What happens when I tidy up

The other day when I finished the little cross stitch wall hanging, I needed a hanger for it. So I just used the hanger I'd had this little stitchery on, and I laid the stitchery in my sewing corner. Well, today in an effort to tidy things up a bit, I decided to do something with this stitchery. I found a little hanger I had, but using it meant I had to add a sleeve to the back of the stitchery. I started digging through my fabric and lo and behold I found a piece of the fabric I had used for the backing and binding on this one. So a sleeve was made and attached and now it's hanging in the spare room.

  8. Very cute stitchery Terry, looks great hanging on that hanger! I think your tractors are darling, but I'd be worried about laundering - I have some textile medium that I got at Joann's, that I brush on after using pencils, especially watercolour pencils. With crayons, you just have to heat set. Really cute idea!

  13. Love those placemats. Thanks for the link. These would make nice gifts for my great grandson. I know what you mean about not being able to find anything after you clean. It took me over an hour yesterday to find a quilt top after I cleaned. Gads.

  15. What happens when you tidy up??? Well, company comes! Like me, I'll be over for supper!!! And if you were tidy in the guest room too, I just might be talked into a little sleep over!!! HA!

    My first thought on your tractor place mats was to heat set it too. Pretty cute!
