One of my favorites......

When you stitch something many times, it qualifies as one of your favorites~ Many of you have this older classic chart in your inventory at home..... I have to say that one of my all time favorites is an Out of Print chart 18th Century Stitchers Pinwheel by The Goode Huswife ...  I love monochrome stitches.... I love alphabets.... I love pinwheels because they can easily be finished into an ornament..... I love collections~ Take a look......  

I've stitched many of them.....

 

....mostly in reds.... I love red~ 

 

Here's a few in a tray to display..... approximately 3" in diameter......

 

Simple cording.... a charm on the back.... 

You'll see I like using leftover scraps of linens for my backing fabric.......

 

 

I've given a few way as gifts..... I try to stitch a couple each year..... 

Needlework Tree Ornaments

Sue Hillis~ Needleworkers Tree

~Another monochrome~

Just choose your color palette

 

My Stitchers Tree has a thimble charm....and special ribbon.....

  That's a few from my personal collection of monochrome ornaments..... tomorrow I'll be showcasing more of the finishing I have done for many of you.....   Stay warm and stitching friends!!   Faye

These are beautiful. Sometimes a simple finish just suits the style of the stitched piece perfectly.

I truly look forward to your posts of the many beautiful stitching finishes that you do. They are better than getting to go to a candy store any day!! I want to let you know how thrilled I was last night to receive three ( I said three!!) of your project rolls from two of my kids. I have seen many different ones but I come back to yours everytime - they are my favorite, and now I am the lucky owner of three of them. (My stitching buds are going to be so jealous!) Merry Christmas and blessings to you for the New Year. : )

The collection of pinwheels is wonderful, Faye! Love the "Peace"tree, too and like you, I love red!

Merry Christmas Faye. Love the pieces.

Funny, but I can't think of a single pattern that I have completed twice. I may do so with my Prairie Schooler Santas so that each of my children has the same ones, but I haven't gotten there yet. Your pinwheels are great!

I really like all the variations on the ABC pieces! I am finding that I like stitching alphabets too! I may look that one up! I have stitched a few large pieces over again, usually it is for gifts! Not many smalls, as there are so many out there to pick instead! Thanks for sharing! Hugs!

Faye Riggsbee said...

I'm so glad you like them! Enjoy and know they were made with love~

Thanks Sis! You're just the best! Enjoy Moms birthday~ Merry Christmas!
