I disappeared for a few days. Sorry about that. I really was here; I just didn't take time to post. We had some family in town from Canada and it just got a little crazy around here!
As promised, here's another up close shot of one of my finishes from my finishing frenzy two Saturday's ago. The design is from The Drawn Thread. The was was a project that our needlework guild worked on together. The thread colors were changed to give this a "fall" look. The birds now are crows instead of robins! We did a box finish. Rather than using a styrofoam form, we used several pieces of foam core board cut to the same size and taped together. The coordinator supplied us with lots of ribbon to make a big fancy bow for the top. I'm not very good at making bows so I just kind of tied them all together and cut them short for what I call the "bad hair day" effect. I think it looks okay!
As many of you know, Vonna celebrated a birthday two weeks ago. I was very late in getting a gift off to her, but I think it's okay to extend the celebration a few days longer. (Mama Joan thinks its okay to extend birthday celebrations by weeks and months! LOL!) Here's the little pillow I stitched and finished for Vonna, our 5th of July birthday girl! Happy belated birthday Vonna!
I sent a few other packages out on Monday so hopefully there will be more pictures to share in a few days! Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!
