Pretty Finished Finishes ...

Happy October everyone!  Yep, October!  Can't hardly believe it .. where did September go???  I missed it! lol  I did so enjoy reading everyone's blogs and see all the pumpkins for Cathey ... I'm sure it put a smile on her face to see so many of them ... just for her!  We are an amazing group of women!

Speaking of amazing women ... I sent Faye some of my finishes recently and here's what I got back ... omgosh she makes my stitching just sing!  Love Love everything!  Here's a few pictures ..

I sent Faye the picture of how this needed to be finished to work with the hanger ... I'm so pleased with the results!

love these little pockets ...
this is one of my husband's favorites ... I'm using it as a candle mat ...


don't you just like the extra touches ... like this sweet bell ...

She turned my favorite bird into a Christmas box!

who doesn't love buttons??
or bells ...

she even added a little leaf to the back of October Curls ...


Thanks Faye for the lovely work ... it's so nice to have things finished so I can enjoy alll the stitching I do.  She has a few more to finish ... can't wait to see what she comes up with this time!  Funny, I can't remember what else she has to finish.  Should be really fun to see them!

I've been stitching on a few things but only have one picture to share.  This is a Halloween design from the JCS Halloween issue .. love this design!  It's so much fun to stitch ... I really love the pumpkin head on the N, too darn cute!

Thanks everyone for all your comments ... I love reading all of them!

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for finished finishes ...

Those ARE great finishes by Faye! Isn't it fun to see them in that way now, after stitching them all? I have a bunch to get done shortly! I am sick but hopefully it will all get done in time for MB! I actually like the colors and symmetry of the Halloween piece you are doing, tho I do not 'do' Halloween. Hugs!

I'm sure it feels great to have all of those pieces finished up, Michele--everything looks wonderful and your new start is so cute!

Your stitching looks great with Faye's finishes, Michele.
Each one is unique.

I love the new Halloween piece. I have had my eye on that one, too. I better get busy!

Natasha said...

Oh wow beautiful stuff!! I really need to send her some of my things. It would be nicer than them sitting in a poor box....

Gorgeous stitching and Faye's finishes are incredible.

Great finishing to your fine stitching! Need to look for that piece in the magazine. Seeing them outside the mag makes them a lot more appealing! Only a few days away... see you soon!

Melanie said...

Those are SUCH great finishes! I would have been squealing all over the place when I got those back. Such a great selection of stitchies too. Good job!

Sally said...

Wow what fantastic finishes!

Miss LindaLee said...

My goodness Michelle. This post is so inspiring. All the finished finishes makes me want to get out my finished pieces and actually frame them up or make those pretty pillows. I'm so glad I stopped in.
