I have 50 things on my "to do" list + then started talking on the phone, + then it started to rain. DH and DS going to the movies. So, pulled out my bag, nearby, + had my HE project in hand.
"Simply Red, Plus"

The pattern + red fiber were a gift from GF Karol. As I had the blue fiber close at hand, I started with the blue. [Needle Necessities, Inc. #1342]. I'm using a piece of 30-count Lt. Espresso, from the House of Stitches fabric bin!
The pattern has a small pincushion in yellow fiber w/MOP button. The letters are backwards - quite charming; however, I'm going back to the traditional. Stitching over one thread. Should be pretty.
Earlier this week, I managed to sew the bottom part of the the pre-made pieces, to form additional pockets for tools and fibers. Nice to use the outside pockets as well as the inside pockets. From the time I purchased these (even before stitched), I've been using them. Quite handy + a nice size. : )
Earlier this week, I finished Chipmunk, by Prairie Schooler into a needlebook. I used aida cloth - which I like for something that gets a lot of use. In the Woods, The Prairie Schooler, c.1994, Book No. 46
Also, completed the wooden piece by Bucilla. They have a series called Bucilla Handmade Wooden Stitchables. Link here.
