I listed several of my cute "crewel" pillows in my Etsy shop this week. I am really just making up this stuff. I am using burlap and Vintage wool yarns, mostly French...but, mine is much more loose and freestyle than traditional crewel.
I don't do traditional!
No patterns, kits or charts...just me!
This is my Easter Sweeties pillow. I love the whacky all over the place stitches!
Hey, notice the wooly chick? I made that, in wool of course, with a very old tool that I bought on Ebay! It was from the fifties, but the creator said she designed it in the twenties! How cool? Such a simple tool, but such Fab results!
Oh, yeah, more of those to come too!
Speaking of Easter, I am putting several Easter pre orders on Ebay this week! This is a great way to get your pick and have it custom fit/ made just for your Bunny!

My latest obsession is searching for Vintage Wool Yarn, crewel or tapestry, to use in my newest project....Freehand Silly Stitching! I have always loved crewel, we had those flowery kits in the 70's. And, my first professional work was to design a handknit sweater line which I sold through boutiques for over a decade. But my sweaters were cotton. I am from the south, and we just don't do wool sweaters! I have always loved the feel of wool yarn though. So, I have been working on some cute freehand designs lately. I have stitched these on burlap. I LOVE the way Burlap smells!
The little pillow is the first I've listed on Etsy. My Sweet Hedgehog mini is in my shop right now! (click link on right)
Not being one to follow charts and graphs, I had rather freehand stitch on a whim however I like.
Hey you all...give me some feedback! I am planning on listing several more designs soon...maybe even kits!

This was our "Inspiration Piece" for our Diva Do project this week. I love this style and hope to make more for my Etsy shop soon! I love the retro mod style with the pinky girly look! I also like the contrast of the Shabby Frame with the Mod Pattern!
You can see examples for the girls projects on my Diva Do blog, link on the right.

Here in the South, we are supposed to eat Black Eyed Peas on New Years Day for Good Luck! So, DD and I always make a big pot of Vegetable Soup with Cornbread, and we always include Black Eyed Peas in the soup! Perfect for the cold dreary (as usual) day, and the steamy cooking heats the house up. We usually stay in our PJ's all day on New Years. We go to bed at the normal time the night before too, so Namby Pamby, I know, but that's what we do.
We usually watch the "Twilight Zone" marathon on SyFy.
No, I do not watch SyFy on a reqular basis, only for this retro marathon. It has become one of our quirky traditions! Leave me a comment and tell us all about your New Years Day traditions!
Happy New Year to All of You!...especially Christina over at "icandy", you have been my most often comment-er this year! Thanks for being my cyber friend!
