*Two Finishes to Share*

This morning I got done a custom finish for a customer who wanted "Pride & Glory" done as a pinkeep. I stained some reproduction fabric, added a bit of stained chenille yarn, stuffed it with sawdustand stitched some tiny x's around it.  I'm happy with the way it turned out and hope she will be too!

My bloggin' buddy, Faye aka Carolina Stitcher sent me this photo of her "Happy 4th" finish.  Some of you may havealready seen it on her blog, but I still wanted to post it, in case any of you have not been to her wonderful blog yet.  She always seems to find the perfect fabric and trims for her finishes.  Just lovely Faye!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and as always,
Happy Stitching

This Stitcher's Finish : )

Yep, that's right.  I finally have something stitched and finished and it feels good : ).  With all this designing I'm doing it has left very little time to get any finishes done.  I can't believe it's the middle of June already.  Where has the month gone?

Presenting my Star Spangled Pinkeep

* * * 
Stitched on 30 ct WDW Confederate Gray linen that I've stained.  I used overdyed floss.
The blue is WDW Navy and the red is R-27 from Victorian Motto Sampler.
Boy, Nancy at VMS has some great colors. 
This is filled with wood shavings and backed with a coordinating homespun fabric.
I made a little wool strawberry fob that's attached in the back with a safety pin.

Look for this pinkeep to be listed Tuesday night, June 14th on TDIPT.
Appropriately enough, that's Flag Day!
Hope eveyone can stop by to see what all my TDIPT sisters have made this month.

*Another Stitcher's Finish*

Hi everyone.  I have another stitched finished.  This one was sent to me by Terri.
She stitched "Bloom Sampler" into a sweet little bed pillow using coordinating fabric and trim.  It's just so pretty.
Thank you Terri for sending me a picture of your beautiful finish and letting me share it.
Still working on some new designs so I'll be stitching as much as possible this weekend.

*A Stitcher's Finish*

Dora (no blog) sent me this picture.  She has stitched and framed  "My Little Sampler".
She used 30 ct broomstick brown using the recommended DMC threads and got this great frame at Michael's.  It really turned out nice Dora.  Thank you for stitching and sharing.  
I always love to receive pics of your finishes.

I am busy designing a few new patterns and hope to show some pics real soon.
Happy Stitching,
