A couple of photos of recent finishes





Firstly, 'The most Patterns - 2nd time around' - Still stitched on hand-dyed aida - more a creamy yellow than appears here - using varigated and hand-dyed threads - I also used beads for the halo. This one will be finished into a wall hanging and the original one will possibly be finished into a pillow for a friend. (No names in case they read here so ...nyah-nyah!!!)


The next was a quick stitch - a freebie from Plum Street Samplers - I used Caron Waterlillies (hyacinth?) on hand dyed aida again. I also changed the wording to make what will be the finished item more compact. Once again, this is to be a gift for a friend!

I love the changes you made! It looks fantastic! :) And that first pattern is so funny - and so true. Oh no, I need to get stitching faster, that's for sure.
