Happy May Day....And Early Work Mercantile...

Yahoo....Out of the hundreds of project that I have started (well maybe hundreds is a exaggeration or maybe not) and have been telling all of you fun people out in blog land about, I finished four of them...First off is my flower pin-keep...The cross stitch design came for a antique sampler.....I love any thing that is old and rusty, so I thought the old key and beads might be a nice touch....

Next I moved to wool applique for a candle mat....

Next is my wool appliqued pillow....I have this thing for pillows, I never think a girl can have to many...

My last finish is a wool appliqued strawberry table mat...The appliqued designs I just finished came from Primitive Gathering.
That is what I finished this week....I will be listing all of these items on Early Work Mercantile tonight....If you have the time I would love it if you could stop by and take a look...
That is all the fun facts I have for today.....Thanks so much for all the kind comments, you make my day.....Take care, Nancy


  1. You do such beautiful work. I just went to Early Work Mercantile to see if they were up and they aren't yet. I wish I was a millionaire because I would buy every thing on your page. I love all of your Easter stuff just as much.
    I will be checking back.
    You know when I look at everything you make it just makes me so happy.
    So glad you share what you make because it makes me always want to go pick up my needle.
    Pretty as always,

  2. They are so wonderful, I would have more oil lows if I didn't have five hounds that thought they were just large toys. xox Corrine

  3. Everything is so beautiful and meticulously finished. I get so inspired looking at your pieces. Of course my favorite is your cross stitched pinkeep. That is my soft spot, as you know. Best of luck on the EWM.

  4. beautiful! I really love that little pin cushion w/ the scissors...too cute!

  5. Well done you! There's such a feeling of satisfaction on finishing projects... even when they take longer than planned! And they are so lovely and summery!

  6. What fun finishes! I want to try wool applique one of these days. Your projects are always so inspiring!
