A finished finish...Something a little different.....

Well, I have a little something to show you from my worktable today.... I know it is spring, but I had this finish swirling in my head and thought I'd set it free~~filled with soothing autumnal colors....



Autumn on Marigold Lane
Pineberry Lane
36 ct coffee stained linen
specified overdyed thread

Now, don't get me wrong....I love the primitive black rustic frame the designer showcases this piece in, but I wanted to make good use of the little quilt stand  (look here...) I recently bought from Auntie Ju's while attending a quilt show.... I also wanted to try my hand at incorporating cross stitching and wool pennies with homespun fabric.. I thought those 3 would be a winning combination ~~~

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

My next venture will involve the first kit that the Country Sampler's Girl Club is offering.... It is part of the 2012 Prim Sisters....Three talented designers have joined up in creating 6 designs throughout 2012....When I saw that Pineberry Lane was opening the season up with a design, I jumped on in with both feet....Now, mind you, I pledged to myself to have self control in 2012 with purchases....But, I just HAD to treat myself when I saw that Notforgotten Farm's and Primitive Betty's were also designing for the Prim Sisters.....

Here is what kit #1 looks like.....It is just SO sweet.....!
After stitching, you sew together using the 2 very nice fabrics, that come in the kit, to make a pocket on the back....I know I am really going to enjoy this Prim Sisters treat.....
 
Well......Hope everyone is enjoying their week....Soon, it will be Easter....Yay!!
 
Many blessings....
 
Faye

Hi!
I love the how you finished the Pineberry Lane piece with the pennies.
I already finished The Prim Sisters hanging pocket, I was thrilled with it. You will have lots of fun

samplerlover said...

Oh this is lovely. The pennies work so well with it. I like Pineberry Lane's pieces as well.

Dianne said...

You are so clever. I love the pennies....but even more......I love the different directions of the alphabet and houses that seem "grounded" with your fabric and pennies. Sooooo clever. Please post a photo of the quilt stand with your creation......is the stand very big?

Your finish is going to look great on your quilt stand. And you must post a picture of it when you put the two together. I think that I'm going to be missing some great things with that club. I love the first kit already!
