A gorgeous exchange piece and a couple finishes..

Words cannot describe how beautiful this pillow from Berit is~~~ I was lucky enough to be her exchange partner in the Autumn Exchange and my package arrived today~~~ This gorgeous double sided pillow is a Homespun Elegance design called "Joyful Autumn". The most beautiful hand dyed silk ribbon attaches at the top and sides and the fabrication is beyond words! Thank you SO MUCH Berit for making this for me...The Quaker theme is perfect as is the colorways you chose!!!! It is hanging on my cupboard door as we speak!!


( Front) 30 ct WDW Straw linen
WDW Red Rocks, Terra Cotta, Indian Summer
CC Almost Auburn
(Back) 40ct Barn Owl linen
Love the personalization on tbis side
Additionally, last night I finished a couple little pieces that were waiting for me patiently....Here is the flower portion of "A Stitcher's Companion" as found in Blackbird Designs book called Honeysuckle Manor.... I attached it to a small Lang box I had on hand and used some prim trims
to make it into a pin cushion...
GAST Shutter Green



Lastly, I put together another pinkeep last night.....It a pattern that Brenda of "With Thy Needle and Thread" had put out as a freebie.....I experimented with my Sulky thread in the pumpkin...Different look for me, but I thought it all came together... Coincidentally my buddy Karen had posted yesterday that she had made this same pattern and her finish is stunning!!! Go check it out here...

Hoping everyone has a great Tuesday evening~I need to get in the kitchen!!~~

What a gorgeous gift, lucky you!!

Lovely pinkeep Faye, you did such a good job on it! I love that pattern too!

Berit said...

Faye, I'm SO thrilled you liked it (your praise of my finishing in particular makes me blush as I know where the faults are!;)--and your pics are beautiful; I LOVE where you hung it up. :D I also like the back; I may even make one for me sometime! I'm thinking of making my first "big quaker" (whenever that is) in that thread/fiber combo.

I also love your finishes here~ That green is to die for! :D And, I espy a finish of Fox & Grapes--I've been batty for that pattern since I first saw Edgar's finish; This may be the fall I finally stitch it! :D I don't know that once will be enough, though... ;)
