A few more finishes to share with you...
I finally finished my retreat piece from earlier this year. I had finished the pincushion on top and the little strawberry (hanging in the back) but had not finished the needlebook...it is now finished! This is a design from Victoria Sampler.
This next piece, I can't even tell you when I stitched it, it was stitched so long ago. It was in my finishing pile because it was supposed to have piping around the edge of the pillow. I don't really know how to make piping. I got the bright idea to finish with chenille in a coordinating color. I am happy with it. The design was an exclusive from Blackbird Designs for Elegant Stitch.
Last but not least, some ornaments, also from Victoria Sampler. Two for Minnesota and one for Indiana. In the second photo you can see the fabric that I used on the back of the Minnesota ornaments (special Minnesota fabrics.) These still need to have bows added; I didn't have the right ribbon in my stash, so will add them later.
The finishing pile is finally starting to disappear....just one or two more days dedicated to finishing and I might actually be caught up!
