Layers......

Greetings this wonderful Sunday evening.....
~~~Veterans Day Eve~~~
 
Living very near Ft Bragg Army base, and having many children in  my classroom whose dads or moms or both dads and moms in the  military, we are almost always in an "honoring" frame of mind...Whether its the extra hug a child needs because its confusing to try to understand why dad is gone so long.....Or, knowing mom is on the phone constantly comforting a fellow Army wife who is enduring a hard time.... Or, those fantastic moments when they come to school to let everyone know that "Mom is home from her deployment and she's getting to stay two whole months"!!!...
 
Like I say, my community is deeply entrenched in honoring and supporting our military families...
Families of past heroes, those who are currently serving and those who have fought and now have daily struggles....
 
Yes, tomorrow is Veterans Day...
~~~Honor tomorrow and always~~~
 
**********
 
I would love to share many of my customers finishes, but tonight I'd rather highlight what I like to do best when creating finishes.....layers... I love layering  fabrics, buttons, laces....whatever!

So, I will let you have a picture walk of a few creations I have made of late...
 
..bells with twine...
 
 
...bells with wool felt and custom cording...
 
...vintage buttons with lace....
 
...buttons with the right theme in mind...
 
...antique buttons with cotton lace and hand made pins...
 
..layered buttons...yes! I love buttons as embellishments...
 
...layers....and more layers....
 
...wool felt with chenille...with more wool felt...hand stitched...
 
...ahhh, chenilles....
 
...co-ordinating piping...just the right touch....
 
...lined and cuffed diddie bags....layers....
 
Get the picture?.... I just had to share peeks of some of the finishing I have been doing for my fellow stitchers...you guys...out there in blog world.... YOUR fantastic stitches that I have been able to lend my creativity to.....
 
with  just a few more weeks until Christmas, I would be happy to help any of you guys with your finishes....just drop me a line....my cut-off date be Nov 21 with a ship date of Dec 14 or earlier...With that being said, April~Margaret~Tanya, your orders are on my sewing table for this week...
 
I haven't forgotton about  my "Giving Back Giveaway"...
I will be announcing more about it this week~~~~
 
Hoping everyone has a fantastic week.....
 
Blessings,
 
Faye

Loving the layers, the buttons, the artistic photos, and the beautiful work you do. I'm probably not going to make the cut-off for my finish, so I will have to do it myself (not nearly as nice as having you do it), but next year, I'm sending you my ornaments to finish--you do it so beautifully, and I would much rather just keep stitching away.
