Whisk Broom and Hilda

Wow, I actually finished it in time for Halloween, Sandy's and my favorite time of year.  Happily, she was pleased with it too and this makes my day.

I was looking for an "easy peasy" project.  This cute 'Broom Hilda' by Brenda Gervais, whisk-Broom band filled the bill.

LUV it ... Papa was kind to relinquish his lovingly used broom for me and this sweet little cross-stitched design.

I decided to fringe the edges for my cute Hilda and then distressed the band as can be seen on the very tip/ends of the fringe...

Thanks for your visit,

Peace to all,

I have been collecting my fair share of gourds 
over the past few years.
Having seen some made into bird houses 
I decided to give it a whirl and 
this is what I came up with ...

 It is being displayed above our 
'Shores' name plaque 
on our small front porch and main entry.

Think I will be toying with more of these 
primitive & cute gourd garlands.
For now, I need a break and change of pace with my X-stitching.

Have FUN and enjoy the day.

Peace to all,
