Not stitching


A few months ago i received this framed Caleb piece from my friend. Its basically letters and circles cut out of fabric and hand-sewn on to a larger piece of fabric. I have no desire to stitch at the moment and so ive decided to try something similar for my niece. I cut out the fabrics last night.
Im not going to frame it, i think i'll make it into a pillow. I'll wait and see how it looks once its all sewn on.

Ive stitched 3 Christmas ornies recently, for Clare, Kathy and Jill. Now i just need to do the finishing.

That's a wonderful idea Cheryl! And yours looks just great :)
Is the fabric wool that the letters and circles are cut from?

What a fun craft to try! Sometimes we need to step back from our stitching and try our hands at something different!

Am suffering from a lack of stitching mojo too - seems to be a lot of it about at the moment.

NO desire to stitch? What's that???!! Oh wait-- could it be you might be a tad busy? :)

I hope your pillow turns out well-- I frankly think it will be darling.
