Another Finish(or Two)!

Finish No. 1: Fair & Square Exchange piece for Dani. A small packet coming your way soon, Dani. Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed stitching it!

Finish No. 2: In keeping with my 2007 focus on finishing my stitched pieces, I decided to fish out and finish a piece I stitched 2 years or so ago.  It’s Sweet Valentines by The Sweetheart Tree – an easy to stitch but charming pattern. The chart came with the most beautiful heart shaped ‘I love you’ charm. In keeping with the theme, I embellished the tassel with a white shell heart-shaped bead and some clear beads. I think I’m starting to get the hang of curved needles, lacing and cording… took me much less time with this one.

Happy stitching to all my fellow stitcher/bloggers! 😉

    Pretty finish! And your cord hanger looks great at the top… that’s the part that always gives me trouble 🙂

    Hi, Monique – I also had a bit of a challenge. I made a smaller cord and passed it through the cord around the ornament before I stitched it to the ornament. Hope that helps…
