Simple pleasures




I've had some small finishes from the sewing basket today, and managed to at least finished up the cross-stitch I was doing. I've something planned for this little piece and hope to get to it at some point.

 
I also did two woven potholders and made a crochet dishcloth to go with them. I'm not really a lover of pink, but I like this sweet little set.

 
The shirt that I cut up and used with the woven pot holders also is finding it's way into other embroidery; like this sunbonnet gal WIP on  a dish towel to go with the dishcloth and potholders.
 
On my to finish list: The strippy quilt. Crochet granny square throw. A teapot luncheon cloth. A scrapbook mini album...And some where in this I want to try making cinnamon rolls. Of course I'd share the cinnamon rolls if I could...
 
I hope everyone is having a good day or evening.

  1. Shiralee, I would love to see how you made those potholders. Did you make the loom you used or was it bought? How did you finish off the edges...did you crochet them? Can you email me? Ta!
