Essy's Friends



Lois from Elegant Stitch sends one of these kits each month and I'm months behind in stitching and finishing, so when I was home earlier this week trying to nurse my cold I though I could make a dent in my collection of Essy's Friends kits. As you can see, I completed three of them - from left to right, Drawn Thread, Glory Bee, and Indigo Rose.

As I look at this picture, however, I'm realizing that I finished the Indigo Rose scissors sheath upside down! Moral of the story - don't tackle new finishing techniques when you are sick!

I am sorry to hear you're ill. Are you feeling better now? I hope so! Your upside down scissor pocket makes me laugh! Just stitch a cord on the other end, and it's an unusual ornament. ;>

Congratulations Cathy, you did a great job on the stitching and finishing, even the upside down one! :) (which I never noticed until you mentioned it ;))

Isabelle said...

They all look great, Cathy! My favourite is the pillow... So beautiful! Take good care!

Karoline said...

Your finishing is all wonderful, as always Cathy. Sorry to hear that you've been under the weather - hope you feel better real soon!

I am so sorry to hear about you being sick! Your finishes look great though!!!!

Melissa said...

Nice job, Cathy! I'm behind on my Essy kits, too. Like Karen, if you hadn't mentioned it, I probably never would have noticed the scissor sheath was upside down. :-)

Love all your finishes. I would have never guessed you had one upside down! Shhhhh! Just don't tell next time! Tee hee!

Joanie said...

Love all of them! I have the ESSY's kits and haven't done one yet! So I better get busy!
Your stitching and finishing is beautiful. I love the Love pillow, so cute! Your scissor pocket is divine even if it's finished upside down.

Hope you are feeling better now. Your small peices are fantastic, very pretty all of them.

Tessa said...

Hmmm - I wouldn't have noticed if you didn't mention it!!!!
they look lovely all together - nice job :)

Lelia said...

Hope you are feeling better ... I think your three kits look beautiful.

Does it make a difference in the scissor sheath? It really looks nice in your photograph.

They all look fantastic Cathy! You've inspired me to get mine out again!

Von said...

Took me a little bit to see how in the world you got that project upside down, lol! I'd let you finish anything of mine even if you were sick as a dog with the flu! :D

Nice work on the Essy's. Put a long cord on that scissor sheath to hang it around your neck and then it will be right side up to you when you look down at it. Problem solved!
I love the Essy's, but they do come at you a little fast some months.
Feel better soon.

They're very cute, and I can't tell the Indigo Rose design is upside down :)
