Good Tuesday Morning....

I almost typed Monday because DH was home yesterday and it just throws my whole week off.  I'm a Monday laundry person and here I am doing it on a Tuesday....it's gonna mess me up for the entire week.  (sigh)

Well I finished Slate Snowman and I love him.  This is the biggest Shepherd's Bush design I've ever done and it's not really that big....maybe 6 x 8 inches at the most.  I have one of her Gatherers in my collection and I keep putting it off because of the size.  Maybe now I'll tackle it.  Here he is in all his glory.....

I absolutely love him and I'm looking for an off white primitive frame for him.

Next project is a Threadwork Primitives sampler called "Never Fading".  What I like about this sampler is that at the bottom they used a piece of WDW hand dyed wool and attached old buttons, charms, pins, etc.  I have an idea brewing in my head as to what I want to attach to the wool but first I must stitch the design.

I haven't chosen fabric yet but I'm definitely using silks for the stitching.

Well back to my off day laundry day (sigh) and I'm hoping you all have a really great week in whatever you decide to do.

Blessings, Barbara

Barbara: Congratulations on the finish on the Snowman, he is adorable, love the fabric color so much.
I am a Monday laundry person myself have been for 39 years, when I was working I did laundry on Mondays, dust on Wednesday's and vacuum and wash floors on Thursday's so I could have the week-end for me.
I am looking forward to seeing your next project.
Fall is here brrrr.

Isn't it funny how the littlest things throw us off-track.
I guess we really are creatures of habit. lol
Slate Snowman turned out so pretty, I just love that fabric.
Love your next project.
I too am working on a Threadworks Primitive piece called Wild Pomegranate.

Congratulations on your latest finish.
The Slate Snowman is lovely and the fabric you have used for it is simply the best.

What a lovely Shepherd's Bush piece.

I love the Threadworks Primitive pattern. Can't wait to see your finish. How dare you tempt me to add ANOTHER pattern to my ever-growing wish list!

So nice to know I'm not the only one that gets her days wrong. Love that fabric, great design, and the light frame would be perfect.
