I haven't gotten a lot done this week, resting from my rib injury and today I was finally able to get the house clean. I am hoping I can get out tomorrow, maybe even a paddle since the temps will be in the 60's.
I finished the stitching on my Spencerian stitchery but I haven't decided how I want to finish it, so I put a photo frame on it. It does look nice framed.
I lightened it up a bit so it looks whiter than it is. I didn't antique it, but it is stitched on tea stained muslin. I was afraid the details might get lost if I darkened it with walnut stain.
If you are looking for something fun and free to make this weekend, here are a couple of websites that have new projects that you might like to make. They also have other free patterns so check out their back posts.
A fun strawberry pillow can be found at Scrap Quilt and Stitch. It is done in wool, so a quick project to do over the weekend for some summer bowl fillers.
Zulu and Co has a wonderful bag that would be fun to make and a great gift idea. She offers a template for the pattern, but you will have to figure out how to sew it yourself. It is a simple design, so it wouldn't be hard to figure out.
