So many new projects....not enough time to stitch them.

This week has just flown by. I can't believe that it's Friday already. I did not get a chance to blog last week so there is quite a bit of information to share. As I sit here waiting for the rain to arrive, I will let you know what is on the way. There are so many great new things it makes me want to rush out and start something new but I promised myself to finish what I already started before beginning something else. I wonder how long that will last!

The latest creation from JABC is called the "make-do" pincushion kits. After making the pincushion, you simply drop it into any container that you already have. The instructions given in the kits produce a flat bottomed pincushion that can stand on its own or you can pop it into a mug, an old jar ring or whatever else you have on hand. Each make-do kit comes with hand-dyed wool, roving, buttons, pack of Just Pins and all instructions. It also includes instructions for the Pin-It ornaments. If you would prefer a smaller project, the Pin-It ornaments are available separately.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Lizzie Kate has created a fun little kit called "A Little Love".It includes 32ct. Flax linen, a hand-dyed rose flower button and tiny pale pink beads. The finished size is approximately 3.5" x 3.5".  I don't have a picture now but will post one as soon as I can. It sounds really cute and it's not too big.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and is able to spend some time stitching!
