First post 2016

I have a little bit to share.

New start - I always start a new project on New Year's Day and here it is.  Ester's Waves by Northern Expressions Needlework using Dinky Dye silks on Weeks Dye Works linen.
A couple finishes.

I have another, but forgot to take a picture.  I will share that later.

And, finally, some thrift store finds.

I will be back soon, I hope, with some more.

See ya!

A win, a finish, a "rescue", and some stash!

First, the finish, by Milady's Needle
Next, the win from Winding Vine Wanderings - a pinch pocket - thanks Patti!
Next, the "rescue" from the local Goodwill Store.  Very nicely done!

And finally, some stash!  Some was free and I bought the rest.  Dinky Dyes silks on sale for 40% off, the fabric by Weeks Dye Works for Esther's Waves, a pin, and a chart.

 By Guilda Manfrini (?)  I don't know if I got the name right and I don't have the chart handy right now.  This may be a new start for me soon! :-)
 The above was the free stuff :-)  Amazing Grace chart, White Kitten kit, 30 count linen by Zweigart, and some 28 count evenweave.
Esther's Waves by Northern Expressions Needlework with the 36 ct. linen by Weeks Dye Works and Dinky Dyes silk.

Been busy around here, sorry for the absence.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Look what I got!
A needlecase, with magnets, from Fiberlicious Yummy Fibers.  Handmade and it really sparkles!  She has a Facebook page and does hand dyed floss and silks.  And they are all gorgeous!
