Two Little Finishes

This was a good week for finishes for me. Both still need to be put together but the stitching is done. Here they are.....



This is the "NOEL Sampler" by The Prairie Schooler. It is a little free design that I did on Lambswool Linen with Crescent Colours thread. It is the same fabric and thread I used to do the "NOEL" that I'm going to make into a pillow. I wasn't sure how to finish it but someone suggested a little flat fold and I think I will try my hand at doing that.



"hop!"

Yesterday I finished stitching the "hop!" fob/needlecase by Just Nan. This one is for Deborah Markham and I'll start another one for myself sometime next week after I finish making this one into it's final form. I also need to finish off the matching tin so I can get them into the mail to her. These are limited edition kits and I am so lucky that Deborah found them, every place I looked was sold out and I had given up hope of being able to do them. The next in the series will be released in June and is called "sizzle" (sure fits our Summer weather here). Nan hinted in her newsletter what it will be, bees and ladybugs with really cute red ribbon. Can't wait to see that one.


Today is bump day qualifying for the Indy 500 so you can guess what I'll be watching while stitching on "Queen". It is just too hot to go out today, we are having record heat and it will be at least 103 today with it getting hotter as the week goes on. Grrrrrrrr I'm not ready for these temps yet.

Until next time......Happy Stitching

The little sampler looks great. I think it will make a great flat fold. The scissor fob looks so cute!

Both of your finishes look great, Rene. I can't wait to see what the sampler ends up being.
