A finish and some WIP's

I have had my  "Wynter Peacocks"  Sewing Pouch finished for a while now.   It is the first project from the Ladies Prim Society.  It is by Threadwork Primitive for Dyeing to Stitch.  It was a fun and fast project.  I loved everything about this kit. The stitching fabric, the floss colors, finishing fabrics and the directions. 


A peek at the inside.



I love those little x's around the seams  but I can never get them to look right.


This is the first time that I have joined a club and have had my project finished before the next  one has  arrived.  What a good feeling.  I want to try and  keep up with the other Prim Ladies.  I am excited to see the next project.  I hope it comes soon.

I have been stitching on WTNAT Strawberry Hill  Sewing Box.  I stitch on it on Tuesdays stitching with the Loose Threads.  The name of our group could not be more appropriate.  We always have a great time.  I like every part of this pattern and want to stitch them all. I love the colors.  I am using the floss and fabric called for in the pattern.   My stitching at home is mostly for Christmas.
In an earlier post I mentioned that I had made little pillows for my friends for Valentine's day.  Well here it is. I am not sure where I got this pattern as I have had it for awhile.  It looks like I ripped it from a magazine.  If anyone knows its origin I will give credit in a later post.

When I saw the releases from the  2013 Nashville Market I had to have this pattern (along with many more).  It is "Spring Flowers" by Stacy Nash.  I ordered it right away from The Strawberry Sampler and it was here in no time.  I may even get this piece finished for Easter.  Isn't that the cutest bunny?

Lastly  is a picture of a pincushion I made for Margaret  that I  forgot to take a picture of before I mailed it.  Margaret was kind enough to send me a picture.  Thank you again, Margaret.  It is a pattern by Priscilla's Pocket. 
Well,  I think that is enough for tonight.  It is time for American Idol.  I don't know who she will be... but I know it will be a lady winner this year.  Have a great weekend everyone.  I'll be back soon.

Hugs and Stitches,

Pat

Pat you did a fantastic job on your Wynter Peacock piece. I'm a member too and feel exactly the same way as you do. Can't wait for the next piece. Love the name of your group! How thoughtful of you to make such an adorable keepsake for them. And the piece you made for Margaret is so precious. Can't wait to see your Spring Flowers when it's finished.

Your Wynter Peacock is gorgeous Pat!
Beautifully stitched and finished.
Love the Valentine pillows you did for the stitching club girls and you are already making good progress on the WIPS.
Of course I feel very lucky that the wool pillow is here with me and matches the colours in the guest room perfectly :)
Hugs,
Margaret

Those stitcheries are lovely. I dont' normally like the traditional ones, but yes that bunny is too cute, and the peacocks are pretty too.
