Fabric Covered Boxes and a Lil' of This & That!
It's been a busy weekend and I'm pleased as can be with the fabric covered boxes I made. A group I belong to called "An American Primitive Gathering" hosted a weekend internet retreat. It's been great fun seeing all the photo's as everyone has worked on making covering boxes and completing projects.
I finished the redwork bunny announcing spring into a prim pillow.
These sweet lil' bunnies were primitively stitched with hand dyed crochet cotton to give it a time worn look then I fashioned it into a pillow stuffed with scraps of fabric to give it a olde~time feel.
I guess bunnies was the theme for the most part....finished up a sewing pocket to hold a little project.
Wool applique with just a touch of embroidery and there you have it a couple of tiny pinkeeps that would be great to take along for when you want to take work on a project on the go.
More covered boxes....may be why Danny decided to head on down to the barn as I was looking for more things to cover up with glue and fabric!
Now I'm off to see if I can start hooking the border on the "NOEL" rug that I've been working on. So it's been a productive weekend with the washing machine busily humming and several projects coming together.
