Hope everyone had a great long weekend. We had beautiful weather and it looks like it will stay around for a few more days.
Last week I finished up a few wips I was working on. The first one is by Bent Creek, Rise and Shine. I love how this one looks with my coffee themed table runner .. don't you think it would look great in a banner made of this fabric??
The next finish is Blackbird Designs' Small Token. I'll be finishing this into the suggested pin cushion. This was a really fun design to stitch and I really liked the colors. I used the fabric and threads recommended by the designers.
and my last finish is Blackbird Designs' Petites Lettres Rouges that I stitched in memory of my mom. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out and can't wait to go and find frames .. I'd like to frame both this one and the one I did for my mil in the same frame, something old and distressed looking .. I'll have to hit up some garage sales.
Carol is having a giveaway on her blog .. she made some lovely scissor fobs and is offering them up to two lucky winners *smile*
I'm off to do some ornament exchange stitching .. I'm really behind and need to focus and get these stitched, finished and mailed .. hate making my friends think I don't care about them because I'm late with their ornaments .. so no stitching for myself until I'm caught up!
I hope you find your joy in your stitches ...
I'm grateful for sunshine ...
