Praire Schooler Summer and Winter

I finished the Prairie Schooler season series published by Just Cross stitch magazine. I just finished Summer and Winter and I have finished the other two last month.



I have not decided about the finishing part yet. I have bought Judy Odell's "the box book", and I may finish them as a box.

Those are so cute! A box would be great fro them!

I haven't seen that book so I might have to seek it out as I'm quite new to smaller projects and have't got a lot of ideas/experience with finishing them yet.

Thanks for the tip.

I've never made a mattress pincushion before, will have to investigate how to do that. Would love to start working on a lot of little things soon. I have so missed my stitching now that I am working on this redecorating. But I will get back to it on the weekends now -- see what I can manage to get done then. Hope you will post pictures of your little mattress pincushions when you get them completed. I'm curious how you get the little edge done around the sides - if you add fabric, or if you just fold the piece to make the sides. Since I've never made one I really haven't a clue about how to do this . And you are always telling me that you aren't good at finishing -- I think you're doing beautifully!
