March Finishes

Hello Stitchers.  I hope everyone is
having an awesome stitching weekend.
I finished this Shamrock piece for a
woman i work with.  Her birthday is
March 17.  The pattern is from lizzie
Kate.  The fabric on the back is 
what the piece is sitting on.  Finished
with purple chenille trim to match
the purple in the hat.
 Hope by Lizzie Kate.  I was able
to find Anchors on the red
ribbon which match perfectly.
I made the red and white cording
to match.  This now is displayed in
my Americana room.
 Winter.  Now we had some
flurries here in TN on Friday.
March comes in like a Lion and out
like a Lamb.  This piece is now
added to the ornament collection.
 I purchased some needle minders and a
needle box.  These are little pieces of
art and i just had to share them with
you.  Her shop is on Etsy and she does 
amazing work.

 The first time in my life i have purchased
a full set of DMC.  Joanns had them on sale
3 for .99.  I also had a 25% off the whole
order coupon.  I earned a 150 gift
card from work.  I still have 20 dollars
left on that card.  I just love a bargain.
Only a stitcher could understand this
These guys were walking with me at the
park.  I hope everone is having a great
stitching weekend.

Such cute pieces. Love the sharock piece with perfect matching fabric. And how great to have that sea of floss!

Lovely finishes.
The Irish themed one is my favourite with that perfect matching fabric.

Brigitte said...

I love your choice of designs. And the stitching and finishing is perfect.
Is there anything more exciting than a whole bowl full of DMC threads? And yours were a real bargain.

Cindy, way to go on your finished pieces! I love the Hope piece by Lizzie Kate. Who is the Winter design by? The fabric used for the Shamrock piece is super. Great bargain on the threads! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Vickie said...

Such cute patterns you chose, and your finishing is superb Cindy! Woo hoo on the floss!

Justine said...

Lovely finishes as always Cindy. My favourite is Hope, I love the way you've co-ordinated all the details on the finish.
A fabulous floss bargain! Are you going to put them all on bobbins?!

Marilyn said...

Very cute finishes.
Every gal needs a full set of DMC, glad you got yours. :)

Great finishes and fantastic DMC purchase.

Thank you. I do not use bobbins. On my flosstube #1 video I show how I store my floss.

Lovely stitching and finishing. A wonderful bargain on the DMC skeins.

What a bunch of beauties you've shared with us today, Cindy--all perfectly finished, I might add :) I love the little ribbon you found with the anchors--it does add a perfect accent. And your two colored cording is wonderful, too...

Wow! That is great about the full set of DMC!! I do understand your excitement :)

Hope spring will be visiting Tennessee very soon--we were supposed to get more snow last night, but that didn't happen. I was hoping for a snow day from work, but, oh well...

Cindy I love that Anchor piece! You really scored with that ribbon. :) And your floss from JoAnn's, well I'd be doing a happy dance. blessings, marlene

Christina said...

Your finishes are lovely, Cindy. I saw your video on floss tube...the receipt for your DMC purchases made me laugh! The Monopoly board that you stitched for your son is incredible. I think I have the chart in my stash somewhere. Fingers crossed that your son catches your stitching bug. My 8 year old daughter is just starting to stitch. 😊 Christina (Whilst Iris Naps)
Ps - NO WAY are you in your 50s!!

In September through to part of October while staying with my friend in USA I shopped at JoAnn`s for DMCs but they were not at the price you paid but still lots cheaper than at home here. The receipt was very long. Happy Stitching.
