A Little Stitchery

On Tuesday the
Penmaker and I took a trip to Berlin in the heart of Amish country. It's about a 25 minute drive on back roads mostly through farm lands. We love it! of course, I just had to run into one of my favorite shops... Country Craft Cupboard. I purchased some wool to make something special for Valentines Day, and they gave me a FREE pattern. I'll post it when I get it completed. For now, I want to show you some of the snowmen ornaments I've made for our tree.

I did a bunch of these
cute little guys with green, dark red and red with black flecks backgrounds. CCC does a lot of their own hand-dying and I absolutely adore their wools. It's usually hard for the Penmaker to pull me out of the back room where all the bolts of wool and floss are. To make matters worse, they sell smaller pieces and little squares of these gorgeous goodies which make it even more tempting to spend all the money in your purse. You can even fill a plastic bag full of wool scraps and pay by the pound... which I've done many times! Perfect snippets to have on hand.

Oh... and the lower
level is filled with rubber stamps, primitive type frames and needlework books. Ah... a crafters dream!
Now, back to work!

I'm linking my snowmen to:

Thanks for the visit!
