Whole Lotta Love Day 13 - Prim Crafting

Wow! It's the 13th day of Cindi's chain, Whole Lotta Love and I hope you've been enjoying it as much as me! Thanks Cindi!

  Surprise, surprise!  Bet you couldn't guess I love crafting!!  Seriously, I need to get some stitching therapy everyday! 

I've been trying to learn some new stitches. This is my newest pouch in wool from Linda Hall's wonderful pattern and I tried some herringbone stitch and feather stitch though it leaves a lot to be desired!
 Can't get away from the bliss of cross stitching~


It's so much fun to sew a doll and see them take on their own personality.
 I 'll even have a go painting - a free hand checker board

 and 'redware'!!
 I had a go at simple quilting with some homespun scraps and words that say it all...

 

Thank you all once again for being the best blogging friends!
