Hello My Dear Friends! Oh goodness... I have been a very bad blogger this week & have been so quiet. I'm so sorry! There are so many things I want to share with you & will ~ needle punching, trash~to~treasure, and cross stitching... just to name a few. But today's post is reserved for ~*Friday Finishes*~... and here they are... Enjoy!
Nan has stitched up ~*Thankful*~... just BEAUTIFULLY too! She stitched this on some hand~dyed linen she found at DoveStitch in the UK. She says this is the best~ever linen she has ever used. She believes the linen is made in Belgium and then George and Greta of DoveStitch dye it themselves. It is their Light Chocolate color. For threads she used The Thread Gatherer, chocolate caramel. Humm.... sounds good enough to eat huh?
The acorns in the corner are just PERFECT too!
Next is a super~great, ~*Boo Jack*~ stitched by Heidi. She used kloster cloth for her fabric. The finished pillow is just DARLING, don't ya think?
Some more great stitches by Patti...
This is a freebie offered to members of the Stacy Nash Groupies Yahoo group. (You can get this design by becoming a member.) Patti says this is her last Halloween finish of the year & what a dandy it is! She worked on it while passing out candy on Halloween. She stitched on a pumpkin~colored linen (perfect!) and finished it off by constructing the pillow, filling with crushed walnut shells, and trimming with black rickrack. Oh, and for the finishing sweetness... added some vintage touches.
Patti has also finished a ~*Thankful*~ turkey... adding her trademark ~ an old, skeleton key ~ for the glorifying touch.
Patti offers many of her delightful wares on Etsy. CLICK HERE to visit her shoppe.
The final ~*Friday Finish*~ for the day was beautifully stitched by Sonnja. She used the ~*Blessings*~ freebie and made a truly heartfelt lil' pillow. Just adorable!
Thank you as always... for stitching and sharing your lovely works! I do just love to see & share them!
I will do my best to keep a little more active in Blogland. My camera is full of photos to share and I'm sure will have even more after the weekend. We have rug hooking and rc car racing planned. What a combination huh? Stay tuned for more updates coming soon.
Wishing you warm smiles,
~ After the Rains... ~
