Here's a freebie for you to keep you occupied until your local shop owner brings back all the goodies from Market. Are you excited about all the new things coming? I'll post my Market releases this coming week . . . keeping you in suspense a little bit longer (actually just picked up the last two at the framer on Friday and haven't taken the pictures for the patterns yet).
I used Gentle Art threads: Rose Garden, Carriage Black and Lexington Green. I backed it with some coordinating fabric, filled it with crushed walnut shells and stitched this cute rosebud ribbon around the seam. The rosebud ribbon was in a box of silk ribbons and threads my mother gave me when she stopped stitching.
So who are you rooting for? Since the Steelers (my favorite team) aren't in the Super Bowl I'm rooting for the Broncos . . . I like Peyton . . . seems like a good guy. I was conflicted about whether to watch the Super Bowl or Downton Abbey, but just in the nick-of-time, the DVD of Season 4 I ordered arrived this week! Guess what I'll be watching tomorrow!
Go Broncos! ~*
