Finally... Some Finishes!

Where did that week go? I can hardly believe it was a week ago that I shared some of the Americana projects I was working on and it's taken me this long to get them together to post about!

Oh well, I'm sure we've all been there, done that, and still doing all of the things that are just part of everyday life.

My favorite is this wool felt penny rug from a Country Stitches pattern - I love it! Though I must put my hand up and confess that it's not quite finished as I still have to sewn on the pennies around the edge.
This is the other end of the mat~ (can you just see the little apples in the trees?) The sheep are better in real life too - all woolly french knots!

This was a beautiful 1776 cross stitch freebie from the Sampler Girl's blog - it's small but lovely to make.

Here are a couple of matching birds I made up myself ~
And lastly for now here's Liberty and Crow made into a pillow and stained!

I will be listing some of these on my blog The Primitive Shelf later if any one is interested in some Americana bits and pieces for their home!

Thanks again for your visit and hope to be back soon!
