A Couple Of Odd Finishes

I was going through my "stitched" container and found two pieces to finish off.

I stitched this piece way back in the late 70's or early 80's and decided to finish it and let it see the light of day.
An odd thing I noticed about this early piece is that I used to cross my stitches to the right /, but somewhere along the years I changed and started crossing them to the left \. Strange how things can change overtime and you never notice.

Design: "A Taste of Southern Living"
Stitched on 14ct. Band-Aida using DMC threads.

I stitched this Hardanger Heart not long after I made the needle roll that matches it.
I intended to make a matching needle book with it but noticed that I stitched it on the wrong half of the fabric, so it sat for almost a year waiting for me to finish it.
Hardanger Heart designed by me.
Stitched on 32ct. Zweigart linen using DMC Color Variations.

Well, that's all for today stitcher's.
I am stitching, though not much, one BAP for my DH and a smaller freebie sampler. I think I have fallen in love with the alphabet samplers.
Been trying to get some stitching organizers and pincushions all stitched up, but it seems like I always need another fabric to finish a piece, oh well, I'll get there soon.

Take Care Everyone ...... Sandy


  1. Lovely finishes. :)

    That is interesting that you changed the direction of your stitches.

  2. Sandy, both are beautiful!

  3. Nice Finishes!
    sounds like you need to make a list and then....Time to go Shopping!!!!!! Happy Stitchin!

  4. Beautifull!!!!

  5. Two beautiful pieces of work. How satisfying to finish the piece you stitched all that time ago, it looks lovely.

  6. Isn't it funny how we make unnoticed changes in life. What a find after so many years, and so pretty. I would be afraid to look in my bins.
    Be always in stitches.

  7. What a nice feeling to have at last finished them.
    Two lovely pieces.
