2016's last picture walk.......

Greetings friends!!!! Hard to believe we're flipping the calendar soon to January 2017!! Hard to believe....
 
 I hope everyone's Christmas was nice... Mine was.... My children and I spent Christmas Day together.... It always amazes me how they've become grown men with lives of their own..... I'm SO proud of them!
I'd like to take a quick moment to say a heartfelt "Thank~you" for all the nice comments, words of encouragement and inspirational feedback you give me with my blog posts.... I truly draw my creativity and designing inspiration from you, my friends and customers~ 2017 will bring continued stitching, sewing and finishing services... so, stay tuned~ 
 
I'd like to share a few finishes from early December...... 
 
 
Valentine Sampler
With thy Needle & Thread
A co-ordinated 5 piece set
 
I painted, distressed and waxed a paper mâché box...... Then mounted the padded heart trimmed with mini-Pom Pom trim~
 
I like to make a padded bottom in the box.....   
Pin pillow fits nicely inside.....  
....tiny "x's" line the seams......  
Rouched distressed seam binding on the scissor fob~  
...a tiny wool appliqué red heart on the back...   
A classic With thy Needle & Thread Needlebook... I love all the  buttons dangling along the bottom~  
A pocket and padded pin cushion is inside.....  
All topped off with a monogrammed 12 x 15" Carolina Stitcher project bag....  
    Stay safe and enjoy ringing in our new year today.....  Many blessings, much peace, happy hearts & creative stitching hands~

Each and every piece is a true work of art and beauty. I am always amazed at the little touches you add - the wool heart on the back of the pinkeep, the tiny X's at the seam line, padded bottom in the box, the buttons, the charms - and wonder how is it Faye always thinks of these lovely additions that make these projects go from the simple to the magnificent? You have genius, creativity and such talent. I'm always agog when I read your blog! Happy New Year, and I look forward to your 2017 posts.

Happy New Year Faye! My dear friend Mary had you finish all those gorgeous stitches for my birthday. I have always wanted a Faye finish but to have five put me “over the moon".
Mary is such a generous and thoughtful friend but she really outdid herself with such beautiful stitches. And then you did your finishing magic and turned them into the prettiest set I’ve ever seen. Thank you so much for making it a perfect birthday. May 2017’ be a wonderful year for you and filled with beautiful finishes for all of us that love to see your work. RJ

The last pieces of 'art' for 2016... and what beauties they are! Tho I have not been commenting and blogging as much the last bit of the year, I must tell you that I have very much enjoyed seeing your posts, with the finishes. So inspiring! Without the blogs I read, my stitching life might have come to a complete stop last year! Thank you for sharing with us! Hugs!
