Miss Abbie has had her treat and play time and is lazily soaking in the warmth by the fire.
Up to yesterday during my sparing moments I worked on trying to finish (although slowly) the quaker sampler by Liberty House Primitives and Needlework. It felt good to round 'r up the corners and hope they all meet properly when finishing.
Seems like the old frame I got at a thrift store is just tool large so I'm stumped at what I will frame or maybe I will just make a large pillowkeep with it. I have lots of fat quarters that will look well with it and I can imagine this would be great for the old Hoosier cabinet.
I know alot of folks are working on Christmas and I should be as well. But my next finish will be on one I designed for October 2 years ago for Domestic Violence Awareness month. I only have a very small amount to stitch on it. I also wanted to add a few specialty buttons that I ordered and already have the special order frame for it.
Somewhere in between I"ll squeeze in a Christmas ornie or two.
But my progress on the quaker here:
Here's a wee ornie for your Christmas tree to stitch up today.
