Finishing Update

It was a busy start to the New Year finishing wise!  Lots of lovely pieces came in and were sent winging on their way home.  This first piece waited a bit for some attention, but look at it now:

116_1684 116_1683 116_1682116_1679  This is Cheryl’s Ackworth Quaker Friendship Book from an RR we were involved in during 2007 – 2008.  Cheryl chose the most unusual shade for her fabric – I just love that ruby red, and her book was gorgeous!

This fabulous stocking was stitched by Jana – I love the blues in this one.  She sent along  a blue velvet for the backing, and a lovely red for the lining.  Won’t this be a treasure?


Finally, the last piece was stitched by Lavon during a stitching retreat – the DMC highlights is so striking in this piece:


The stash diet is going well – friends have kept the mail carrier busy with trade packages, so I have not felt any withdrawal pangs!  I did rescue a bit of yarn in February – so have another $4.50 to add to my total.
