Still on vacation ... one more day to go. It's going to be so difficult returning to work on Monday!
I've been busy stitching and finishing. Here are some of my recent finishes!
First up - the LHN Pear Ornament. I finished the stitching on this back on January 17! It's stitched on 40 ct Iced Cappuccino and finished with a beaded edge using gold beads. It's dainty and cute!
Next - a "needle tweet" from Just Nan. The kit includes the beads and wool to finish, all you need to supply is the fabric and DMC fibers. This one is called Pinkie. So sweet...
This sweet little fishy fob just required finishing. Lori had stitched these for our "Under the Sea" retreat last week but ran out of time and wasn't able to finish them (she needed that time to cook and bake for us!) Going to put this little bugger to work on a scissors now...
This is one of the Essy's Friends designs that I stitched a long time ago - CURE tree from M Designs. I never finished it because I was somewhat intimidated by the finishing. Not anymore though - it's finished as a pin with a pretty ruched ribbon edge. The design and finishing supplies were part of a kit which is no longer available.
And last but not least, my big finish...I finished stitching the Birds and Berries Needlecase from the Silver Needle Blackbird Designs retreat. After putting the final stitches in it, I put the needleroll together and voila!
I didn't take a picture of the inside - it's finished with some delectable Blackbird Designs fabrics and has three pockets for holding stitching necessities!
That's it for me tonight. I'm heading back to my stitching chair to enjoy another evening filled with stitching!
