~*Friday Finishes*~

Hello Dear Friends! Where does the time go? It just seems that the days fly by too fast anymore. I honestly don't feel I am 'too busy'... but then I honestly don't get as much done as I would like to either! Well anyway... Happy Friday! Happy Friday the 13th! YIKES!!! How did that happen? Well, it is just another day, right? Nothing bad is going to happen, right?

There are some awesome ~*Friday Finishes*~ to share today! Enjoy!


From Nicole... a beautiful stitch of my freebie design ~*Friend*~...
Nicole used 32 ct. Lt. Taupe Lugana linen. Her threads were from her scrap basket... Crescent Colours "Wild Berries", Weeks Dye Works "Madison Rose" and a Limited Edition sage green color by The Gentle Art that was given to her by a friend. She had some troubles with her reds bleeding when she did her finishing... sadly. BUT... her finish is still beautiful to me!


Another ~*Friend*~ finish... this one by Susan...

Susan stitched this lovely and mounted it to a box for a darling finish and gift to a friend... who is also a stitcher. I just love the attention to detail... don't you? So very charming!


One more finish for today... and this one took my breath away... from Isobel-Argante... her amazing finish of my pattern ~*Wicked Notions*~...

This pattern is available from my Etsy Shoppe or at your local needlework shop... or you can contact me via email to purchase through the mail if you wish. I made the pattern into a needlebook of sorts... but Isobel's finish into a pillow tuck is wickedly charming indeed!


That's all the finishes for today. I do wish you all a fabulous weekend ahead with many warm smiles...



  1. Wonderful finishes! And yes, the Wicked Notions is definitely catching my eye too!

  2. Thanks Betty! :)


  3. Know what you mean about time flying and getting less done - my weekends are a testament to that...
    Some lovely finishes. Love the colours Nicole used from her scraps - always an extra feeling of pleasure to use up those left over hand dyes :)
