I've been busy..

I've been busy.. but not sewing so much. I did however finish up one project today! Lets cheer for that! I feel like anything I can get done these days is cause for a celebration!

My stitches are not perfect, but mom will like it I think! Pattern is called "Winter Friends" by Penny Lane Primitives. (the pattern has a holly leaf on the other side of the hat, but I didn't put it on - I wanted to make it more generic winter and not so Christmas).

Oh this is absolutely adorable, Dawn. Very cute snowmen. I wish I could work with wool there are so many sweet projects. Sigh!

I pulled out the electron microscope. Couldn't find any stitching problems. Do you think the fact that I'm blind has anything to do with it? silly *karendianne. who thinks she'd like to do wooly things.

Oh my goodness, it's adorable! I love it! Well, yea, your mum will like it! And it is perfect! So stop that nonsense! ;o) I haven't worked in wool as of yet. I have 3 kits that I bought at the Quilted Crow that I have not done yet. I got stuck at the fusible stage! Not sure I want to use that stuff. Do you use it in your work? If so, what kind? We now carry wool at the shoppe and I do need to get familiar with it so that I can help the customers! One day, that's what I keep telling myself! lol Can you tell I'm taking time to do some much needed catch up on blogland? lol Cheers!
