May 2021 Fully Finished Objects

I’m linking up with Rachel at Ten Hour Stitcher for the Fully Finished Objects Gallery this month. This SAL is the best motivator to get those projects out of your box or drawer and out on display! Thanks for hosting, Rachel!

I have a few pretties to share with you!

I framed Deerfield by Chartmakers. Oh I love it!

You can’t see too well but there is a subtle scroll pattern on this frame which is very nice.

I display these small, primitive sampler type pieces around my fireplace. It is not a bright room so I feel like they are safe from light here. This is also where I stitch, and I can see them well from my kitchen sink so it makes a nice view for me when I am doing dishes. (I hate doing dishes.)

I also framed Flowers from Lizzie Kate. I painted an inexpensive frame from Hobby Lobby and added the Lady Dot trim (Mother Lode is the color) to decrease the amount of fabric showing. It came out pretty cute!

Finally, here is the finished box with the Victoria Sampler design for my daughter’s First Communion. I did it just like the other one with the gold rick rack, but lavender paint and lavender fabric under the pulled stitches. I made a little satin covered insert for the bottom of the box. It will make a nice little box for her rosary or other little sacramental.

And that is all from me this month! If you want to see more FFO’s head back to Rachel’s!

  1. These are terrific finishes, Mary. I’m sure your daughter will treasure her First Communion box.
    The trim balances your Lizzie Kate design in the frame perfectly. You give me some good ideas for finishing.

  2. Gorgeous work Mary. I absolutely love the First Communion box stitching and the added gold details. I like the two frames you have added to the stitched designs, The Lizzie Kate frame really claims attention.

  3. Fabulous finishing. I like the way you’ve added ric-rac Braid to the L*K design, a nice little embellishment. The box is beautiful too, a real keepsake.
