March Madness.....

~~~Greetings friends!~~~

.... I've starting to see all kinds of cross stitching come into my craftroom for finishing.... But, as they say, "variety is the spice of life!".... I've said it before and I'll say it again, as a needlework finisher, I consider myself very lucky! I get to use my creativity by taking your pieces of stitched linen and turning them into decorative and serviceable items.... Take a look at some of the latest goodies that were created in the Carolina Stitcher craftroom~


Untitled
After taking the trip of a lifetime to Paris in 2014, this fellow stitcher stitched several French inspired designs.....



I used subtle embellishments to compliment her handiwork....


A sizable hand painted box to hold very special French momentos~ I combined various red and black paints to get this special red....


Hand made cording will usually "frame in" a stitched piece nicely when mounted on a box top.....


I will put a fabric covered padded bottom insert inside so to cushion any fragile items that are being stored.....


The pretty scissors in this design caught my eye.... I'm partial to monochrome stitches also.....


Spring themed pin pillows are always popular finishes.....


Aren't we all ready for Winter to be done?


Tiny yellow lace makes the daisies come to life~


Patriotic stitches are always fun to create....


Threadwork Primitives


Chessie & Me Designs....



Plum Street Samplers


Fully lined stockings.....with a special attached charm~


La-D-Da freebie....




Thanks to all of you who continue to buy my project bags and project sewing rolls....


12 x 15" will hold all your supplies for a good size project... Neat and tidy!




A matching project roll allows you to safely roll up your linen... Safe from spills, wrinkles or even your pet...❤️







Several of you send me 3 Fall or Christmas stitches every other month to finish... Your wooden display bowls will be overflowing with goodness come October~


I love stitching the Blanket stitch along the edges.....nothing flashy....


white Pumpkin.....


...antique bone buttons sewn on pleated green ticking on the back.....


Large seasonal pillows with piped edging....


Hard to believe it's mid-week already!! Keep your hearts happy & your hands busy stitching~

Always,

Faye

I totally love that box finish! It's wonderful to see the care you took in mixing just the right shade of paint and making the cushioned insert.
I love seeing your imagination at work and I wish I lived closer so that I might learn a thing or two from you.

Jeanne said...

Each and every one is a joy Faye. I don't always have time to stop and comment but I always sneak a look at your finishes when you post them. I'm trying to get back and be more active with blogging after a crazy year last year. Thanks for your continued inspiration to all of us! I'm attending the PSS retreat and hope to meet you there as I see you're coming to the vendor mall - yippee!!

What a parade of beauties, Faye!! I love them all, but you pretty pouches and those patriotic finishes are my favorites :)

Happy Spring to you!

Ana Roat said...

Funny how the 4th isn't my favorite holiday but I adore patriotic stitching...the daisy house is also darling and I love the project envelope with the alphabet. Lovely work that's for sure!
