Three More Finishes to Share

I tucked three more finishes under my stitching belt over the last couple weeks.

I know I said I was done doing Valentine stitching but couldn't resist this one after I saw the letters in an antique sampler.
Design: Love Pillow
Finished: 02-16-2010
Stitched on an 18ct. evenweave using DMC 4210 in floss and #5 Pearle Cotton. Backed & bordered with a burgundy cotton fabric.

I finally finished off another piece I stitched last year.
For St. Patrick's Day.
I just had to do something for this holiday since my heritage is Irish from my daddy's side.

Design: Little Bit O' Blarney
Designer: The Sweetheart Tree
Finished: 02-19-2010
Finished as a heart ornament using DMC #5 Pearle Cotton in 500, 503 & 504 for the twisted cording trim and the hanger. Backed with White felt.

One more heart finish (I think I'm into heart shapes right now) for St. Patrick's Day.

Design: Sun Catcher #2
Modified to be a bit different from the Valentine's Day heart in my last post.
Finished: 02-23-2010
Stitched on 22ct. Hardanger fabric from Charles Craft using DMC 4045 in floss and #5 Pearle Cotton. Finished with a silver Shamrock and twisted cording in DMC #5 - 500 & 4045, backed with green felt. Stitching backed with dark green satin.
