At last! I have my Finishes ready to show you! I am linking up with Rachel of Ten Hour Stitcher whose SAL helps motivate us towards fully finished objects. You know I’ve been getting a lot of stitching in even though it’s summer break for the kids right now, but finishing is another matter since I don’t seem to have the big blocks of time required to get out all my supplies and work out what I want to do. So any finishing is a triumph for me! Here’s what I’ve got:
The Stitching Bee Pillow: it was a no brainer to finish this easily because it came with the materials and great instructions!
Another bee…here’s Buzzz from Bent Creek. I originally planned to make this a tiny pillow but as I played with the trim and fabric decided on a flat finish. I want to find one of those little clipboard frames to put it on but it will be displayed like this for now
The Birthday Tart is now a Tart! This does make a cute finish. I have several other designs from Plum Street that are finished the same way so this one will get a companion eventually.
And the piece de resistance….the Mani Di Donna Blue Pot Pillow. What can I say… I love it! If I could’ve only picked one Nashville piece to buy this year, this would have been it. It’s so satisfying to see it all beautifully finished with the accessories. But I think I need a fancier pair of scissors now!
And…here’s one final FFO… from my oldest son! He stitched this from a little kit a couple years ago when he was 8 or 9 and at last we got a frame for it!
It’s only about 2×3″ but he did it all himself. I’m so proud of him!
