Craigslist A Girl's Best Friend

I just love Craigslist - I need to stay off of it, but I just cannot help myself.

So last night I was searching and found some great primitive Chairs.

The first one - I really want this - anyone living in Northwest Ct - driving to Maryland - let me know.

Second is a set of Johnston Benchworks Wing Chairs... I absolutely love Johnston Benchworks - I need another living room, but would love to have these.

Sampler on Board

Here is another piece that I stitched. This is from Brenda Gervais - Country Stitches... I worked on this for almost a year - I would work on it and then put it away for a couple of months, etc. I just do not know where I am going to hang it.

Finished Crow Cross Stitch

Hi Everyone,

I just finished this crow cross stitch... I love how it turned out. The pattern is from Primitive Betty's - I just love her designs - always great for the primitive home. Then I took some hints from Nan - Threadwork Primitives to create this. I am still new at the stitching thing so I am learning but loving every minute of it. I stitched the crow piece and then I sewed it to the fabric to make it a pouch and stuck some wool in there. I love the fabric I used too - It is part of the Williamsburg collection.

I am going to start working on Betty's Live, Laugh, Love sampler this week. Hopefully it does not take me a year to finish it.
