Another completed needle work

Here it is, another completed needle work piece. This one is done as a small wall hanging, which hangs on a stick, cotton batting in between the needle worked piece and a checkered back. Tea stained of course. Lots of fun to do.
Today was a beautiful summer day, little to no humidity again. Tonight Mike and I will go fishing and enjoy this gorgeous weather. Have a wonderful rest of the week.

Ahhhh, cooler temps, no air conditioner or fans and new shop items!

I'm so happy to report that the humidity is gone, the air conditioners are off, no fans and wide open windows. I even worked in the garden today without breaking into a terrible sweat! What a day. Thank you Mother Nature for the break.
However while I was tucked inside out of the heat I worked on some itty bitty X stitch items. My eyes just are not what they use to be so I only do little projects for a change of pace. So these are the itty bitty's that I have completed this summer. I'm still working on one more, or maybe two more ABC pin cushions. I use mostly scrap floss now all left over from years ago doing larger projects. I feel good about not buying new floss and using up all the left overs. So color choice comes from whatever is left. I came across a gorgeous antique quilt that I purchased many years ago so I decided to take the very worn half of the quilt and make some projects from it. So far I made the two tiny doll pillows or pin cushions.. I think next will be some ornament size Christmas stockings. Its nice to change things up a bit. Soon enough I'll be back on the spinning wheels! Heads up....soon there will be another free give-a-way on this blog! so be sure to sign on as a follower and check back often. Details will be posted soon. Happy Monday. Enjoy, Pam
