If the Shoe Fits

Seriously, how cute is this piece?

This is one of the latest FFOs I finished for a fellow stitcher, Linda. The pattern is "Witch's Shoe" from Sue Hillis and its super, super cute! 

Linda wanted it made into a mounted flatfold, so the stitched piece is matted with black cobweb fabric and then attached to a green polka dot fabric flatfold. Lime green pom-pom trim edges all sides of the stitched piece, and some lime green ribbon was used for the bow on the shoe, as well as the laces.

Ladybug, Ladybug

Hello Friends!

Popping in really quick in between my marathon finishing day to show this adorable pattern from Little House Needleworks all stitched up and FFOed.

I've had this pattern in my stash forever and finally got around to stitching it. As cute as it is in the pattern photo, it's even cuter all stitched up. I used a DMC conversion, using 3777 and 356 for the reds and kept the green and dark brown the same. I opted out of stitching the border.

It's finished on more of my favorite black and tan primitive homespun and then I used a burlap bow for the center with a cover button and lady bug for the center. It's absolutely adorable!

It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere!

Hello Friends!

Really quick post before I get some sun for the day just to show this "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere" finish I just moved off my table.

I stitched this super cute design on 28 ct eveneave and then matted it with some coordinating fabric before mounting both to this white-washed wall hanging. I made some cording out of colors in the stitched piece, edged the design with it and then added some ribbons and bows to the corner with a cover button center. The pattern calls for an olive button, but I just made my own out of some clay and added that to the glass in the center.

Early Morning Hustle

Hello Friends!

I got up extra early this morning to finish up the last of Andrea's stitched pieces. I've played around with them for a couple of weeks trying to figure out what finishes would be best for her pieces because they're so beautiful, and this is what I came up with:

This first piece is the top part of "Sunflower Manor" from Hands on Design. I finished into a mounted flat so that it can be placed in an easel or used as a shelf-sitter, but I attache an orange ribbon around the back so that it could be hung up, too. I made some aqua cording to pull out the aqua stitches in the pattern and then added a black and white gingham bow with a sunflower center.

The second piece is "Trick or Treat" from Shepherd's Bush. I chose to finish it as a mounted flatfold but I used black and white check homespun for the back and purple fabric for the front to pull out the colors of the piece. I used black cording for the edges and then added some purple and black ribbons with a black and white bow in the center.

The third piece is "A Little Snow" by Lizzie Kate, and I went with a easel finish for this one. I used some green fabric for the backing and made some cording out of pale pink floss. Then I made a small bow out of snowflake ribbon and added a snowflake button to the center.

The last one if this cute little bee pattern I finished as a mounted flat ornament. I used some white cording around the edges to pull out the white in the bee's wings and then added a brown bow with a black and tan homespun cover button center.

Then I FFOed this little sailboat piece I had stitched up from Country Cottage Needleworks. I made it a mounted flat ornament with green as the backing piece on the front, and blue as the backing piece on the back. Then I made some cording out of blue and white floss and added a blue bow with a green coordinating cover button.
