~*Friday Finishes*~

Oh Hello Dear Friends!  I do hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  Mine was very nice.  Unfortunately, my husband had to work.  We did go out for a nice supper together last weekend... and I awoke yesterday morning to a fresh bouquet of flowers and loving card.  And last night though... I enjoyed a nice candlelight supper with my kiddo.  He gave me a sweet handmade card.  I gave him a stuff dachshund.  (because it made me think of our new little Lucy puppy... and he thought that too)

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I'm very happy to share with you... these beautiful ~*Friday Finishes*~!

This  one comes from Ana Cristina...

She stitched up one of my Valentine freebies... and stitched it up so very lovely!  Check out the sweet lacy trim on her pillow!  Too sweet!


This one was stitched up my my dear buddy, Sharon ~ you may know her as Moosecraft ~ ...

This is Sharon's finish of my pattern ~*Peacock Keys*~ (available in my Etsy shop or your local needlework store).  Sharon stitched and finished just awesomely!  She added some calico to the top and bottom (Jeanne Horton fabric).... then using some linen thread, she stitched some stained cheese cloth to the top and bottom seams. And then, added a perfect touch!.... an old skeleton key!  Just so very darling!

Many warm thanks to both Ana Cristina and Sharon for stitching and sharing!  Your works are beautiful indeed!

I won't have the shop open tomorrow... or next Saturday.  Tomorrow I'm heading to an auction to try to win some new junky wares... inventory for the shop and our booth at Ellie Lou's.  Next Saturday is the Lenexa hook-in!  Oh so much fun!!!!

Wishing you all warm smiles...

Betty
