A Finishing post...

Hello again! Did a bunch of finishes this past weekend, and thought I would share... I still have more to do... these were the easy ones! Without further ado...

Remember this Glory Bee freebie? I wanted it to be cheery...

I think I accomplished that!

This little Lizzie Kate piece got framed!

I love pink!

This little Lizzie Kate piece fit perfectly in this adorable metal stand that I found at a thrift store! Love love love it! I didn't take a snap of the back, but I glued a lovely piece of scrapbook paper back there, to cover the back's finishing

On the Bent Creek Bluebird Zipper piece, I tried a finish that I have seen numerous times, then dyed the rick rack to match the beak! Came out good!

My Just Nan Bluebird Sampler got a real pretty finish... This fabric was a perfect match, then I had the perfect green ribbon... and since there were a few beads in the piece I thought more along the edges would be pretty... so... there you go...
the back and side views...

and a closeup of the beading... found the perfect color beads, and used blue pins to secure them!

Liberty from Lizzie Kate got a simple cube finish...

a nice, modern patriotic fabric....

And another patriotic for next year--Bent Creek? I forget... already...

I like the look of this one...

This one is really tiny... just made a little filled pillow.

and the back...

On to Christmas... we can say I am early!! Really love this Reindeer--it is really cute! Just a pillow finish... filled with crushed walnut shells...

A cute, whimsical fabric on the back.

This is a Lizzie Kate finish, done last year ...
and the back... (can you tell I am getting bored of finishing?? I am repeating fabrics, rather than digging into my stash... ALTHOUGH, they DO go well... I really should finish as I go...)
This is Cromwell the snowman, by Trilogy (??)... done last year too...
And the back...
A modern tree ornament...The silver threads got kinds smashed when I ironed this one... fabric was REALLY wrinkled and stiff... hard to work with it.

And the back...

THIS is a piece by Erica Michaels that I just stitched last week... Haven't thought about a finish, yet! Really love it though...

I am working on another new piece, then I will pull out a WIP or two... do some working on them! Which one to do tho...I won't think about that right now...

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Hugs,
