Stitching delights

Patterns by hands on designs
I stitched zinc row twice.  The piece 
With the white chenille is going to
Be sent to a retreat called stitchcon, it will
Be used as a giveaway.  The other 
Piece is called tree farm.  I ran out of white
Chenille but it will be added once it is received.
The colors in this piece are so pretty.

Cindy, all your pieces that you stitched and finished are super. I love the smalls you stitched from Beth's Valentine fob chart. Is that a heart shaped dough bowl? I love it. Where did you find it? What lovely gifts you received!

I love to see all the different stitching and finishes.I especially like the motif with the red birds,

Justine said...

I enjoy your flosstube too Cindy. It's lovely to see what you're stitching and I love your accent! The Hands on Designs are my favourite here, that green colour really calls to me. I like how you finished the cardinals too, the berries and leaves are a very nice addition.

Oh my, so much eye candy I don't know where to start! I just love the Hands On design of the Tree farm. First time I'm seeing that pattern and I'll have to order it to do for a friend. Love your Chalkboard finish and the hens are just precious...I have to check out your floss tube site.
