Clothespin Ditty Bag ~

Hi Folks!
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...

(beautiful hooked rug & needlepunch above by Homespunprims ~ Lori Rippey)

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 *

Hi Lori,
Glad to hear you are feeling better and got to see Hannah. I know that was good medicine. Love your ditty bag and Peter's clothes pins. You two make a great creative team. Also want to thank you for mentioning the hand-mades you purchased from me. They look wonderful in your farmhouse. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Lori

Happy to hear that you're feeling better! The rosemary bread sounds wonderful; any chance for a recipe? My herbs are still thriving, as we really haven't had a frost yet, so I am looking for ways to enjoy them while they last. The ditty bag is wonderful!
