Simply Spring # 3 Prim Pillow Pocket & Peg Doll

 Eventually.... it's been a whirlwind of a week for no reason in particular. Maybe it's the weather but I feel unsettled - anyone else feel like that?

Well here's my third little make for simply spring - a prim pillow pocket and (peg) doll.  I used some cream homespun for the pillow which is lightly stuffed - if I could have I would have used sawdust but rag cuts do nicely.
 The little pocket has a childish, naive look and it has some Sweet Annie in it.
 Now old style clothes pins/pegs are not readily found here so I substituted one for a thin cloth 'pin' and simply wrapped it in a spring yellow print and tied a little bonnet on top.  Then secure it in place with some jute and you're done!

 And here's a quick peek at my latest WIP cross stitch - LOVE the bee
 and that it mentions Ohio coz that's where it's from... Would love to go back some day... you just never know I might make it back over the pond...I'll dream on ...

Thank you for stopping by - you're fun company!
Happy weekend, friends!
