~*Friday Finishes*~

Hello Dear Friends! TGIF! And because it is Friday... here are some AWESOME ~*Friday Finishes*~...

Theresa (no blog) stitched up the ~*Thankful*~ freebie... and said this was her first sampler piece. It is so beautiful! The variegated threads are wonderful! Theresa stained her finished pinkeep with Kiwi shoe polish and then lightly sprayed it with a clear matte finish. I've used Kiwi on my wood projects, but it never dawned on me to use it on my fabric finishes. How interesting and unique!

Cindy stitched up the ~*School Girl Pocket*~... so sweet! She does amazing works too. This one will be for sale at the Randolph Mercantile, in Moberly, MO. I wish I could take a road trip to visit that shop!

And now some ~*Simplify*~ freebie finishes...

Danielle stitched using Crescent Colours Finley Gold and GAST Cherry Wine for the bird and a dark brown DMC for the word. The added buttons are just so cute! She made this into a really nice wall hanging.

Lori stitched using the floss colors I suggested on linen... she too loves the blue and brown combo. She also added some simple patches... perfect touches of 'olde'. The blue is a scrap of antique fabric from her collection. Lori will be offering this, and many other fine works, on her picturetrail update next week. Here is the back...

I finally stole a few crafty minutes last night to take time to stuff mine up. This one will be in the mail today & hopefully will arrive on time for my sister's birthday. I kept it very simple... just something for her to tuck on a shelf or maybe place near a candle... that she always seems to have light.

Wishing you all a great weekend full of many warm smiles...
