Freedom Annie

first time I have cross stitched on
osnaburg fabric
had to buy super magnified glasses
but I am enjoying something new
 this Annie is 18" tall
~
I don't know why her dress looks so bright 
at least on my computer it does
it is actually a dark royal blue

 I used a lot of my vintage items for her
her bodice is from a old doily
her buttons are vintage
and the trim on her loons is also from
an old napkin
 ~
I didn't cross stitch the entire pattern
just enough to make a heart
also added a tiny rusty start
~
she will be up on eBay
Sunday April 19
~
thanks for visiting
God bless
:)

Rose Bud Annie

seems I am fascinated with vintage hankies 
that have been in my factory for a few years
one of the reason I do not
throw much away
you just never know when the perfect
time to use it will come
~
this little Annie is only 11" tall
wearing a vintage hankie
with tiny red and pink rose buds
for her apron
~
she is perfect for Mother's Day
 ~
 her little 2" heart was made
from a tiny piece of the hankie
and decorated with pearls and white trim
~
also the hem of her sleeves are 
from the remaining edge of the hankie
~
 ~
she will be up on eBay
Sunday evening, April 12
~
~
thanks for visiting again
wishing all a wonderful week ahead
~
"saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory,
and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor,
and power, and might, be
unto our God for ever and ever. Amen."
Revelation 7:12

God bless you my friends

"Seek God while he's here to be found,
pray to him while he's close at hand.
Let the wicked abandon their way of life
and the evil their way of thinking.
Let them come back to God, who is merciful,
come back to God, who is lavish with forgiveness."

Isaiah 55:6-7 ~ The Message

thankful for all who visit
