Two finishes to share.....

I have been stitching a bit - and wanted to share my two recent finishes. First is a cute freebie by Paulette at Plum Street Samplers
I finished it as a small pillow (and yes, I do know the fabric side isn't as big as the stitched side - that was on purpose...). I like how it turned out. The linen is Lakeside 32 ct Pearled Barley & the finishing fabric is from Blackbird's Harvest Home collection.

Next is a Blackbird Designs Stocking from the December book. It's for someone in the Monthly Ornament exchange I'm in. I sent it yesterday but since she has no idea who is sending to her, it's okay to post it now! :-) Sure do hope she likes it. It's on an R&R fabric (Cafe Kona maybe?) using the GAST/WDW it called for. I think she will like it (fingers crossed anyway)!

That's all for the moment, but I have seen some WONDERFUL new releases from Market that I can't wait to get my hands on! :-)

Thanks for stopping by & Happy Stitching!!

I love how you finished the pillow and I'm envious of your ornament swap partner. Your stocking is wonderful.

I LOVE the way you finished your pillow!! I didn't know the 2 sides were suppose to be the same size. I like it better "uneven" if you want to call it that. I think it gives it a nicer look! Good job!
Your stocking is beautiful! Your partner is lucky to receive it :)

Hi Amy and THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I just love the BBD stocking that I received from you for the ornament exchange - it is even more beautiful in person. The workmanship is wonderful.

Love the little pillow you did also.

Again Thanks -- Roberta

The pillow is charming! I like the way you used the ribbon in your finishing. I am sure your exchange partner will adore the stocking.
