New Finishes and Patterns

I have been busy like a beaver recently.  I'm trying to finish up projects instead of only finishing them half way like I usually do.  I guess when it comes to finishing I get mental blocks.  The only thing I can think of is framing and there are so many other ways.  In fact I have a ton of them saved on my Pinterest boards.  I just never think to look. LOL. 

Here are 2 finishes that aren't actually framed.

This is called "Welcome Spring."  My awesome stitcher Reeta stitched up the sample for me.  I decided it would look cute on a coffee stained green bag.  I have it hanging on one of my peg racks.  I also have the pattern ready and up for sale if you are interested.

The second finish is a punch needle.  This is my own design.  I don't normally decorate red, white, and blue but thought it was fitting for this one.   It will be for sale once I get a few things finished up.

Steve is working on a new frame for me because I had to keep moving this one in my normal hoop frame and it wasn't working so well.  I can't wait because I will be able to punch needle as well as rug hook on it.

I hope everyone has a great Easter weekend!  I am off on a holiday. Can you believe it? lol.  I am battling a nasty UTI but that hasn't stopped me from stitching.  I am working on another Redware type cross stitch pattern.  I think it would look good as a punch needle pattern too!  Until next time my friends.  Remember the real reason of Easter :-)

Pin It
