....gift giving....

....Greetings all!..... Hope this finds you warm and snuggly...just a few more days until 2013....

I wanted to share a few photos of some stitchy gifts, both given, and received this holiday season.....

For my dear sweet friend Marylin, of France, I wanted to stitch and sew her something... So, of course, I combined the idea and made her a table scarf...



(Please click on any photo for a better view...)


And an ornament using the snippets left from the table runner fabrics....



...and, I wanted her to know I made an exact replica to keep for myself.... I will always call it my Marylin ornament...



Of course, I squealed with delight when a package for me arrived from France..... Can you see why???



I was spoiled in a most fantastic way!!!! Chocolates, French wine and sweet bread....heavenly soap, toffee candy and a nice sized hoop..... And Sajou scissors.... Marylin really knows how to speak to my heart!!!






Thanks so very, very much dear Marylin!!! The wine WAS good, the chocolates ARE good and the hoop with scissors WILL be put to very good use!!!!!

Additionally, Michelle CA showered me with a very unexpected gift of seasonal colors and scents.... Feast your eyes...



When I opened the box, smells of vanilla and freshly baking muffins filled my room....she had found many vintage bias tape, ribbons and trims for me...overdye flosses, fat quarters and linen to stitch..... Wow!! Michelle, you know me all too well! Thanks again dear friend....


And since my mind has been focused on stitching incorporated into sewing..... Here is a quick glimpse of some of the gifts I made for others.....

































If you've hung in with me this long, I thank you.....I have had a few if you to email me about my finishing service..... I welcome you to dig through those boxes and drawers, find those older stitched pieces and send them on to me! Email if you'd like details.... I would love to help you fill baskets and wooden bowls of stitchies for this upcoming year!!!

Many blessings to all if you,

Faye

Finishes..... For me!!!

Greetings everyone!!!!

I'd like to offer a picture walk of a few stitches I sewed up this past week...... Goodies I will be adding to my collection...a few will be neighbors gifts..... These are designs I stitched in October....many are from the Just Cross Stitch ornament issue...other than the pencil thin Carriage House Samplings stockings.... Thank you to the stitching angel who gifted my that chart....




I love using vintage buttons.....



















...this fabric's white tonal print seemed to draw out the white in the cross stitch...











.....homespuns with hemp rick rack....





....simple added " x's" were a nostalgic touch...





...Marly's freebie....I just chose to stitch a portion of it.......




I hope everyone is readying for the big day......there sure does seem to be a lot if buzzzzzz in the air...

Peace and blessings......

Faye

And,Myrasure did have perfect timing in showering me with a little sweetness yesterday!!!!



Isn't this darling ornament just the cutest???? Made by her talented hands.....I simply adore it!!!! Many thanks, my friend....



I've been so very busy in the craft room....my last Christmas finishing order started out like this about three weeks ago...

A timely act of kindness....

Last week I devoted time to stitching Red Reindeer by Birds of a Feather.... I wanted something samplerish seasonal for my wrought iron stand in my craft room... I knew it would involve a little blind stitching the binding, once sewn up... So, when I was surprised to receive this gift in fridays mail from sweet Tamami, I knew my finishing job would move along nicely...
Feast your eyes...




It is one of her sweet bags with a set of handmade clips....perfect for using when stitching your bindings....







.



So, I went right to business.....




Resulting in this...




It hides my Keurig machine perfectly....








I loved this stitch.... The Heritage linen by Picture this Plus was perfect... See the mottling from this angle??
I hope everyone as a fantastic week..... Be safe!!
