Today's picture walk.....

Greetings all!!! It's a glorious Saturday morning here in the Carolina's~

I wanted to share a few finishes that have left my craftroom headed back to many of my customers for them to enjoy~ So many of you have had busy stitching hands these winter months~

Little Stitches Handwork Club offered by Notforgotten Farm

 

 

 

Moss Creek Designs~ Oval Shaker Box & collection

 

 

 

 

 

Primitive Hare Christmas Bunny as seen in the 2015 Christmas issue of PunchNeedle and Primitive Stitcher Magazine

 

 

 

 

Notforgotten Farm

 

Pineberry Lane~ This is my work~

 

Mounted on an antique spool cabinet....

 

We can only imagine how many spools of thread stayed in this antique box over the years... This treasure was given to my customer by a dear friend who knew she would enjoy it's heritage... Of course, I left every speck of dust right where I found it.....

Edged with custom cording and a spool charm attached~

 

 

A roomy Carolina Stitcher project bag.... Note the tiny bees in the fabric pattern...I had an immediate connection with those bees and the phrase "Practice Patience"....

Shepherd's Bush~ Enjoy the Day~

 

 

And a few stitches and finishes I have completed for myself......

 

 

Blessings Be Thine by With thy Needle & Thread....

All specified supplies used, coffee stained Pom-Pom trim......

Rather than framing this stitch, I made a padded board so it could lean on my metal stand I purchased last year from Hobby Lobby.... ( I see photo below showing the versatility of this stand)

 

 

Fabric covered padded back...

 

Remember when I introduced this unique finish using the metal stand back in July 2015??

 

I have treated myself in purchasing some exclusive Norforgotten Farm fabric sold by Spoonflower, Inc. I love all of Loris fabric designs, and chose this fabric to make my first ever Carolina Stitcher project bag using her signature fabric....

 

Well.... That's it for today.... I will intice you by mentioning that I soon will be introducing a unique travel/storage bag for those of you who use scroll rods... It's a large "sleeping bag" to slide your project in~ More to come very soon!

Happy stitching everyone!!!!!!

Absolutely beautiful....

Beautiful work Faye! You are a creative genius! (I must admit, I probably would have dusted the spool cabinet. Your comment made me realize that I would have then felt guilty after dusting it! I'm glad you had the forethought to leave the dust! :-)

Oh my, your posts are better than going to a candy store; I am always delighted when I see one in my email! I love all of the pretty projects and finishes that you shared; it makes me want to get busy stitching (which I need to be). I love the display stand that you have - it looks so handy. Happy stitching and finishing...................

Faye, I always enjoy your feast for the eyes. I especially love the "practice patience." Those bees! Do you by chance know who the designer is on that one? Love it so much. Thanks for sharing.

woolwoman said...

I sure enjoyed seeing all the finishes. I simply don't know how you do it all Faye - stitching and finishing of your own pieces and your customers too. WOW - love your newest finish. Oh I'm already on that "sleeping bag" ! hope you have a good week - Mel

Iris said...

Faye, I so enjoy looking at all the beautiful things you create with other peoples stitching. I can't wait to see what you have in store for the little Santa I sent you.

valerie said...

Beautiful finishes Faye! You always do such a lovely job. I love the stand your purchased at Hobby Lobby...I'll have to check those out when I am near one.

Carol said...

I always enjoy your picture walks, Faye, and am so amazed that you are still finding time for your own stitching between teaching and finishing for others!! Do you ever sleep :) Really lovely work as always!
