Surprise Finishes

Yes, I have surprised myself and done two complete finishes. The first is a pin keep, what you say there are no pins, well as soon as I get some suitable ribbon, there will be pins. The second is a pillow. Both pictures were taken with the items on their backing fabric. I am very pleased that I took the plunge into finishing and will be doing so with more of my work. I have also finished a LHN thread pack Peaches, stitched on 28ct. Lugana Autumn Blush.

2 Finishes

Here are two Country Cottage Needlework designs I have just finished up. Sunflower is stitched on 28ct linen called Blue Boy (I think). Peace is from the 2007 JCS Ornaments. I know it is stitched on 32ct Lakeside Linen but have no idea what the color is. I had ordered a sampler pack and there are no names on the package or the linens. Such a shame too, as I really like some of the colors.
