~*Friday Finishes*~

Hello Dear Friends! TGIF! We have had another week of snow... heavy snow... and school was canceled two days because of it. However, we are in for some warmer temps soon... so all this snow will be gone. I'm hoping it will be gone for the season... but know we will most likely get more ice/snow before May gets here. I've kept busy crafting and have gotten a lot done. But look at all these fabulous ~*Friday Finishes*~ that I've received! WOW! These are all so amazing! Thank you ALL for stitching and sharing! I just LOVE to see your finishes... and know others do too. It is always so interesting to see how the same design can be interpreted so differently & so beautifully. :)

Faye has been doing a lot of Valentine's Day stitching! AND... she has these up for a giveaway on her blog... Click Here to do to that post. These are just so super sweet!

I spied this finish on her blog too...

From Betsy... stitched lovingly on Aida, stained with coffee, and filled with bits of wool...

From Mary...Mary has her Mom staying with her. Her Mom isn't well. She knows how her Mom likes pretty things with pastels and pale shades... so she is filling her house with things she knows will make her Mom smile. She ended up making this into a small pillow that hangs from a ribbon. Precious!

From Lauren... she says she wanted to make this into a pin keep but didn't feel like lugging out the sewing machine. She finished this off into a darling lil' mat. I just love the fringe! This finished off to about 5 1/4 by 5 3/4 inches. She said she was putting it in the mail the other day for a friend. Lucky friend! :)

From Cathi... another sweet Valentine pillow! She has a few other beauties stitched up & finished like this. Unique finish with the cross stitch on the top of a tall, skinny pillow... very cool!

Theresa is jumping ahead a few holidays... preparing for Halloween. She has an 18 month old that keeps her pretty busy... so she thought she would get a jump start! These awesome lil' pillows will be Halloween goodies for her friends... TOO CUTE! She used bits n' pieces of ~*Wicked*~ and ~*Wicked Notions*` to stitch these up.

To end this post of ~*Friday Finishes*~... Laura from Germany sends me some of the most beautiful photography. She has used some of ~*Live Laugh Love*~ to make a few lil' sweets... her stitching is lovely, but her photography is stunning!

WOW, huh? Thank you all again for sharing! Please remember, if you have finishes to share... email them to me & I will highlight them on ~*Friday Finishes*~. Also, if you have a blog to link too...please include that in your email too.

Wishing you all warm smiles... and happy stitches!
