small project

this year is meant for the smalls and all the pieces i have started and not finished
i know we all have a ton of those
and since my health is not where it should be i am going to listen to my body and let it heal.
when the needle and thread calls me i will work on all those projects push aside, months and years ago.
i would be so happy to know i at least finished a few during these exhausting times.
i still have Mary Wigham to finish
The Truth Sampler from many many years ago
Judy O'dell's online class the Lady's Chest
and the Toy Chest, both are stitched just need to be assembled.

this year as every year Northwest Sampler Guild has a challenge that has to be completed by the annual tea in February. This year the theme is TEA! which means you can stitch anything, any size with a Tea related theme.
i picked something extremely simple a bookmarker. I knew i wouldn't have the energy to complete a whole sampler or a big project but also because Tea is not something i would normally design something around. but i am happy it is done it was quick and fun.
here is the front of the bookmarker
i weaved a ribbon thru the bottom and stitched a handful of different stitches on top.
who doesn't love a good book and a cup of tea.

and the back is just the word tea and a little cup.
the ribbon i stitched on was folded in half and stitched together.
so easy and i know i will find it holding that place in a great book.

i hope you have time for a good book, a cup of tea plus a simple project to keep your hands active.
