A few weekend finishes..... For me!!!!


Happy Monday....... As promised, I wanted to share a few finishes I completed this weekend....... Previous posts show my stitched finishes, but I wanted to completely finish them.... To enjoy.....




A Red Cottage now hangs on my table stand..... With the freebie stocking dangling as a compliment piece.....



Click any photo for the best view...







Paulette's freebie Valentine Stocking was an irresistibly quick stitch.... And easy sew....



I had the perfect antique bone button......



...and this hand tatted cotton lace was salvaged from a girls petticoat from long ago......



....the colors work perfectly together between the two pieces.....

I was also able to sew up the recently stitched Spectacles Case.....


...yes, that fabric we had talked about being the lining, was just the right match......



...I even liked it enough yo have part of it popping out the top....for a small cuff...




*******this week I plan on devoting my stitching time to Rebecca Robinson Sampler..... I will be constructing the main house..... Wish me luck!

Have a great week.....

Faye

Would you believe that's what I thought when you showed your Red House stitched finish, and it looks great. The quilting gives it such substance! And the darling stocking is JUST the right complement. Very nice spectacles case, too. Our favorite fab goes right along with this design, too, doesn't it? *;)

Hope you and Rebecca have a great stitching week!

WOW Faye - you are so creative with your finishing and how you paired up these two lovelies from Paulette together. I saw the things you did for Laurie and they are awesome - I like how you are incorporating the pieced fabric in with the stitching. really works with the stitched pieces. Good luck on Rebecca - Melody
