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.

    The Quaker Friendship book is such a beauty. I love the unusual colour of it. You finished it so perfectly!
    I also love Lavon’s bellpull, it looks gorgeous. And Jana’s stocking is a real heirloom. She must have stitced ages on it.
    You were doing some awesome finishing on each of the ürpjects!

    Your finishing work is wonderful as usual! Hope you are getting some spring up your way – the snow is melting quite rapidly here and I’m so glad about that.
