~*Friday Finishes*~

Hello Dear Friends!  Another Friday has rolled around... and I'm happy to report there are some beauties to share!

These first finishes come from Pat...

Her sweet garden hanger... a stitch from my freebie ~*In My Garden*~...
She told me she has a "brown thumb", but she does have an awesome collection of door stops lining her stairs.  She made the pillow hanger to display with them.  I just adore the trim of buttons lining the bottom... don't you?
Pat also stitched up my pattern ~*Strawberry Sampler*~... available in my Etsy shoppe or at your local needlework shop...
She made some personal changes to make room for her initials... because her dear hubby is always reminding her to date her work.  Sweet!  You know, I never mind you making personal changes to make the design fit for you.  Awesome!

Both are just beautiful finishes, Pat!  Keep up the great stitches!


Another lovely finish of my ~*Strawberry Sampler*~ comes from Janice...
She too needed to make some personal changes to the design... because her dear granddaughter is learning her ABC's and noticed the 'V' was missing.  So cute!  Of course that needed to be corrected!  :-)

Janice stitched on 32 count linen... OVER ONE!  Wowzers... I admire you brave souls with such great eyesight!

Another lovely finish, Janice!


Thank you to both ladies for stitching and sharing... keep the finishes coming... and I will keep sharing!

Today is my... well our... anniversary.  Seven years of wedded bliss!  <3  Tony has taken the day off work today... and Grandma & Grandpa are going to entertain Trinity... so we can spend the day together.

Wishing you all warm smiles...
