~Feathered Nest Pin Book~

Good morning friends! The weekend is behind us..... Time to get our Monday on~   Id like to share a stitch and finish that just "spoke" to me the minute I laid eyes on it.... As a member  of the Stacy Nash Country Sampler Girls Club, when I received the May kit, it screamed summer to me~ The slightly softer color palette, the unique shape and finish and the opportunity to put my Carolina Stitcher spin on things elements were all there....  So, here is my interpretation.....  

 I love the dainty strawberries and the sweet bird...

 

The oval shape is perfect and the lattice work stitching was a great compliment.... Gentle Arts Carriage Black has beautiful mottling.... Its actually more dark gray's than black...

 

 Black seam tape is attached to close the book... 

 
Here is where the Carolina Stitcher spin on things are revealed... I couldn't have the inside remain plain... So I appliquéd a strawberry to push those pins in to... Its a Pin Book after all......
 
 
 
 

A few French Knots to represent tiny strawberry seeds... A small stem... You get the idea... 

 
So, if you are a member of this fantastic stitch club through Country Sampler of Spring Green, WI and are interested in my help in finishing, please give a shout out... I am on Facebook and of course, you can email me or comment here on my blog....Perhaps you have another stitch but like the finish style.... I can help you with that also..Just let me know~ 
Make it a great Monday!!
Faye

I've been inspired by beautiful finishes the last couple of years. Beyond a pillow or simple bag I chicken out. I think it's time I step out of my comfort zone and start giving things a whirl. Thanks for the inspiration.

So lovely!! I, too, love the strawberry inside. Is the oval shape the suggested finish or is it yours?
