A couple of finishes ...

Sure is nice to finish up April with a couple more quick finishes. The first finish is my heart on Willeke's Friendship RR. Willeke picked a lovely piece of 28 count evenweave and asked us to use the DMC conversion.

and here's a picture of what it looks like after 5 of us have stitched our hearts .. I really am having fun with this RR. I love seeing all the different interpretations.

My other finish was this cute rooster pillow I got at The Attic on my GCGC trip. The designer is Olde Colonial Designs and came with everything, even the DMC black lol ... I did add a touch of my own to the design .. bet you can't guess .. can you???

I think he looks right at home among his rooster friends ...

Well I'm off for a girls weekend at the beach with Lisa and Yvonne .. we are taking a nice long weekend .. friday through monday :) and I'm sooo looking foward to it! And maybe I'll even get a little stitching in too! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and here's to all those April showers bring you May flowers!

Thank you all for your lovely comments about my BBD sampler. It was a delight to stitch and I'm making plans for the sampler for my mom.
I hope you find your joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for sharing my stitching ...

You can almost hear that rooster crowing - it's perfect on that pillow. I love your creative touch on it.

Nice job on the RR. I love how they are looking as they come together.
Your rooster pillow is gorgeous. I love the scissors hanging from his mouth. At least it's not a frog LOL.
