A Project a Day keeps the doctor away.........

One of my favorite spots to sit in the Summer evenings. I love to swing.
I made a pillow this morning to add for mine and Thomas's pleasure, as he sits here quite often, or should I say lounges here.

Playing with sewing machine and 2 fatquarters and some ribbon and using some little crosses  I made this:
The first time I've actually tried to machine sew ribbon on something.
Four crosses for the furbabies we have.
I had this top fat quarter since the Spring and just hadn't made it into something yet.
The back is similar. I like the beehives and the arbor in vine.

in their own way.

And also this morning, finally found the wooden box filled with goodies I thought I lost somewhere in the house for Karyn. Karyn, it's coming your way!!!!!!! Thanks for your purchase at The Shoppe.

And if your name starts with a P
And you really dig tea;
And you just adopted a dog, Melody
Then this was made for you this morning!

An old linen calender to hang on your frig minus the calender and added with trim.
It has all the kinds of tea and names. Hope you's heading your way soon.
