I am always late getting this posted. I guess I'll have to rough draft it on Tues and just up load it on Wed. I finished some projects that I was working on before my retreat.
This is a special candle mat. It was for a friend of mine for Christmas. Yep and she just got it last week. Most of my friends realize my short comings with deadlines and are forgiving. They always say the my gifts are worth the wait. My friend Cheryl got this gift because she will treasure it for a couple of reasons. First because it's handmade but also because I used my feedsacks to make it. The running stitch is done with the string that I pull out of the feedsacks. This is the before picture.
After I coffee stained it.
This is a flannel quilt I made for my niece. She's at college so I thought this would be a great to throw around quilt and still be comfy and warm.
Rondel was talking about a country store that had a room of 50% of merchandise. Well she live around me so I had to find it and visit. These are several of the things I bought. The stacking boxes are going to be for all the small electronics that lay around my house that don't boast prim. I'm not sure what I'll put in the long basket. Probably the hanging wheat on the end of the rack would be tall enough. And last but not least the homespun. It was only $3.00 a yard. I have a feeling I'll be going back for more.
It's been rain and freezing then snowing her today.They cancelled school and my girls have been home all day so I got little done. Maybe tomorrow before I go to work. I'd like to get some hearts made to go in my potpourri.
Be sure and visit Leslie at My Country Home to see what everyone else is working on and join in the fun and inspiration.
Until next time,
