I had a very productive weekend stitching wise .. and it felt great! On Friday I worked on a new name tag for the retreat (dogs ate my old one! lol) and worked on my signature for the signature RR .. take a look .. I really like what I came up with *smile*
Saturday was ornament finishing day .. I really pleased with how the ornaments all turned out although I won't go through all the gory details, I'll just say I learned a lot .. read some wonderful tutorials out in blogging land and I'm looking forward to finishing the other 2 or 3 I have left to do. This is from Glory Bee that I finished last month ...
This ornament I stitched last year ... it's from a Heart in Hand leaflet but I can't remember which one right now lol
Here's the back fabric for the tree ornament .. I thought it worked really well with the design :)
The next two ornaments were also stitched last year. They are MDesign and from a class she taught last year at the Pals retreat .. I'm really happy with how they both turned out when finished .. even my cording turned out good on these! lol These two were finished using the metal finishing forms (they came with the kits) and ohh I am in love with these forms, you are right Monique, they really make finishing a bit easier .. no measuring and cutting and recutting .. the fabric looks spotty, but its supposed to .. it's fabric from Picture This (I think that's the name) and the backing fabric is the same yummy yellow.
While I was looking for all my Christmas fabric and finishing supplies I found this old old design I stitched .. I can't remember when I stitched it .. back when I was using only aida though. Anyway, I found this tuck pillow amongst my tucks that I've purchased over the years .. and wow, they went together really nicely! Not the most difficult finishing but I do love the pillow none the less ..
Thanks everyone for your comments .. I am starting to feel human again .. a bit sniffling still and coughing now .. but I am getting better!! lol
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
I'm grateful for some finishes ...
