MY FIRST STITCHERY & A THRIFT STORE FIND

I have admired so many of your beautiful stitcheries and I finally decided I would try one. I believe I got this pattern from Primitive Betty. I had intended to frame it but never got a frame the correct size. Instead, I made a small pillow. I will be doing more because it is something I can do while I am sitting and watching TV with my husband. There are so many free patterns out there and they are pretty simple to do. I know I'll get better with my stitches.

I made my weekly trip to the Thrift Store and I found this beautiful quilt rack. It was $12.98 but I had a 50% off coupon that expired the end of September (that I bought from the school) so I went ahead and used it on this. That means I got this for $6.49. It is in great condition and I know that my old quilts will be beautiful on it.

Your pillow is adorable. Isn't it amazing how many talented artists share their patterns?

What a great buy on the quilt rack.

I hope this new week is good to you!

You really have so much talent!

Love the pillow and of course I love the quilt rack, I have one just like it that I hang old quilts from. My favorite quilt is one that my hubby's Grandmother made for us and it takes front and center on the rack.

Oh, I love that primitive stitchery...I think I might have to try something like that...you know put it on my "to do" list of projects. Seriously, I think I could probably stay busy for about a year with my blog file of projects...heehee
