~*Friday Finishes*~

 Hello Dear Friends... and Happy Friday!  Today is the final day of school here.  That means 'Summer Fun' is about to begin!  Or... if you would rather call it 'Mom, I'm Bored'... I'm sure you can relate!  Well, I have a bunch of things planned ~ baseball, basketball camp, swimming, Summer Movie passes, art projects, and much more.  Hopefully I can keep up my energy to match his... and not get too much on the plate because you all have read how much I try to do all the time anyway!  Oh, don't get me wrong, I am looking forward to it!  I know this will be one FUN summer!

Do you see that pretty finish up above?  That lovely ditty was stitched up by Sally as a gift to a friend.  She thought her friend could use a little pick me up... and this was just the trick to do it!  I agree!  She used DMC and added some flower accents.  I just love how she off~set the stitching on the pillow.  Just so sweet!  This pattern is available in my freebie collection... ~*Friend*~ freebie.  You can see all my free patterns... HERE... for now anyway.  I'm thinking I need to move them as I have used up all the allotted room in my picturetrail account.  I'll keep you posted on where they go.

Some more news to share... I have listed my ~*Antique House*~ Pillow Tuck on Ebay.  Remember seeing this?  The pattern was given out by my dear friend, Kelley of With Hook and Needle, as a challenge piece.  I had it offered on Primitive Handmades Mercantile last month... but didn't get any purchase requests.  Hmmmm... well... maybe someone will be interested now.  I am very pleased with the finish.

Wishing you all a blessed Friday... with lots of warm smiles...
