~*Friday Finishes*~

Hello Dear Friends! Hey... do you know what time it is? Time for ~*Friday Finishes*~! ha ha... The way I typed that... reminds me of Howdy Doody!.. ha ha... what a silly way to start the day, but I'll bet you are smiling now for sure!!

Here are some dandies to share...

From my buddy Chris... a super-dooper needle puncher for sure... is her rendition of ~*Woolly Freebie*~...

Chris has an ingenious way of combining hooking and punching. She has HOOKED the sheep wool with a variegated boucle yarn... and then PUNCHED the rest of the design with 6 strand DMC floss. It gives such a great finished dimensional texture. She also takes great care in the final finishes of her work, adding a wool backing with extra details of applique... and stitches wool around the edge for the final touch. Just brilliant!

These next goodies are from Sandy... she has been keeping her fingers busy... and her needle must be burning, she has stitched so much!
~*Sheep Sampler*~ freebie

She has made some really great pillow tucks to display in the perfect little spots throughout her beautiful home... don't ya think?

~*Silent Holy Night*~ freebie

From Alice... one that always makes me smile... she has hooked up ~*Snowy Tony*~ freebie... what a chipper fella! Alice hooked with some sparkly wools that are really just great for adding that extra special touch of twinkle! Alice said this piece is 9 by 11 inches... but she has plans to hook it again larger. It would be a sweet welcoming mat in any home... a wonderful way to greet your visitors at the door. :)

Thank you ladies for playing with the patterns & doodles... and for sharing. All the finishes are wonderful!

Just a reminder... if you are interested in any of the freebie doodles & patterns I've offered, you can see them all in one spot by clicking on the link found in the upper left sidebar. I hope you will go snag a few (or all of 'em)... play with them and email me your finishes to share. I am not the only one that likes to see 'em... we all do!

Wishing you all a great weekend... full of creativity, fun, and lots of warm smiles...
