Miss Mary Mac's Sew & Sew Sewing Roll

It's a rainy day here in TN, thunderstorms all night.  The echoing thunder kept me awake most of the night.  I love a good storm, as long as there are no tornado warnings.  It has gotten a little brighter outside, and I did manage to get pictures of the newest sewing roll and here it is.  Miss Mary Mac's Sew & Sew Sewing Roll, stitched on 40 ct. Examplar from Lakeside Linens with Crescent Colours, Weeks and DMC.  I have the pattern listed at my Etsy shop.
I tea dyed the backing fabric and I love how it changed the look of the fabric completely.  Now it's all I can do not to dump all of my bright bits of cotton prints into the tea bath to see how they come out. 
The Miss Mary Mac series is a group of prim designs that aren't too primitive.  You can certainly make your pieces more prim by giving them the coffee grounds treatment or a nice tea bath.  Or, as my son suggested, leave them on the driveway on a rainy day.  :)  Today would be just perfect.  Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day!
