Rebecca Robinson takes a bow....and a birthday!!...

Good morning everyone.....
Do you remember me saying 29 is "my" significant number??.... I finished Rebecca Robinson in the wee hours this morning .... March 29..... Sigh... She's simply grande...

Rebecca Robinson

I could not be more pleased.... I thought for the longest time that Rebecca may have been a city girl longing for the country..
image
But, I've decided she was a country girl...her love for nature is very prominent throughout...




You will find many birds, butterflies, fruits and flowers flourishing everywhere....




...enclosed entirely with the honeysuckle vine that she obviously loved the most...




My journey with Ms Rebecca has come full circle in three short months..... Soon she will be framed and hanging prominently on my walls for me to visit frequently....
I have SO enjoyed being a part of Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year.... Soon I will reveal what my next project will be.....
*******************************
Speaking of March 29, I'd like to wish our oldest son a Happy Birthday! 29 years ago he was born into this world.... Where have 29 years gone to??




We love you!!!!!




Have a fantastic day everyone...!!!

Rebecca Robinson's better half...

Hello friends......
I wanted to share my biggie project with everyone.....

....Rebecca Robinson Sampler....




....her right side is complete....




And, of corse, I am falling in love with many of the MANY motifs..




...aren't those pink feet too cute...???... Wonder what Rebecca was thinking.....




And from the looks of things, she loved color.....after all, she was but an 11 year old school girl....
I have hopes for this sampler to be a March finish.... Right now,I am just enjoying each and every motif.....
Hope your day is wonderful...

Lucky number giveaway....

Lets have a little fun...

Is everyone ready for a carolinastitcher giveaway????? I tell ya, I am humbled and amazed that I have over 900 followers.... When I began this journey in May 2009, I was reluctant to take the leap into the world of blogging.... Today, I cannot imagine my life without it... Friends, inspirational posts by so many if you and many a project are reflective of nearly four years of blogging...

Which brings me to this little giveaway... For me, 29 would be my lucky number.... Both of my children were born on the 29th of the month.. My mother was born on Nov 29, 1929... If you add all the digits of my birthday, they total 29.... Tell me what your lucky number is by leaving a comment on this post if you'd like to be considered in my giveaway for this.....




...its a small accessory size pouch, a fat qtr of Weeks 35 ct Cappacino linen and a few more goodies...




I had a little fun with this pouch adding some special hand embroidery.... And hand dyed rick rack...



I will be drawing a name at random on Sunday, March 17...

Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!!

Tulip House companion pieces...

...Greetings fellow stitchers....
What a glorious day this has been here in the Carolina's!!!! Milder temperatures.... Slowly signs of spring are popping up... Thank goodness... I'm tired of being cold!....
Last night I had the opportunity to attend preview night of the Spring Open House at Lonestar Mercantile in
FuquayVarina NC.... Not only was it pure prim eye candy, the warm smells filled the shop while friends gathered .... Such an enjoyable event....
I've had a design swirling in my head about a unique finish I wanted to introduce... I just needed time to get the thoughts out of my head into a hands on end product.... My previously stitched Tulip House Companion piece from Blackbird Designs " A Stitchers Journey Book" was a perfect fit for the 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 opening.....




...a pin pillow tray.... A distressed, painted and waxed frame with unique handles for a padded insert..... The under side is fully covered with felt....




I also finished the small accessory pillow to match.... I so enjoy using antique lace and old bone buttons as embellishments.....




..another view of the unique distressed handles...
I will be offering this as one of my finishes upon request... Please email me if you have a design approximately 3x5 in size that you want to be uniquely finished...It would be perfect finished as a pin pillow tray... ( my email is found in my Complete Profile...)
Here's hoping everyone has a fantastic Sunday!!! Don't forget to turn those clocks up by an hour.....
Smiles,
Faye

Rebecca Robinson progress and busy times....

Hello fellow stitchers and friends!!!! Everyone is busy this time of year it seems..... I am seeing gorgeous stitching on all the blogs....

I have made progress on my Scarlet Letter sampler Rebecca Robinson.....




It's hard to believe I only have 9 honeysuckle blossoms left in her incredible border.....



.And the urn on the left side is massive.... And will be beautiful...



*************************

Additionally, I have been finishing up a storm for fellow stitchers.... It is so refreshing for me to get stitched pieces from you guys, envision a creative end product and then create it.... From distressed boxes to diddle bags... Ornaments, pin pillows and stockings to taking an older piece apart and recreating it into something new and fresh..... Not everything has to be an ornament or pillow....

Here is a partial peak of a couple finishes done last week... I never know if the items are gifts so I won't reveal the fronts.... Just a small picture walk for you....


































Please contact me if I can help you with any of your finishing needs..

Make it a great Thursday!!!!
