I pulled out an old pattern I have (I have lots! Who doesn't? LOL)
"COUNTRY STITCHERIES" By Sue Allemand (2002) www.paletteprimitives.com
I first did the chicken, cuz I like chickens. I omitted the "welcome" that is stitched on the original pattern, as I don't like an over abundance of "welcome" things in my house.
Then later I decided I should make the other two patterns as well, a sunflower and a pineapple. I chose to color them in with coloring pencils (the chicken is colored too!) I plan to make another set without the coloring.
All three are finished with coffee staining and rusty safety pins (to attach the homespun). The chicken is the only one I added a little bit of cinnamon to when coffee staining.
I stuffed these snowman pillow ornaments with fabric scraps. They were made to go on our Christmas tree, but I procrastinated about stuffing...
In the kitchen we made banana chip muffins. They tasted awesome warm out of the oven!
I used Bob's Red Mill stone ground wheat flour and some quinoa flour. Nobody noticed that I used coconut sugar in place of organic sugar.
Our homeschool group is going to have a Valentine exchange so Sidekick and I will be making some Valentines. No store bought Valentines for us!
