that's what friends do....

I have been helping my friend adjust to being home unable to walk or move much.  Her pain level has finally been smoothed out with the help of a timer. Her surgery on those broken bones went well.  So when her daughter is working, I try to be there for her.  So, I have been doing some stitching. Will get more finished up, and keep you up to date.  I have started two projects, and one was a complete disaster!!!  I thought I had matched two parts of a chart, only to find out they didn't match!!  If I hadn't been ill, I would have figured it out right away.  It was the center Santa from the 9 Santa Sampler kit.  I will just start over since I had so little done on the right part.
Here is one of my little "Just Nan" that I had forgotten about, and never finished.  I found the perfect fabric, and it is now all finished.  I just love those smalls!  The Running Rabbit was started, then I decided to dye the fabric.  Luckily, it turned out well.  My Happy Bluebird was almost finished...I didn't notice that I had forgotten a few stitches.  I found perfect fabric for the backing, so will be making them into little pillows.  I also did a freebie Christmas candy cane from the Primitive Hare.  It turned out great!!  I still have to make it into an ornament.  So here are the photos.

That's all for today, I hope to get more projects stitched over this weekend!!  Happy stitching! Kathy


  1. You are a good friend! Hope your friend feels much better very soon...

    Lovely projects--especially the little birdies. I plan on stitching that one, too. Who can resist those little cuties?!

  2. Such nice little projects. All of them are so beautifully stitched. Where are the little cardinals from? I'd love to stitch them as well, they are so sweet. Great finishing on the little pillow with the piped edge. I have never tried such a finishing but should try it out one day, because it looks really good.

  3. I hope your friend is feeling much better soon.

    Your ornament finish is so pretty. Love your WIPs.

  4. I hope your friend is doing better. Beautiful stitches!
