Tiny Little Stitches

Hello Friends & Folk ~

it's a little cooler day here today at the farm...but the humidity is still killing me :(
for someone who has pin-straight hair, today mine is looking like a Q-tip.
 completely flerfed & frizzied
(yes those are words...at least in my little world)

I actually don't even have the AC on today ~ giving my electric bill a break...
it's been running non-stop for a week straight, and we don't have central air but wall & window units.
I am really good about not using alot of electricity, in fact, I pride myself in the fact that I have gotten our bill to below $100.00 per month! (not going to be the case for next month's bill, for sure)

So, I have been working on those little stitches that I told you about in my previous posting...
here are a few snaps:












You can see in the photos that I stitched one jack on the lighter side of my linen,
and the other jack is on the reverse, which is stained a little darker

If you have ordered my hand dyed linen from me, make sure you look at each side to decide which is better for your project, the lighter or darker...




I will make the little jacks into tiny round pinkeeps...will show you pics of them once I get more of them stitched up ~

Have a wonderful day my friends, filled with coolness & creativity!!

Blessings from the farm,
Lori
