Sweet finishes~

....Happy Monday friends....!

....So many of you, like myself, love the beautiful designs by With thy Needle & Thread... Brenda Gervais has a way of capturing softness and simplicity in cross stitch.... I enjoy taking those designs and creating a complimentary finish that keeps in the theme.... Here are three pieces that I finished for you using antique laces, hand dyed velvets, old buttons & simple handeworke~ Enjoy!

Be My Valentine
....found in the Be my Valentine booklet....
