Three completed projects

Well, hello there everyone! Yup, it's been a while, hasn't it? I finally have something to post, though. I finished the Cozy Cottages BOM from Shabby Fabrics yesterday! OK I do have to add a label but otherwise it's done. I took some photos this morning that I'd love to share with you.
I almost bound it in a green print, but then I got a yard of this aqua fabric from Sharon and I thought it went better. You can sort of see it better in the next pic.

Here are a few more pics just for fun!

I also made a few wool felt candle mats from Penny Lane Primitives. In my last post, I showed you the images from the website, as well as the patterns and bundle that I received. Don't you just love her patterns?? I find handwork so relaxing. Plus working with wool is doesn't unravel, and it just takes embroidery floss so well. Know what I mean? Anyway, here's the first one...the pattern is called "Spring." I bought the kit for this one since I didn't really have lighter-color wools. Colonial Crafts was very generous with the amount of wool felt they sent...I had plenty left over. The following pictures are mine:

And the second one is called "Penny Sheep." I didn't buy the kit but I did buy a bundle of primitive-color felt bundle.

Now I'm starting another embroidery project I got from Sharon. I'll be sure to show you when it's finished! Have a wonderful day!
