This week I was able to make two items and one is a freebie. The freebie is offered by Michelle Palmer on her facebook page, Michelle Palmer Artist. She offers one each year, and I love this new one. It was fun to do and can be done in primitive wools or bright wools.
The stocking is about 9" tall. I think it makes a nice gift that you can add some candy to, or some lip balm, etc. You can find the pattern at the link above. You can see a little shading on his head and tail, I used walnut ink but it faded as it dried, so I can add a little more.
My next piece is a design by Kathy Schmitz for her One Stitch Club. I decided to do it in Christmas colors, on a tea towel, perfect for a gift.
This week I was able to get in a beach day. Bill has his laser surgery and a late appointment the next day, so we got in a few hours at the beach. I got quite a few nice treasures, that large chunk is an old green piece and the larger rock would make a nice shape to do a nativity scene.
Do you see that smaller dark piece above the green and yellow one?
Well, I got a nice surprise when I put it to the light and saw that it was a piece of red glass with a gold decoration on it. I almost threw it away, thinking it was a piece of a new bottle.
I hope you all have a nice weekend and not snow bound. It is colder here, but it will be sunny.
