It's been a busy month...lots going on but I decided I needed to finish up some things so I could enter them in the state fair. I got a few things framed...First was my Blackwork Kingfisher...I just love him!! This is by Lesley Teare and can be found in her shop sold as a PDF.
Next was the Melbourne Sampler by Jean Farish. I really enjoyed stitching this and though it was a bit tricky to get mounted, I am so pleased with how it turned out.
Anyone who knows me knows I love Patriotic stitching. I did finish a few pieces this summer and then went on a hunt to finish 4th of July. I was walking through Hobby Lobby and spied this candle holder. Isn't it amazing? Well, the top was a little too small for the piece, so I flipped it upside down and finished it on the bottom...shhh don't tell anyone hahaha. I love how it turned out!!
I also finished Betsy's tart. After changing the colors I wasn't sure I liked my color way....but after I popped her in the tart pan, I truly love the changes now. Isn't it amazing how things change once you fully finish them?
Last is this little freebie I found on Pinker and Punkin Quilting blog. I left off the border and hopped it into this little dish I found at a thrift store. Perfect coloring isn't it?
Guess that's all my finishing for now. Off to look for something more to get finished, I'm on a roll!! Happy Stitching...er...um finishing?
