...Friday finishes.....

I had a teacher workday today WITHOUT a workshop to attend...YEAH!~~so, I used my time to finish a couple small gifties....

This week after returning from the retreat, I set my mind to make up a couple freebie patterns I have been holding on to...They are by Martine and very delicate and french.... the first is called "en rose et gris" and was done using DMC 224 and 644 on some white 32 ct linen....I even had a fabric I thought was a good match....

Here is the "before" finishing photo.....
And, the "after" finishing photo...
I also had wanted to make this small rose pattern by Martine called "Carre aux roses"... Using DMC 4180....
So, here is its "before" finishing photo....

And, the "after" photo.....The little scissors were a perfect match so I made it into a fob...

Of course, I had to use a little HOPE charm on the back to match the Breast Cancer Awareness fabric...... My local quilt shop, Linderella's Quilts has been a great source for my fabrics lately... I thought it all was a perfect match...
I have talked with my friend Barbara since her surgery Tuesday and she is awaiting the pathology report... She said the surgery went fine and she wanted to pass along her words of appreciation for all the kind comments you posted about your prayers for her... She said she was so grateful to know stitchers were praying for her and that she is very hopeful that her breast cancer is in its early stages. Thanks again everyone for helping me lift the spirits of my friend and I know you will continue to send good thoughts her way...
Until next time............Happy stitching everyone, Faye
