Valentine's Day finish and more

The other day i was looking at Vonna's blog and she stitched this adorable freebie from PrimitiveBettys called Oh Sweet Valentine and i just had to stitch it. It was a very quick stitch that i stitched up on Friday and last night made it into a primitive looking pillow (at least i think so). I stitched this one on 28ct Antique Sand Castle linen using VC Birds Bird Feathers #4107 and WDW Brick.

I also have my only progress on my Beatrix Potter Sampler. I am using 36ct edinburgh coffee dyed/baked fabric for this piece, not too dark of a piece and using GAST Deep Sea. I love how the colors pop on this fabric and just wish the pic would do it more justice. I am stitching this piece over 1 on the 36ct so not alot of progress, a little at a time.

Also i heard that Ellen has rec'd her LK exchange from me on the HOE board. So here is Wear A Smile by LK that i made into a beanbag pillow thingy for her. I changed up the borders using smyrna, rice and eyelet stitches and really like how they turned out.

well, i have a bunch of other finishes but can't show them until they land at their new homes.

Going to get some housecleaning done and then off to a Superbowl Party this afternoon. GO CARDS!!!!!

Yep - we're pulling for the Cards, too! Your finishes are beautiful - what is this with all these speedy stitchers??? Love your primitive pillow!

Maren said...

Wow, I love the colors on your BP Quaker (it doesn't matter how many times I've spelled that out, I always, always, always type it Quacker first). The picture may not do it justice, but that blue on the coffee swirled fabric is wonderful!

These are so pretty.

Very disappointed here that the Cards lost.... but boy it was a good game.

Vonna said...

Your valentines pillow is darling! And so is your L*K exchange piece! Very nicely done!
BP is SUPER too! love the fabric!

Brigitte said...

The Valentine pillow is so lovely. A great way to finish this design, it just undertlines the primitive style of the motifs.
BP is coming along great. And I'm sure that Ellen loved her little LK cushion.

Michele said...
