Couple o’ finished projects

In between being bitten by white-tails and being mildly disgruntled, I’ve been doing a little bit of stitching to catch up on swaps.  Here’s a quick show’n’tell of two rockabilly napkins I recently finished for a 5 things swap.


I used iron- ons from the Sublime Stitching book and added a bit of freehand text with appropriate phrases.  I decided that my swap buddies can use them as place mats, rather than napkins, and I hope they like ’em.

    Whitetails! Yuck! I still have the scar. We can swap stories of how gross the sores are!!! Hope your bites were not too bad.

    Stitcheries are gorgeous.
