3 MORE FINISHES




I had finished out three more items today. Frog Pillow is a Lizzie Kate chart. The Candy Heart is a chart from the magazine Cross Stitch & Needlecraft's from years back. This was stitched as a Round Robin Project. It went from stitcher to stitcher, they picked out 4 pieces of candy each to stitch. I finished the ones left. The striped Bunny, I can't remember who was the designer. It was a freebie chart. The Ric-Rack was my grandmothers. She added the tatting to it. I do have a picture by Carriage House Samplers I framed today. It is just a little picture. I will show it tomorrow. I had to laugh today when I was stitching the piping around the pillows. I told Raeanne I could not see the thread to tie a knot or thread the needle, and of course, she asked where my glasses were? I said that is not the problem... The thread is invisible -clear thread. Maybe... I need to stick to thread I can see.....That is all today. Till Tomorrow......

Fabulous finishes! I love all of them. I'd forgotten all about that box of chocolate pattern. I have that one tucked away somewhere. I used to collect all those BH&G books.

Brigitte said...

Love your finishes. I have a couple of cross stitch projects that really need to be finished. Also have a few to start. I have been distracted by the block of the month quilts I am working on. That candy heart is amazing.
