Summer Whirligig

Hello Friends!

It's been a busy so far, but I have a lot of progress to show for it!

First, I FFOed my Summer Whirligig stitched piece into another farmhouse tart. It's the perfect size and shape so it was a no-brainer. 

Because the size of the piece was sufficient enough for the tart's size, I left the stitching on it's own and just did my basic finishing with some padded batting behind the stitching. Then I edged it with white twist cord and made of a bow from more of that fabulous red and white gingham ribbon. For the center, I just made another cover button from my tan and black homespun fabric to bring out some of the dark brown in the pattern and then glued that to the center. Super cute summer piece!

I also worked on a number of custom requests this week including finishing up these lovelies stitched up by one of my favorite people, Robin and her mom. 

I can't tell you how many pieces they send me that I really struggle to send back. I just love the pieces they send. It's like Christmas morning when I open their packages.
