Friday Finish and New BOM

 Hi friends, how has your week been? It seems to have passed in a blur for me! And now that I think about it, that's January all but over too? What is happening!?  In between the usual I have been able to pick up my needle and thread to sew another sweet spring pouch, this time in blues.

 I took these shots this morning with the sunshine streaming in and that's always a welcome sight after dark dreary January days.
 This is my latest venture and one I am quite excited about! I am going to join Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin for her very generous BOM series of wool applique throughout the year.

I have just completed the first one ~ smiles!

 To me it's prim perfect! What's not to love about a pattern with a pineapple and a sheep with a star on its behind!! Lovin' it! And of course I get a chance to play with wools! Yayy!
Well lots more to do and lots more sewing I hope over the weekend with some Valentine's crafting to boot! Are you doing any crafting or sewing?
Always great to hear from you and thanks so much for your visit!

  9. Your creations are always so beautiful - and I love the color of the linen you use - as well as the design itself.
    Love the applique and it has all the elements that I 'love'.

  10. Love your newest finish and your BOM is wonderful! I saw the post at Buttermilk Basin, might have to go and download the pattern, it's very cute.

  14. Your pouch is so pretty with the pines sticking out, great decoration. Your sheep is too cute, look forward to what else you will be doing.... I have a quilt in the process of needing a border put on but that is going to have to wait awhile and I am also doing a wedding cross-stitch

  15. The soft shade of blue in the flower is perfect; how dainty and darling this little pouch is!

    Have a lovely week!
