Finishes for ME!

Well i have a few finishes that i stitched for ME! and a couple that are actually "finished". LOL

Here is Halloween by La D Da from this years JCS Halloween issue. I stitched this one on 28ct vintage autumn gold over 1 using WDW Charcoal and Terra Cotta. I used the whip stitch (biscournu finish technique) to make this into a little pillow. I used the pack of needles next to it for scale.

I have also stitched and finished up Salem Witch by Primitive Needle. I stitched her on a scrap piece of fabric over 2 using DMC. She is finished into a pinkeep, the pins are just straight pins with different beads added to the pins. i like how she came out.

Practice Sampler by Milady's Needle i finished stitching about a month ago, just never took a pic of it. I really like how this one turned out and will probably frame it in a black frame or a mahogany color one. I stitched this one on 40ct v. autumn gold over 2.

Yesterday while having a bad day healthwise i had plenty of time to stitch so i stitched up this cute little breast cancer freebie. It is Hope by DMC, i stitched it on 30ct off white linen using Strawberry Shortcake by Carries Creations Threads and dmc black. This will probably become a pinkeep. This is a very quick stitch, just a few hours to do.

On the exchange front, i rec'd my fair & square halloween round from Jill F. last week. I really like the squares she stitched for me and am thinking pinkeep for them. Thanks Jill!

The next exchange i rec'd today from Kirsi in Finland. This is from the Lizzie Kate Exchange Blog the 2nd Round. Kirsi stitched a few different pieces from different designs and made 3 different finishes. I LOVE them and they are already in the craft room! Thank y ou sooooo much Kirsi!

And last but not least, a newer pic of the pups! this is from the other day when i actually was able to get them to sit still for a minute for a pic. LOL They are getting huge, almost as big as mama. Bella is on the left and Fannie is on the right.
