A Dandy Finish, plus...

I finished a WIP that was languishing in my stash, called Dandy Dreams by Silver Creek. I am going to TRY to find a compatible fabric for a pillow frame, but it is also just under 5 X 7 so maybe I will get an unfinished framed and doll it up! Actually that sounds better... so here it is:



And I also finished a smallish patriotic piece that will get finished this weekend, and added to my collection, by Twisted Threads called Itty Bitty America.



Now, I didn't stitch it over one...just because I didn't feel like it. And I changed it a bit... stitcher's prerogative...

That's it for now... Don't forget to tell me your likes and dislikes... just in case a RAK is calling your name...

Hugs,

Maggee

Congratulations on both finishes, Maggee! Of the two, I really like the Itty Bitty America! Did you use the charted colors?

Love 'em both Maggee - I don't need either of 'em. Very nice work - I do like a good old red, white, and blue stitch. The fabric for your dandy sttitch is great too.

Lovely stitches Maggee!! I have dandy dreams laungishing in my wip pile, I only have the dandy lion left to go, maybe I should get it finished!! Itty bitty America is very cute and looks lovely over 2 :)

Denise said...

Love your stitches! I finished my Dandy Dreams as a pillow and put real whispy trim on it. Now, your America -- it's going on my to buy list for Tuesday!

Anne said...

Congrats on your finish Maggee!! Dandy Dreams is such a sweet design that makes me think of those summer days when you pick a fluffy dandelion and blow on the fluff, watching it float over to the neighbour's pristine dandy-free lawn....!! Great little patriotic finish too!

Hmm, you already RAK'd me lovely charts so I'm good :D Hugs!

I wouldn't have done over one either! I think a standing frame would be perfect for Dandy Dreams.

Linda said...

Beautiful finishes! Itty bitty America is particularly cute. Patriotic designs are always great since you can display them year-round. Happy Stitchin' weekend!

What lovely finishes I also love the Silver Creek one.

Melanie said...

Very nice!!!
I've always wanted to stitch that Silver Creek pattern.

Carol said...

Very cute finishes, Maggee! Good luck finding a frame for the first one, but it would look great as a small pillow, too :)

Peggy Lee said...

O now you know I am in love with that patriotic piece! I'm going to have to look that pattern up.
Sometimes the shades of red, white and blue don't quite go together but this one is a winner for sure.

Great finishes! I have seen the Silver Creek pattern before and it has called my name. I think I need to add that one to the stash for future stitching!

Nice projects! Look forward to seeing your finish choices!

These designs are so sweet Maggee. I wonder if I have itty bitty America in my stash. I'll have to go look b/c I like it.

Lovely finishes

Two lovely finishes, Maggee. I love all things historical and definitely love Americana designs - Australiana designs always seem so twee with kangaroos and cockatoos!
