I had one of those days at work, the day definately couldn't end soon enough. I was created at the door with a large box and when I saw the return address I couldn't wait to open it. A while ago I found someone that did finishing .. another friend of mine had used her and was very pleased. Soooo I contacted Vicki, and sent off my stitching. I really don't sew and I was really excited to find someone to finish them .. and when I opened the box I was even more glad I'd sent them off .... I'm soooo happy with everything .. take a look!!!!
I stitched this last year .. Shepherd's Bush's Eggs .. how cute is this pillow! and the pillow insert is removable :)
This was stitched this year .. Christmas Joy by Angel Stitchin' ... it has a slot in the back for banner hanger .. don't you love the fabric choices?!
This is one my first counted cross stitch pieces .. I found it last year when I was moving into my stitching room .. I don't remember anything about this pattern except that it was in a big hardbacked book of counted cross stitch patterns. Fun to have something from sooo long ago! lol
This is SB's Believe .. this little pillow has a hanger .. I love the way one of the corners is turned in.. Vicki told me it would be easy if I wanted to turn them all in .. looks cute both ways. I just love this fabric too .. sooo warm and Christmasy
I always try and stitch at least one reindeer for myself .. this is a cute little guy, Prancer .. designer is Ewe & Eye & Friends .. stitched in 2006
This cute little ornament is by Erica Michaels, Slice of Christmas, stitched in 2005
I really love this pillow .. the fabric is just perfect! It's Angle Stitchin's O Christmas Tree from 2005 JCS, stitched in 2006
Here's another cute pillow with the turned in corner .. It's Noel by Glory Bee from 2006 JCS, stitched in 2007
I am just sooooo pleased with all these finishes! Now to decide what I'm keeping and what I'm might give as presents .. it's going to be hard not to keep them all .. but I do have some very good friends that will appreciate a gift like this *smile*
I have a Blogaversary (what a silly name eh? lol) coming up soon .. Thanks Ruthann if you hadn't missed your .. I wouldn't have been aware that mine was sooo close! Hmmmm, now that I have all these new pillows and wallhangings and ornaments, maybe I'll have to give one away on my blogaversary .. come back and see what I decide :)
This week has really gone fast and I'm really glad .. it hasn't been the best of weeks, between work and menopause .. it's been pretty ugly! lol .. Thanks everyone visiting and leaving me your comments .. I really enjoy them .. and it's nice to see a few new people commenting too!!
I'm grateful for someone else creating beautiful things from my stitching ...
