Even though they took forever to do, since I've had no training or proper supplies, they were both fun and frustrating to paint. Goodbye Santa! I'll see you in stitches!
Wouldn't these little ring boxes make cute thimble boxes? I also have two basket kits from 25 years ago! They should be complete, I will never use them, so out they go.
And here's my new pincushion along with an old coverlet piece pillow that I found for little $$$ yesterday.
Back to stitching. I bought this pattern years ago from Fanci That and get a chuckle every time I look at her. This is Stella's Brooms n Brellas and Mom was named Stella. I was looking through some Santa charts and think this may be my next one.
This series of charts from the 80's are all adopted from antique post cards. They range from 39 to 63 stitches wide, and 85 to 97 high. I put them on EBay a while back and no one bid so I decided to keep them mainly because of their detail and small size.
Wouldn't they make great ornaments for a feather tree? As you know, I have plenty of trees, so these 14 would be perfect for a postcard Santa tree. Fourteen???? Maybe not. I'll be in that home getting a knick knack for a bingo win before those are completed. I have a few more things to show but that's way too much already.
