1) This came from the thrift store. Tedd Arnold actually has some local connections, and while Mother Goose rhymes aren't always my first choice of stitching subjects, I like his style. And then I opened it and saw it was autographed - for less than $2, I just couldn't pass it up!
Tending the Blooms) a few years ago, and decided "Keeping the Bees" would be a nice addition to the collection. The SamSarah pattern is another I've liked for a while, and since it was affordable, came with the buttons and wouldn't increase my shipping cost (same seller), I figured why not.
Oubliette had a giveaway, and I won Brightneedle's "Ezmerelda's House." I think it is adorable, and even though Halloween is over for this year, I can see this getting started before next year's spooky season arrives... Thank you, Riona!
The backing is a piece of the fabric I purchased earlier this year at the village yard sales, and the trim is a "pine branch" pipe cleaner.
