Some Friday Finishes

Yea~it's Friday!! I had a wonderful day today. First off I didn't have to work today. Second~I found more goodies at the thrift shop. #3~My Pickled Pepper Patch Swap partner & I have been in contact & I now have some ideas of what to send her for our textile swap. My partner is Lecia . If you get a chance, click on her name to check out her blog. Sher & her hubby have been renovating an old farmhouse. I'm sure she'd love to hear from you. And last but not least, I'm doing a swap with Donna over at Sweet Prairie Dwellings. I'm one lucky lady. I'm doing 2 swaps!! Yippee!!

Anyway~on to my finishes...

Remember my labels from Natalie?


I found some jars at the thrift store today & went right to work attaching my labels.


This jar with the Wool label is my favorite. I had this jar & it was full of wool strips & my hook for rug hooking. I haven't hooked in a while, but I know one day I will go back to hooking rugs.


This little crock has already found a home.


This one is in my kitchen. I love how these turned out.


This cross stitch was finished last night. I was too tired to sew, but wanted to do something so I sat on the couch & finished this up. I tea dyed it and attached it to my $ store candle that I grubbed up. The candle is just a jar candle that I grubbied up with modge podge & spices. I really love how this turned out. I may have to go buy more candles so I can make some to sell. The pattern came from a sampler book I borrowed from the library.


This is my next project. No~I'm not going to the restroom LOL. I'm working on a challenge that Donna is putting on. There's still time for you to join in. Click on Donna's name above to check out her blog & join in on the fun!!


Gotta go~hubs called & is on his way home from work & is starving. I need to start cooking & stash my goodies I picked up today.

Have a wonderful week end!!
