Greetings, friends. Another Friday, but I am one of the lucky ones where every day can be my Friday if I so choose :)
I have a couple more finishes to share with you. I completed my Rebekah L. Smith project from a class that I had taken with her. I was determined to assemble the pouch/pocket, but I found it a real bear to do, but I DID IT! Not sure I'm wild about the handle (I think it needs to be darker), but knowing me, I'll learn to like it :)
I'm not sure why the sides are even but the bottom is so crooked. I used her template, so what happened? Oh, well, I can just say it's the charm of being handmade, right?
Several years ago I started this pattern by Jenny Hoffman, Country Rustic Primitives. I was so close to finishing it when I set it aside. I'm not sure why. Maybe because I did not like the linen I was working it on (liked the look but not the feel of it). Maybe because I made a slight counting error (I won't tell if you won't). Or maybe my hook was screaming my name.
I found it in the cupboard, so decided to pick up my needle and complete it. Now it can join a number of other cross stitch pieces that are just sitting in a box in the closet while I figure out what to do with them.
Yesterday was a springlike day here in northern Ohio. It felt so good and while walking around the yard saw that my snowdrops have peeked through the ground and have buds on them. AAAHHHH. The promise of spring. Today's about 30* colder. Welcome to Ohio :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
