Hello my Friends! I know, once again, that I've been remiss in writing a blog post...there just has been so much going on and not enough hours in the day!

Last week, the hubby and I did a little Antiquing. The first time in over a year! We were only able to explore for about 45 minutes, but it was totally worth it! I scored some vintage sewing notions and my love of finding antique tomato pincushions has been born! I also found an antique ceramic crock that I have been searching for.

Hello Stitchy Friends!
Okay, I know I'm late in getting my blog posts up...but in my defense, we lost power for 7 days! It was all due to a nasty ice storm that swept through our area. It made a huge mess! Even now there are still lots of people without power. So I'm going to try and get back on track again!
Once the power came back on, it was all about catching up with household chores...but once those were done...I fully finished Addie Sutton Sampler by Country Rustic Primitives. I had a frame that was just the right size, but not the right color and gave it a fresh look! I painted it with some Folk Art Paint in black and once it was dry, I took a piece of sandpaper and roughed it up a bit. Once my frame was ready, I dipped my stitching in a bowl of coffee to dye it and then baked it in the oven until it was dry.

So lets try this blogging thing again....
I know it's been awhile since I last posted. I never intended for it to be so long. I'm going to try something a little new and set a reminder on my phone to let me know, "Hey it's time for a post!". Then I'll pop on and share about what I've been working on to date. Hopefully there will be a finish now and again to show!
I did make a few color changes....
What I used is listed on the left,
DMC 839 for 300
DMC 3031 for 610
DMC 3781 for 612
DMC 780 for 783
DMC 3857 for 921
DMC 422 for 3033
I stitched him on a piece of 36 count Summer Khaki, that once the stitching was finished, I sprayed with some antiquing spray by Primitive Gatherings and baked it in the oven to dry;)
I'm going to shoot for another post to come out on Thursday...so until then...Happy Stitching!
