Finished Project and Fun Acquisitions


Pattern is Happy Halloween by Primrose Cottage Stitches

Better late than never but it’s all finished! Yesterday I bought an unfinished wood frame from Michaels that I painted black and added a touch of metallic to give it a bit of shine and then sanded around the edges for a slight distressed look.   

Once the paint was all dry, I glued on an 8”x 8” piece of Tim Holtz fabric in Wicked, glued black trim around the inside edge of the frame to give it a more finished look and also used the same trim for a hanger.  I just noticed my piece isn’t quite centered but I love it and think it will be great for next year.

Today at Hobby Lobby I picked up a few pieces that I will be using for Thanksgiving and Christmas cross stitch projects, plus two kits.  Christmas and Thanksgiving items were 50% off, so that made me very happy.

I love this truck!

These will be for cross stitch pieces. I better get stitching!

Isn’t this wheel barrow

I’m getting ready to to start my first Thanksgiving stitching project, a free pattern that was included in my recent Primrose Cottage Stitches newsletter. My fabric is ready and I have all my thread colors collected, time to start stitching!

What are you working on today?

  1. Juliann I totally get that and that was me last month. Now I only have vanilla socks on my needles and will work on them when I feel like. Meantime I’m enjoying working on other things, especially cross stitching.
