A few WIP and a little finish~~~

I was thinking if I posted a couple of my WIP's it would inspire me to go ahead and put some attention to them and finish them....or at least put a dent in them~~~ So, here you go....

I LOVE prim designs and this one by Pineberry Lane is no exception.... I had some fabric called "Days Gone By" and thought it had the perfect look!

And, here is my progress on "Hare's Christmas" by Plum Street Samplers...I love the GAST shades of Baby Spinach and Cornhusk together.....I guess I am about 1/3 into this piece....

And, here is a funny looking picture of the block of Shores of Hawk Run Hollow I am currently working on.......

And a look at the whole piece so far......Not quite half done on this one..........Gotta get back to this one....Thank you Edgar for inspiring me to pull it back out~




And, I did have a finish this week....I had across this pattern by The Gentle Art called BerryThief..Although it is one I had done many years ago for a friend, I decided it needed to be done once more~~Since it has a bird in it, I KNEW I had to do it..........Besides, some of my favorite GAST threads are in this one.... Dried Thyme, Black Crow, Cherry Bark, Tarnished Gold and Autumn Leaves.........I forgot to take a snap of the prim buttons I used on the back to attach the ties.....

So, there you have it....Make it a great day everybody!!! Our last official day of summer!

They are all coming along nicely. I stitched the Pineberry Lane one last year and you will love it when it's finished. I love Days Gone By too and always have it in my stash.

Faye, I have been admiring all of your fall goodies on your blog over the last few days!!! I LOVE that fall tree!!!!!! I need one of those; guess I had better stitch lightning fast huh??? It's so pretty. Love the WIP's, keep going on them......they are looking great!

Lois said...

What great WIP's! I stitched the Pineberry Lane one for last Christmas and never finish-finished it. Seeing you working on it reminds me how much I liked it so maybe this will make me actually get busy on it!

Hey there Faye,
I think some of us use this approach to getting our needlework pieces done (posting WIPs on our blogs). I find it to be a useful tool.
And as always your pieces are beautiful.
Hugs.
Jackie.

Great stitching and finishing, too! Wish those 90s would go away with summer! Four weeks -- yeah!!

I heard a bird chirping outside my window just when I saw your Berry Thief - it seemed so appropriate - love the design! It's fun to see all that you have going on.

Siobhan said...

Berry Thief is adorable! Great finish, especially for this time of year. :) Love your other WIPs, too. Isn't Days Gone By such a fun fabric? I love it. Love your Shores, too!

MyLifesAStitch said...

Great WIPs, Faye!! Esp. love that Pineberry Lane one!! I love the primitive looking Christmas things - excuse me while I go check out that designer. :)

Shores is beautiful, too! It's one of my "before I die, I must stitch this" patterns.

Have a great weekend!!
