New Pieces!

I finished a couple of things today.
First is the antique horse that I was working on.
I wanted to mimic the mix of colors that was in the original.
I am also making a cross stitch and a penny rug with the same design.



And during those times when I don't want to think, just keep my hands busy, I make stitcheries.
This is something I can do without looking for colors or materials. I pick some designs and draw them on tea stained muslim with a washable marker. They are fun to do and make great gifts. Also something that can be done with little cost and the designs were freebies from Primitive Blessings.
