~ Finishes and a special story~
.... School has started back and I have to say I'm absolutely in love with my new batch of little First Grade darlings!! They come to me wide eyed and ready to learn.... It's going to be a fantastic year!!!!
I would like to share a few recent finishes with you... You guys pick some of the nicest and prettiest designs to stitch.... I love seeing each envelope arrive! Thanks again to all who allow me to finish your goodies..... Here are a few~
Threadwork Primitives~ Kringles Crow
Mosey n Me~ ?
....with tiny details....
Country Cottage~ 2012 ornament Gingerbread Man~
12 x 15" Project bag~ Plum Street Sampler freebie.. A Patriots Sampler...
Threadwork Primitives~ Happy 4th~
This sweet lady touched my heart with her finishing request.... You see, she lost her daughter 3 years ago.... Her adult daughter... Her adult daughter who collected angels.... So, this wonderful and very thoughtful mom, has stitched a rememberance angel each of the three years in honor of her daughter... This year she asked I finish the ornament for her... Her only request was to make it special... I love how this mom still cherishes the memories of her daughter... And, I bet she always will....
Little House Needleworks~ Hallelujah~ Three angels.......how perfect~
On the back of the ornament, her name is delicately stitched.... I used cherished hand tatted lace from my very dear friend... Who is in heaven also smiling down~
Isn't that the sweetest story??
As August winds down and September is on the horizon, I get excited just thinking about my long awaited trip to Norforgotten Farms " A Gathering of Primitive Friends Show"... Sept 20th at Notforgotten Farm in Amherst VA... I've never attended, but have really wanted to.... This is the year!!!! Here is the link for more info about this great event~
Signing out for now..... Enjoy the rest of the week!!!
