A finish!

Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all of the wonderful comments left on my last post.  It was my 100th post and I thought it was perfect to have a Valentine's Giveaway.   If you haven't entered you have until midnight Feb 7th. Please comment only on the giveaway post. I will draw the winner on the 8th.  Good luck.  Below is a picture of my latest finish.  I am NOT sewing machine savvy so please don't look for the imperfections.  I stitched Blackbird Designs Bird in Hand on 28ct Autumn Blush with GAST in Cranberry.  After stitching it I decided it would make a cute pillow, so I found some backing fabric, ric rac for the edging and well there you  have it.  Not exactly straight but still kinda cute.  I like how the backing has leaves similar to the ones in the design.  It's a gift.  I hope the recipient likes it!  Happy Stitching everyone!!

A great pick for the backing. I think your finish is wonderful, would never guess you aren't savy on the sewing machine. I love the pattern.

Gorgeous finish Nataly. I'm sure the recipient will love it! And one of my many mantras is; Does it look straight, in a snow storm, with 50 miles per hour winds, riding on a horseback? then it's straight enough! LOL.

That really gives you a liberated feeling to proceed and enjoy all aspects of your creativity.
