Thank you to My Old Crow Primitives

I recently won a giveaway from Mona at My Old Crow Primitives Blog - visit her HERE .  
Mona started out the giveaway with this gorgeous strawberry pinkeep.  The strawberry is velvet and the hull is wool.  I apologize to Mona, my photos just don't do justice to her work - it's perfect.  

In another post, Mona added these two pillows to her giveaway.  George & Abe attached to coverlet pillows with sprigs of sweet annie.  
Mona also said there would be some surprises tucked into the box.  She wasn't kidding!  Included in the box were these 2 pinkeeps.  I've already said this but, WOW her work is perfection.  

You can also find Mona at Primitives Handmade Mercantile HERE or HERE at TDIPT

Mona, Thank you so much for all the lovely handmade items you sent me.  I'm enjoying the potpourri too!

On to an update in my Challenge to Cathy from Tolentreasures blog found HERE.  If you missed my post yesterday, I issued a challenge to Cathy for the 2 of us to get those UFO's done, so we can move on to create more UFO's!

#1 Finish - mended son's tie - no photo!

#2 Finish - Made the wool pillow for this little stitchery and blanket stitched the two together.

#3 Finish - I needed to dig through my buttons to find 2 that I could use on this piece for wagon wheels.  Then I framed it in a Thrift store frame.  

Finish #4 -  "LOVE" by Country Rustic Primitives - you can find her patterns HERE .  I decided to do another wool pillow and used primitive stitching to attach the actual stitchery.  I added a rusty skeleton key and a couple of antique buttons from my Grandmother's stash. 

I guess you will notice this was wool pillow day!
Finish #5 "Joy" by Pineberry Lane - it's a free pattern found HERE 

Finish #6 - "Hocus Pocus" from The Stitcherhood found HERE I backed this one with a black calico fabric.   

I'll be back tomorrow or Thursday with more finishes!
Anyone else want to join the fun?

  11. Oh my heavens Ann. Your newly finished stitcheries are amazing. I especially love the Hocus Pocus one. I am getting in the mood for Fall:) What fun to have a friendly competition with Cathy. I just got done visiting her blog this morning and she made reference to your little challenge. I think it's great to do that with a friend and it makes things interesting for us fellow bloggers to watch:) Congrats on your win from Mona. She really sent you some neat goodies. I am happy for you. Thanks for always visiting me and leaving sweet comments on my blog. I always enjoy it. -Steph-
