A Few Finish's Finally

Greetings my dear friends, I am sitting here and wondering if I should turn on the furnace, it was so cold last night I was shivering, it has been chilly here, something I do not like to do.

I have been busy doing finishing on some of my stitched items, I made a promise to not start a new stitch design until I finished four item's so here they are.

This is a Blackbird Designs Lady Liberty which I stitched early this summer, they may look a little wonky, only because I use crushed walnuts for stuffing which I love.

                                                     Next is Hats Off To Uncle Sam

I stitched this one this summer, I have a large collection of Pin Cushions
I received this next one from the stash relocation pile from the Minnesota Needlework Guild last year, I think it is a class project, not sure.
Again it is another Blackbird Designs kit, I love the color of the fabric.
I just need to iron them better.
Well I am going to start working on another kit from Scattered Seed Samplers, I do not have a photo just yet but will show you the kit photo soon.
I hope all our friends in Texas are finally getting back to their homes and getting their lives back, you are still in my prayers daily.
I hope the fires in Manitoba are out please pray for Peace and all who are suffering.

Nice work! I can't see it but I know what you mean about the walnut shells. They're sort of like my thighs and move about depending on my position.

Congrats on the beautiful finishes Catherine.


Pamela said...

Very nice finishes! I'm much better at starting projects than finishing. It's good to see someone who is good at finishing too!

Marilyn said...

What beautiful finished! You do beautiful work.

I hope you are a bit warmer today or maybe it is time to break out a throw or two to use while you are stitching.

Beautiful finishes, Catherine! The weather rarely works as per our wish, isn't it ? :)

Oh my, are these finishes beautiful. Absolutely lovely the drums that you made. And these little stockings are so sweet. I have so many charts by Blackbird Designs and there are many stocking charts among them. I should stitch some of them one of these days.

Gorgeous finished projects. The pin drums are great but I adore the little stockings. They are so sweet.
