Baby....It's cold outside...!

Good chilly Thursday morning!!!
 
That title says it all!.....It IS cold here in the Carolinas this early morn.....I just had to show you my latest finish..... With my craftroom all a buzz, I had to get a little something sewn up for myself and here are the results...adorning my breakfast table....
 
Heartstring Samplery
Baby...It's cold outside!...
supplies as specified by designer~one over two~
 

My dear friend, Lynn Stansfield has the most wonderful fabrics and I LOVE them...Actually I hoard them...But, I pulled out a few to use on this piece....The darker brown and faded red calico are from her....Just MADE for this piece it seems....Your fabrics lended the perfect touch Lynn!!!
 
This table scarf is 38 inches long....enough to make a statement....

With the snowy scene in the stitch, I couldn't resist using some of my vintage cotton lace as an accent..It helps accent the fluffy white snow falling on the roof of the houses....
 
 
Make this a wonderful day......
brrrrr......  Baby, it IS cold outside!...........
 
Peace,
 
Faye

Chelle said...

Beautiful, Faye!

I have several pieces that need finishing and I am afraid I am going to ruin them. Maybe I need to send them along to you for finishing.

You should post up your finishing info again. (Or maybe it's on your site and I just don't know where to look!)

Hugs,
Chelle

What a great finish for that piece! Beautifully done - and good to see something for yourself! :-)

It would surely feel right at home in this office! I'm waiting for snow to start falling from the a/c vent right above my head (and my little space heater is on).
