A Fully Finished Design & More Stitching

Happy Memorial Day:  It is a long weekend for some who are working, for some its just a normal weekend.

I have a fully finished design it is a Betsy Morgan design Helping Hands Designs  I took the class last year in Madison Wisc.
I love this finish

I am so happy this is finished, I do not do good at finishing but I have to bang my own drum, this turned out perfect for me,  do you see the wax roll by the mini ruler? that was made by rolling the wax and adding two flat buttons on each end

This is the inside of the needlebook, I did add the ribbon for the closer, it did not require one, I like the ribbon on the book

Drawn Thread 

This is a  design from Drawn Thread  I stitched this way back in 1/8/14, I sure am slow at finishing, I hope to get all my finished stitching constructed or framed soon

This is a Lizzie Kate which was a gift to me, I love this Verse, I am gifting this to the Priest at our Church, he is leaving us next month

I need to frame it, I want to have it professionally  framed as soon as Joann's can take me, soon I hope

This is the pin pillow which i will save for myself, I just need to add the beads on the strawberry's 

I am excited to show you what I won over at Donna's blog site,
Stop on over and see what Donna is up to, I hope to start stitching this one this week, i want to make two for the candle holders for Christmas on one of my tables

It is very gloomy today, cloudy and rainy, it is a good day to do some stitching and finishing., I plan on starting the fully finished on the Blue Ribbon Design with the beautiful Peacock set I stitched.
I hope you all are soon back to normal in your states.
Have a beautiful weekend

Hello Dear Friends

I want to thank everyone for your comments on my last post, I have been busy and will get thank-you out to you soon.
I have been busy stitching and having problems posting photos, lets try again.
I get email updates from Sassy Jacks, I was so pleased to se the beautiful free sampler designs for instant download, please visit  her site.
This is the Sampler I downloaded, it is called Jesus Wept, it is beautiful, so give Sassy Jacks a visit.

I have also two finish's  to share, I just need to construct them, they are both Scattered Seed Samplers.

This is the Out On A Limb Little Wren Pinkeep, the fabric is so pretty, Edinburgh Vintage Country Mocha 36 count

 So sorry about the wrinkles, I will be constructing this one tomorrow hopefully.

This is Set Free Pinkeep, they are both a little larger then ones I would use for pinkeeps but will use as small pillows, I exchanged the initials  for the bird cage charm, many of my relatives want some of my stitched things after I leave this world.

 I totally love this designer, she has so many beautiful Samplers and other items to choose from.

 I had received this Shepherd Bush fob pattern from a dear friend Susan, I have to buy some patriotic scissors to put it on.

This is hopefully my next project after I order the fabric, I had received this pattern from the stash relocation pile at Guild Retreat many years ago, I love the colors, and want one for my display case.

Today Our state has lifted most of the restrictions and stores will be opening by Monday, yahoo I need needles for my sewing machine and many other items.
Stay healthy
