Many finishes to share....Brrrrr!

Greetings friends!

After several Snow Days from school due to snow and heavy icing, this Southern gal is sick of winter! As so many of you having been saying for weeks, STOP already and give us a break.... I see what you mean..... Being ill equipped to handle such, folks in the Carolinas just have to pause, grin and bear it and let Mother Nature let up..... Hopefully the worst of the rough part of Winter is behind us..... Bring on Spring!!

I did want to share a few finishes this today......Many pieces are YOUR stitches, with my Carolinastitcher finishing vision.....it's my passion & gives me that total creative release when I create~~ Enjoy!


Folk Tulip Needlework Station~Little Stitches Handwork Club by Notforgotten Farm.....


Isn't it pretty????


....my only change was to add blanket stitching to the top of the pocket opening.....


12" x 15" project bags remain popular....


As do many seasonal stitches....



Added handiwork......


....and, on the back.....


...I love attaching hand dyed chenille.....


Some folks send me 3 ornaments every couple months.... Come December, they're ready to go!!!!


...special touches....



....this little pillow made me want to see the sun and hear the waves crashing~

Hurrah by Pineberry Lane~ Ditty bags are special to so many of you....

This attachment was a real "find" for me...... I was only able to get a few...






So..... What do you think? I think there's a lot of very busy stitchers out there!!! Here's to busy hands, warm hearts and lots of window shopping as the new Market releases come out~
Peace~

Hearts abound~

Greetings friends & fellow stitchers.....

I always like to pull out a few of my heart stitches this time of year..... I finished a couple more this year for my own display~~


Marly, of Sampler & Santas, has an amazing collection of freebie designs on her blog... **found here**.... (You'll see a sub header where they can be found... ) Marly is an amazing talent whose simple designs are favorites of mine....
image
32 count light Exempler linen, coffee stained, DMC threads

image
My personal interpretation of the design included hand stitching along the seam... Subtle and complimentary to the rose, gray and green threads~

I ran across an older stitch of mine that had not been sewed up for display... Designer Brin par Brin..... **here**... Isn't it the cutest little purse??

image
36 count cream Edinborough using 815 DMC...

image
Rather than stitching my initial in the center frame, I attached a few of my favorite charms... I like the flexibility of being able to remove them in the future... Possibly replacing with an antique button or snippet of something precious....

Tracy Riffle, now retired designer, has always been a favorite of mine.... Her design, "My Full Heart", is one of my favs because it's heart shaped and sampler-ish....

Lastly, my latest sampler stitch was so well received on the Scarlett Letter Years FB page, I thought I'd share here as well....

Margaret Randolph 1826
Margaret Randolph 1826..... a Scarlett Letter Sampler~


Margaret Randolph 1826
Stitched on Antique White 40 count linen using specified silks; except for the turquoise..... I substituted Gloriana silk Caribbean Sea for added color depth and slight variation......

When I look at the sweet first grade girls in my classroom and think they are nearly the same age Margaret was when she stitched her sampler, I have to wonder how things might have been if handiwork were still part of their lives.... As it was with Margaret and her classmates.....

Its February and Super Bowl Sunday...... I'm planning on sewing for you, stitching for myself while being entertained by lots of sports on the television!!!!

Enjoy your day~
