Personal collection of finishes....

Greetings all this chilly Sunday....

 

I've had a chance to put a little attention to finishing a few of my own stitched pieces.... Here are a couple today....

eSub~Rosa design.... "Merry" ....... Stitched on stained 36 count linen using specified overdyes threads .... I stained my linen before stitching this time....

 

I edged the design with a strip of fabric cut on the bias then hand stitched for a prim look...

I especially love the unique bell in the center... Sub Rosa designs are special to me.... Simple designs that are fairly quick stitches... Plus since they are purchased on her Etsy, they are instant downloads with no wait time.....

 

I also finished a sweet stitch that was actually gifted to me earlier ..... (Yes, often my personal finishing work is the last to be completed .... But that's ok...) A free hand stitch that Ann created .... I made it into a small tuck pillow and I'm calling it Merry Christmas Ann.....

Isn't it sweet and simple? I used Victorian Motto Sampler hand dyed Rick-rack along the edges....

 

A time worn look that's perfectly primitive~

 

 

More to come folks.....

Faye

I'm so glad you have time to stitch a few things for yourself, Faye, along with teaching the little ones and finishing so many beautiful items for other stitchers! Do you ever sleep? I just love these and will be copying your bias strip at some point--it looks so nice and classy :)

I wish you and your family a lovely Christmas Day and all the best in the coming New Year! Here's to another year of great new charts, fabrics, and threads--and the time to stitch!
