A couple of finishes~

Seems like more and more prim patterns turn my head these days....I LOVE about anything Stacy Nash puts together and when I saw Pears & Strawberries Sampler I knew I had to stitch it~~ I have not decided if I will finish it as the Sewing Bag as she did, or if I will put it into a pillow.....Will have to see how things stike my fancy...

Stacy Nash Primitives

Pears & Strawberries Sampler Sewing Bag

DMC floss on Natural 32 ct linen


Also, I knew this pattern entitled St. Noel by With thy Needle & Thread, would be at the top of my to do list....So it too was done while I was at the beach during the week of rain..... Brenda Gervais has always been someone I looked up to with her creative finishing and this one was no exception...She made it into a "ditty pocket" and I hope to do the same....

St. Noel
DMC and Victorian Motto Burnt Red on 36 ct sand linen



Finally, here is my cute little blackbird that sweet Myra made for me...He's all perched up on the fall themed tree and I think him and the "Berry Theif" (hanging below him...) well, I think they must have a little somethin' somethin' going on.... I think they might actually be staring at one another..................ha!
So, until next time, here's hoping your day was wonderful and your tomorrow will be even better~~
Happy stitching everyone, Faye

Lovely stitching! Can't wait to see how you finish them. I hadn't seen, or hadn't noticed, the Stacy Nash design before...it is officialy now on my wish list! Isn't it funny how we pass by designs until we see someone else's finishes? I have spent more money than I care to think of that way. LOL! I love Brenda G's designs too...can't get enough of them! Congrats on the little giftie from Myra...how perfect!

Myra said...

Wonderful finishes Faye! That Christmas piece will look fabulous as a ditty pocket. LOL'ing at the blackbirds with a little sumthin', sumthin' going on.

Those finishes are really lovely. I am not a sampler person, but you really are pushing me into changing my thought process!! They are really lovely.

Your little birdies do look cute, but I might not turn the lights out on them - LOL!
