Rustic Homestead...

The wind is blowing and
it has been raining for days.
Perfect weather to be inside stitching.

A simple rustic homestead

Wool Applique Needlekeeper

A few small snippets of wool fabric...
I love the idea of making "something from nothing".

Rustic Homestead Needlekeepers

and what lies before us
are tiny matters compared to
what lies within us."

  1. I love your needle keepers and they are just so cute. Raining for days? It sounds nice. We had some rain. So I am loving being indoors stitching.
    I love your quote Rose.
    I hope you have a lovely Sunday.

  2. Rose I absolutely love those Rustic Homestead Needlekeepers! I need to try the beadwork someday! It must take quite a steady hand.
    The sun is out today... and we have 46 for a temp. Not that great but it's a vast improvement from a few days ago!

  4. Make this kit available FIRST!!! These are wonderful!! You were right...the beaded edge was super easy so I'm ready to start stacking up my needle books!! Finished up an autumn wool runner today, the beginner sheep is in my hoop ready to punch & a x-stitch sampler is coming along. I did put my needle down long enough to put away all the snowman decorations but I'll drag out the spring things another day. Headed for a cup of tea & my needle punch.....I'm so bad!!!
