~*Friday Finishes*~

WOOHOO! It is Friday! You know what that means... time to share some FABULOUS finishes!

There is LOVE in the air! Valentine's delightfuls to share...

Sharon has stitched up the most recent Valentine freebie ~ oh~so~sweetly too! She used Valdani 3-strand floss in shades of deep burgundy and variegated chocolate brown ~ stitching on a 32 count linen. She finished her piece by using a red cotton on the back and stuffing it with wool snippets (pieces of wool left over from her rug hooking). To make the hanger, she used more of her threads, but added a couple of vintage buttons for a little added sweet touch. How cool is that? :) She said the pillow finished to 2 1/4 by 6 inches. She also said she stitched this in an evening. That is a nice quick stitch! Lovely, Sharon!

Cindy has also stitched the latest Valentine freebie... but has also stitched one up from last year's freebie. She too has done a lovely job! Cindy has these (well, one is sold already ~ not surprising!) offered in her Etsy shoppe ~ Homestead Gatherings. She has used deep burgundy threads also ~ I'm assuming DMC ~ and stitched on 14 count Aida. Both are very precious, Cindy!

This DARLING needlepunch finish is from Laura... ~*Willie Has Found Love*~ freebie doodle. She added her own inspiration to the border with the scallops & I think it is so SWEET! She said she decided to make the change while she was punching ~ which was difficult she said, but I really like it! Splendid, Laura!

Thank you all for working with the freebies & sharing! It is so nice to see all the goodies!

Wishing you all warm smiles,
