Well I am feeling SO much better ~ thanks to all for the well-wishes :)
We did get to visit Hannah yesterday ~ I am so happy we did!
We went to Richmond to Cary Town, a district near where she lives...
...it was a beautiful day and we had a wonderful time with her and it was great seeing Skyler too!
It was some much-needed time and I'm happy we all got to spend some time together ~
...can't wait for her to come home for the Holidays.
I wanted to share my finish of the little
Clothespin Ditty Bag
that I've been stitching up, to hold Peters awesome clothespins:
|plain & simple|
after finishing the cross stitching, I simply folded back the linen to within 1/4" of the last stitch on all 4 sides of the project and stitched it to the front of a bag that I made using repro & early fabrics...

here is the patch on the back:
|~ beautiful browns ~|
here is a close up of the patched hole on the front of the bag:
I used ealry brown/cream homespun for that...
|use it up ~ wear it out ~ make it do ~ or do without.|
the pattern is now available in our ETSY shop ~
the pattern includes the finishing instructions for the finished bag too!
|one of our black colonial racks in our kitchen holds the ditty bag ~|
I am off to do some grocery shopping today ~
our cupboards are bare and I would like to bake some fresh rosemary bread tomorrow...
Come by again soon &
* Blessed be *
