Back to the Finishing Table!

Hello Friends!

I'm back in the studio knocking out some small finishes as I work to get off the struggle bus after enjoying the last two weeks of my vacation with one of my besties who flew out from Connecticut. She's one of those friends who you spend 99.9% of your time with laughing so I'm really sad to see her go, but we've already made plans to visit again this fall so I have something to look forward to!

To get myself back in the swing of things, I focused on finishing some smalls -- some from my stitching and some from others.

The first one I FFOed from my stash is this cute pattern from Hands on Design. I finished it into a small easel using some green floral fabric as the background. I made some cording out of a coral color and then added a bow and heart center.


Pattern: Stitching is My Heart's Desire
Designer: Hands on Design
Stitching is My Heart's Desire - Cross Stitch Pattern
Fabric: 32 ct Lambswool Jobelan
Colors Used: As Charted

The second FFO is a small from Heart in Hand that I made into an ornament. I used faux denim as my backing fabric and used twine for the edging. Then I used some of my denim ribbon with stars as the topper and added a wooden star as the center.


Pattern: Merry Making Mini - 4th of July
Designer: Heart in Hand
Merry Making Mini - 4th Of July (w/embellishments)
Fabric: 32 ct Vintage Country Mocha
Colors Used: DMC 930, 3777, 729, 931, 3828, White

The last of the small finishes today are stitched by Robin. I always love her pieces so I'm always tempted to make a second round for my own collection.

You have been in finishing mode and everything looks so incredible. I really like that easel finish for the HOD piece. Well done! I can't wait to see the ones that are heading to VA. Enjoy your weekend!
