Country Life was put aside for a few days to work on Seek Joy in All Things from Stacy Nash Primitives. I wanted a pin keep to place in a Shaker tray that sits next to my stitching chair, and this was a quick and easy project. There were a couple of firsts involved. It was the first time I have used walnut crystals for aging the linen, and it was a first in using crushed walnut shells for the filling. I love both. The shells really give the keep a nice solid weight. I bought a bag of the stuff at PETCO, and when the cashier rang me up, he wanted to know what kind of reptile I had. Eeeeuuuwwww... I found that funny since I have such a strong aversion to anything that has a darting forked tongue and slithers. Since I now have a huge container of the stuff, I need to stitch up the other SN designs waiting in the wings
Isn't the sampler fabric wonderful? I have to say thank you again to two friends for sharing it with me. I think it matches perfectly.
Hi, I'm Tanya. Our home is shared with three Bostons named Rhubarb, Scarlett, and Henry. It's never a dull moment with 12 little paws underfoot. I am passionate about stitching samplers, and I love sharing that passion with like-minded people. I also enjoy antiquing and decorating our house with my finds.
