~ Good Day Friends ~
I've had a productive week so far, and after a finishing bout today in my finishing room, I'm really excited about how a couple of things turned out! And I had to share them ASAP!
My first share, my faithful readers, have already had a sneak peek last week. I alluded to those of you who read, that I had a finishing idea. Well, it turned out just like I had it in my head. Maybe a little bit better because I added the ric-rac at the last minute and...well, I'll let you make your own decisions on the outcome. Here is:
"In Full Glory"
by Blackbird Designs
stitched on: 40ct pearl gray linen over two
finished as: a small pillow

I like my finishing and details to be as pretty on the back as it is on the front...I mean think about it we all look at backsides....now don't you tell stories, you know you sneak a peek of backsides too!

when I saw this design when it first came out, I knew what I would do with it.
And it turned out just as I intended...
designed by: Lizzie Kate
stitched on 30 ct. WDW straw linen over 1
using the converted DMC colors
finished as: a pocket watch necklace
Finally a pocket watch necklace for me! I've made three of these and have gifted them to dear friends and finally this time it was time for little ol' me to be a recipient. I love it!
These two newbies will definitely be entries from my corner in our county fair next week. I've got cross stitch entries laying all around my house right now. I'm going through and trying to pick the best of the best of what I've stitched in the last year to fill as many entries as I can. The more entries, the more chances I have of bringing home the gold. Ha ha ha! Really I just enjoy entering and seeing how I do. I hear rumors that its a brand spanking new judge this year!
So until next time....
I'll be keeping my hands to work and heart to God, just like always...and picking out some winners (I hope!) for our fair :)
Hugs in stitches,
