Mothers Easel (and More!)

Hello Friends!

It's been a very productive week in the studio with a variety of new items completed.

First I FFOed my "Mothers" piece into an easel. And I'm loving it!

I found this whitewashed easel at Michaels (pretty sure) and it was the perfect size for this piece, so I matted it with some green fabric and then mounted them to the front. I didn't think it looked right with any trim or cording so instead, I added color and contrast with the ribbons and cover button at the top. I may have gone overboard but I do love the colors.


Pattern: Mothers
Designer: Lizzie Kate
Mothers - Cross Stitch Pattern
Fabric: 28 ct Tea-dyed Evenweave Monaco

I also finished up a large custom order for scissor fobs and while I was at it, I had some fun playing with beads in my stash. Here's a sampling of the fobs I created. I love them all!

Then, after working on a custom order for some gift card holders, I worked on some new patterns while I had my paper stash out in front of me. I absolutely LOVE this garden-theme one.

Then, during all of this, I worked on some custom finishing for my stitchy pal Robin. I love all of her stitching, but this set in particular is going to be hard to let go.

The Mother's stitch and easel finish is fabulous as are the fobs. The gift card holder makes me smile. What incredible finishes you have created!

Your finishing is always so pretty, and I love the gorgeous key fobs too. x
