~*Friday Finishes*~

Hello Friends & Happy Friday! I have a full day ahead of me today... and sadly, I don't think I'm going to make my update tonight on Early Work Mercantile... but please swing by late tonight or tomorrow morning to check out all those amazing offerings the other artists have to share.  Who knows?  I just might be able to get things done... time will tell.

Today is Friday... and I'm happy to share some beautiful ~*Friday Finishes*~ with you...

From sweet Patti...

A darling sewing box she created using the freebie ~*Best Friends*~... oh, I am just so in love with this!  I adore Patti's work and this box is amazing...
 She told me the fabric used on the inside is an older fabric that she too loves... and is low on.  Don't you just hate it when you start running short on your favorite materials?  Patti, it is lovely.  Thank you for stitching and sharing!

Patti is offering this for sale on TDIPT... CLICK HERE to visit her offering page. She will update with her new items late tonight or tomorrow  morning.


This next finish is a little different.  You see, I re~did this rocker... but my buddy Bonnie in Massachusetts did the complete finish.  She didn't tell me who the stitch pattern came from, but she stitched up the most darling rocker cushion back to complete this piece...
 This is a little vintage rocker pincushion I found at an auction.  I re~did the finish on it & posted that it was going to my booth as inventory.  Bonnie loved it and asked to purchase it.  Thank you, Bonnie!  Then, once she received it... she quickly stitched up the beautiful backing on 48 count linen (over 2)... and backed it with wool.  This truly adds to the piece!  Beautiful work, Bonnie!
 Thank you for sending me a finished picture to share with everyone.  You do great work!


I need to head up to the booth to meet with my dear MIL.  We are re~arranging a few things today... and getting ready for the flea market that is scheduled for next Saturday ~ September 8th.  Once I return home... back to crafting... and maybe, just maybe I can meet my deadline tonight.

Wishing you all a beautiful day with warm smiles...
