Second post today....fallish finishes!!


A while back I posted that I had stitched this baby up both the Christmasy way, as designed, and a fall themed version I came up with....Well, here is the fall version finished up....a little pillow to tuck in my tree...And, since Blackbird Designs lend themselves to that time worned look, I added a piece of lace and an old button...

And, I came up with a finish for the new freebie design by Sandra Sullivan...I have noticed several people stitched this piece, as found on her blog "Plain and Fancy Merchant", and I decided to keep things on the prim side and not go overboard with the finishing... A simple button with a scrap of ribbonand some twine.....

I loved them both! I have Boo all ready to start stitching. I am going to do my on Hand dyed purple with Black silk. We will see how that turns out!! LOL I did the BBD last year but forgot about it and never made it into anything. I need to get it out and finish.

Hey, girlfriend! You are just SO productive! I stitched that Boo yesterday during the ballgames! 'Course mine will not be finished quite so quickly! It's good to know that you had some from a while back now being finished (sunflower). Doesn't matter if they have to wait a little while - they're still lovely!!

Bertie said...

Love your lace trimming on the BBD, gives it straightaway a much different look!
The boo is lovely too :))
