A few finishes for me

Well, i have been able to finish stitching a couple pieces on my crazy 15 challenge and actually "finish" them for myself as well.
My ornament for January is My Favorite Time by Lizzie Kate. I had actually stitched this one in December but never finished it, but I am still counting it for my January ornie. :)

This next pillow finish i have I have posted on the Possibilities blog. All those pesky little stitched pieces you have just hanging around and never actually "finished" them into something, so this little guy got pulled out and made into a heart shaped pillow for me. This was a free chart but it was so long ago i do not remember who it was by. Not bad for my first heart shaped pillow, a bit wonky but not too bad for me. :)

This is A Little Love by Plum Pudding that i stitched up a couple years ago and also has finally found form in a pillow. That's a couple "possibilities" down and a whole LOT more to go. :)

Here is my Bent Creek's Love Happens Photobooth finished into a triangle cube. I really really like how this one turned out.

I also made a little pillow out of my I Will Stitch You in My Heart. The backing fabric has really cute little black crows and the same rusty colored flowers as the floss i used on it. perfect. :)

I have recently stitched a model for Crescent Colours and it was the Strawberry Cake from CCN's/CC's cake series chart packs. I stitched it and finished it up into a cube that looks like a slice of cake. I really like how this turned out, it was hard to send back to Sharon. LOL I can see stitching these over 1 and finishing them all the same way and displaying a an old cake plate. :)

Jeanne said...

I love all your finishes Karen and yes tell us more about how to do a triangle cube finish - it looks great! Sometimes it's hard to make ourselves sit down and do the finishing but so rewarding to see off your stitching.

Jeanne said...

P.S. I forgot you had a finishing service Karin - congrats on the new triangle cube - great invention!

Charlene ♥ SC said...

Hey, Karen. Wow - what great finishes you have... Love seeing all your goodies, and will be back!

Kath said...

What super finished and all that stitching and a new baby too! If you ever would like to trade the pattern of the Bent Creek Bunny with the brown and purple, I would be more than interested.
Your finishing is wonderful!
