Work on all my larger projects seems to have stalled, but I keep going to the pattern stash for Little Things. And I did the finishing, too!
First up is a freebie from...I think it was Armada Designs, a long time ago? It is a reference to a character from "Game of Thrones," and it just made me giggle. I honestly don't think I'd ever hang it on my Christmas tree, but it was just a fun little stitch.
And then, when I was looking through my quilting/finishing fabric stash for something, I found two little houses I stitched a couple years ago - I think they were part of one of the "Year of Smalls" SALs. And there was a piece of quilting cotton that had a similar design, so I sewed them together. I found this little shadowbox at a thrift store (I think it had some quote about pets in the middle) and added the pine branch pipe cleaners to fill the space around the stitched piece. I couldn't make the stitched piece any larger - the brown fabric was cheap, stiff stuff from a magazine kit, and the blue was reeeally soft evenweave that kept fraying. There was a LOT of glue involved in getting this all together!
I keep thinking that it needs just a little bit "more" - maybe a little bow or 2? I'll have to think about it for a while.
