Thats where I've been....taking care of unfinished handmades for the most part.....that and Farmville on facebook...OMG-let me kill the person who started me on that stupid game (hehehehe...she knows who she is...) Don't ever started playing that game- it is addictive and sucks you right in. lol. It's even sucked Craig in....does Facebook have Farmers Anonymous meetings?? Hello...my name is Jody and I'm a Farmville addict......lol. Ok, back to business.... I had started these stitcheries from one of Jenny's designs a while back for myself and decided I needed to get them finished now or I never would. Feels kinda good to keep some of the things I make now and then... :0)
I made these for me, too. I bought the stencils a while back from Stencil Me In and Homestead Stencil Co., I just love them- not sure where I'll be putting them yet, but they'll look good anywhere....Me and Craig have also been helping my mom out- helping her with some work on her property and such which has kept us busy on Craigs days off. I haven't made anything to sell, but if you see something you like, give me a shout- I could make you one just like it. (Except for the penny rug- I don't see myself making another one for while...lol). I should get going- Craig just came home off graveyards and I want to see him before he goes to bed. Until next time.....~Jody
I've had this old paned window for quite a while and it's been hanging out in storage waiting for me to do something with it. I'm always looking through my old copies of Country Sampler for ideas- I saw something similar in an old issue (except theirs was done with an old quilt piece) and since I already had a flag I think it turned out pretty neat. It's a 3x5 flag- I just folded it to fit and tacked it to the back of the frame. It hangs above the peg rack in the entryway....
Another unfinished project done! I started this wool felt penny rug over a year ago and it sat 10% finished until now. It sits under the lamp on my nightstand now... I used a tutorial Colleen has on her blog and one of her patterns to put it together. I know my stitches aren't perfect but hey, I thought I did good for my first rug. It has three pennies per circle on the front and a fourth penny per circle to finish the backing....so what's that...170-some pennies? I knew there was a reason I kept putting off finishing it...lol.
