Spring is bursting here in the Carolinas!!! Along with ALL the dreaded yellow pollen~ Soon, perhaps, we will have a hearty shower of rain to knock most of it down... Its always interesting to see the swirls of yellow in the rain water as it flows down the streets.....    Today, I'm sharing a few of my recent finishes.... These are some done for many of you.... Enjoy!!

Your Quaker piece is looking great. The unknown ornament you finished and shared is by Blackbird Designs, but can't remember its name. I always enjoy your picture walks, Faye.

Each photo is a delight! I think my favorite in this post is the Little House 2016 Christmas ornament - you always add such special details and fabrics. Is there any chance you would share where you find your lovely ribbons and charms? Thank you for your inspiring finishes.

Gorgeous finishing, as always! You're making great progress on your sampler! I don't know when you ever find time to stitch with all the finishing you do! You're amazing!

Carol said...

It's always a treat when I see a new post pop up from you, Faye! Love each and every one of your finishes and I'm happy to see that with all you do, you still have time to stitch, too :) When you retire, just think of all the happy hours you'll have!

Beautiful finishes Faye<3

They are all so lovely! Inspiration for sure. My favorite is the With Thy Needle & Thread piece. Do you know the name of the pattern? I searched Google and Pinterest and do not see it. I know Brenda does limited edition kits so I wondered if it was a kit. I adore it! Perfection again.

Today was such a lovely treat Faye? Your finishes are stunning as usual. I have so many favorites but of course I love the flat fold as Mary sent her beautiful stitching and your gorgeous finish to me. It's a winning combination!!! Your sampler is coming along perfectly...so much progress made. I don't know how you get so much done. I can't wait for your retirement to see what lies ahead in the cross stitch world. You are a true inspiration. RJ

Pam Jackson said...

Great work. I have recently started cross stitching again after being away from it for about 15 yrs. I don't do a lot of larger projects but mostly smaller, Christmas ornaments for the family. Glad I found your blog, can't wait to see what else you are doing. Thanks for sharing.

Mary Shields said...

Faye, I too cannot wait for your retirement, I'm always amazed at how much you accomplish. Your finish on Button Button was perfection, I loved the choices you made in colors and fabric, it's a perfect needle holder. Thank you for such a lovely finish to my stitching. Mary

Such pretty finishes. Lovely to see your continued progress on the Quaker sampler.

Lillie said...

What a delightful post and lovely finishes.
Your Quaker looks wonderful.

Kris said...

Happy retirement! You are going to LOVE it! I loved my career but I never looked back and looking forward and having time to stitch and do the things I want is absolutely wonderful. I do enjoy your blog. Your stitching is perfection.

Please educate me on the difference between cotton floss and silk. Is the silk look that much nicer?
