~*Sharing More Fabulous Finishes*~

Hello Dear Friends! Thank you to all of you for the kind comments about my latest patterns. There are more in the works & I'm doing my best to stay focused. School started yesterday. Trinity is loving 2nd grade!

The monthly hook~in is tomorrow morning at Judy Cripps' & I really should be getting something together to take... I have no idea yet what it will be even... but I've gotten several emails of FABULOUS finishes that I wanna share with you first... ENJOY ~

This one is gonna win a Blue Ribbon ~ I'm sure of it! My good friend, Kathy, punched up the freebie doodle ~*Falling Leaves*~ and has plans to enter it in the Fair next month. Aren't the leaves and background... well the whole thing really!... just AMAZING?! Stunning, truly stunning!

I've got a few ~*Wicked*~ finishes to share! :)

These lil' pillows were stitched up by Cindy & she has them offered in her Etsy Shoppe! (along with a few other familiar sweets too) These lil' pillows do look so darling in her display, don't they? Cindy has suggested they would make great Halloween Hostess gifts & I totally agree! Very cool!

This one is from Dora... no blog yet she says. Dora pre-stained Osnaburg fabric with coffee. She pre-stained it because she used some overdyed threads (Weeks: Bright Leaf, Sweet Potato, Swamp Water, Gentle Art: Simply Shaker Grape Arbor and DMC 310). That is a really good idea! (Overdyed threads are great, but they can bleed if they get wet. It would be terrible to put in all that work & then have the fibers stain where you don't want them too.) Amazing work!

And this one if from Jen & is so simply, perfectly prim! Her words "All antiqued and wrinkled..." Just perfect!

I just LOVE all these finishes! Don't you?! Thank you Ladies for working with the doodles & charts... and for sharing! You have all made super works!

Time to gather up my stuff for the hook~in. Other than linen & wool... I'm still not sure what to take. Hummm.... guess I'll report back on that later!

Warm smiles to you all...

    I finally got started on my first cross stitch...took me a while to figure out I was using the wrong fabric..which made the stitching very difficult...I'm loving it now...the right fabric definitely helps..:)
