Today's picture walk~

Hello friends! Spring is approaching fast here in the Carolina's and it won't get here soon enough for me! I've had a few finishes for fellow stitches leave my craftroom here lately..... I thought I'd share some with you this morning....

 

Hands to Work by Tracy Riffle/

Little House Needleworks~Home of the Brave

I love adding layers of detail to stitched pieces....

I recently fell in love with the booklet In Friendships Way by Blackbirds Designs.... I especially loved the larger sampler but tweaked the thread colors after seeing it stitched by Nan Lewis...

 

A couple smaller designs in the booklet will soon be mounted on a distressed box and sewn into a Needlebook.... And, hopefully will be with me at the upcoming Prim Stitcher's Society Retreat in Atlanta....

 
 

I hope you enjoyed today's picture walk.... I'll happily spend my day with the screen door opened, listening the birds chirp in the sunny 65 degree weather as I keep the sewing machine humming.... As my hands stay busy, my heart remains full.....

 

Happy stitching friends~

Lovely finishes, Faye! The Live Simply design (that you turned into a project bag)is by Tracy Riffle of Hands to Work though and not LHN. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Your work is always so beautiful, Faye. I must add that your photography is amazing also. Not only do you do a lovely job finishing the items, your pictures displaying them are works of art, too. :-)

Your finishing is always beautiful and original - But I love seeing your stitching, too! I'm planning to stitch from the BB Friendship book in 2016. Thanks for the inspiration!

so many incredible beautiful stitched things finished into treasured pieces. So many happy people getting these beauties. I need to send a few things along to you in the near future and get in line ! I think full blown summer has come to the deep south - record highs today approaching 90 degrees - now its just too early for those kinds of temps. Take care and enjoy your spring break !

Wonderful finishes, Faye! I love the finishes where you layer fabrics, ribbons and other doodads! Looking forward to seeing your BBD finishes all complete and useful!

I love the sewing box you received. Do you happen to know where I would be able to buy a similar box. I love the idea of the two small removeable trays. Also, are you selling any of the kits for the strawberry pincushion you taught?
