Abe & George



 
 
Just a quick post to share a weekend finish.
I shared the stitched pieces last week. This weekend I took a few moments to put them together.
 
Prairie Schooler
Book #160
"February"
 
 
I finished them as two little pinkeeps filled with crushed walnut shells.
 
 
I used some of my precious antique fabric to back them.
I love those antique fabrics, but some are quite fragile. These shredded a bit while finishing.
 
 
I used a quick herringbone stitch along the seams.
 
I have a little Valentine wool project that I hope to finish soon and I really need to stop getting distracted and focus on my March 1st offerings!
Time is ticking :)
 
"Do not those who plot evil go astray?
But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness."

Blessings, Patti
