My little pincushion has gotten a workout lately, but now I have a finish to share:
"Arrangement in a Pewter Dish"
A Country Sampler Club Kit
design by Maggie Bonanomi
I love how when you layer the flowers, they start to become a bit 3 dimensional.
And I love the wonderful subtle colors. I still need to back it, but wanted to take the pictures quick before the sun goes down...
Today our town's historical society had their annual antique flea market. I really tried to be good, but I did buy a few things:
I love the shape of the graniteware lunch pail and it has a neat lid. I thought it might be pretty as a vase with fall foliage and branches.
I collect wooden pie crimpers and couldn't pass this one up for $3. I'll have to share my collection sometime...
And I now own my second Roycroft Published book! This one dated 1920 has a neat burlap cover and is about Abe Lincoln and his mother, Nancy Hanks. It is pretty worn and well loved, but a deal at $2.
Hope you are finding fun and steadily stitching this weekend - please share what you are doing!
