I spent last Friday working on finishing a few stitched pieces. I try to save things up and finish them all on the same day because I don't have a designated area in my home to sew, cut or glue things. Once I take it out I want to do all of my finishing so I can put everything away when I am finished. Someday I hope to have a CRAFT room but right now all of those rooms are filled with boys.
The first thing is a tooth fairy pillow for my niece. She phoned me to say that she had a wiggly tooth and wanted a pillow like the one I made for her brother. The pattern is from Sweetheart tree and has her favorite color purple in it.
I showed the stitched piece a while ago and decide to make it into a pincushion. I edged it with beads to match and love the way it turned out. The colors scream spring to me.
Another spring pillow. Please be mindful that I am an amateur at sewing and there are definitely imperfections but the more I practice the better I will get, right? Design by The Stitcherhood using DMC floss stitched on remnant Antique Green.
Lastly, after all of that finishing I decided to try someting new. I started this Counted canvas piece on Friday evening and finished it Sunday. Talk about a quick stitch. I love the way it turned out and I can't wait to do another one. I have a few projects in the pipeline right now but as soon as I finish them I will definitely to another Counted Canvas. This design is from Nancy's Needle titled Two Cabins. I LOVE IT!
I hope you are all having a great time with your stitching projects. Time to jump over to your blogs and catch up! Happy Sttiching!
