Finally, Some Finished Stitching

Being in less of a stitching mood and more of a sewing mood does have it's advantages.
I managed to get three pieces finished.

" Alphabet Sampler Tree"
This was a free pattern you can find here:
Stitched on 32ct linen using DMC variegated threads.
Finished as a quilted wall hanging.

"Scissors Heart"
Stitched on 32ct linen using DMC #115
Finished as a medium sized pin pillow.

"I Love A Country Collection"
Stitched on 14ct aida using DMC.

I finished this piece several years ago (2006) and planned on entering it in the local fair so I framed it in a hurry using duct tape.
I started getting some discoloration that was peeking beyond the frame, so I went ahead and cut it down this year and made a quilted wall hanging out of it. Much more country looking this way, I used cotton calico and denim from an old pant leg.
I never did enter it in the fair.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for leaving a piece of your self behind in the wonderfully kind comments you post. I do appreciate each and every one of them.

Take Care & Happy Stitching .... Sandy
