A sweet finish

I finished the BBD freebie Petites Lettres. I couldn't find any small motifs that I liked. I played around with some charms and was showing DH a couple of my ideas when he reminded me that his mom loved silver. So I went with these two silver charms .. I really like how this piece turned out and can't wait to start on the one in memory of my mom ...


Here's a picture of my mother and father in law .. he's still with us at a very active age of 87 .. please ignore the dirty picture frame! lol


Thanks for visiting and leaving comments .. I do love them! Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! And I hope you find your joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for sharing my stitching ...

Beuatiful stitching and a very lovely thought to add the silver charms in memory of your mother-in-law. I never did get the time to stitch this piece, but maybe when things settle down in our house again.

Your stitching is lovely! I love the little silver charms you put on your BBD piece. I plan to stitch it when I'm done w/CC - no Michele, it ISN'T done yet! LOL. Thanks for sharing the GC vacation pix too.

Beautiful stitching. I hope to get mine done tonight.

Wonderful stitching -- I never thought of adding charms!!! Very nice.

I toyed with the idea of adding an older white button, nothing seemed to look right === maybe I'll have to re-think

Enjoy the day

Your sampler turned out beautifully, Michele! I ended up not starting mine over the weekend after all. I've been focusing on finishing my Rosemarkie (Long Dog Samplers) piece instead. I definitely will be stitching it soon though.

Hi Michele,
I wanted to comment on what a happy couple they seem to be and it's great to see the photo! What a lovely memory with the stitched piece. The thing that really struck me is that my mother's name is Regina!
