A Bunch Of Finishes.

It's been a very busy couple of weeks. I have done a lot of stitching and finishing. One day Cheryl and i went to the fabric store where we found the new spring line of fabric. So many fat quarters, so little time. We then went to a store that has a ton of trim and came away with many different options. The next day we spent it making all the following pillows. One for me and one for her. The day after we made the pillows, we made Valentine cookies. I didn't take any pic's of the fabric and trims before we started using them but you will see some of the fabric in the following picture's. First up is a freebie by Paulette. I think the Hare's deserve the pom-pom trim. So cute.
The next three pillows are by SB designs. Picture Be My Valentine turned to the right. These work up so quickly and I think that they turned out pretty good.






This is Hop by LK. We just made it into a little ornament. I say that like that was the intention but it wasn't. I cut the fabric so close I was surprised that Cheryl could do anything with it.

I also made this little guy for me, as well as, for Jackie. St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays. I knew that I had to have one of these.

That's enough for tonight. Again, I want to thank everyone for the great response to my giveaway. I do appreciate all of my followers and there will be more giveaways in the future. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah

Gorgeous finishes! What lovely bright colours in them all.

Sally said...

Your finishes are gorgeous! Love the Easter Blessings one though. Beautiful colours.

Heidi said...

Well, Deborah...I am voting you as the fastest stitcher in cyber space. Everything is beautiful but I think that pompom trim just makes you want to hop about like an Easter bunny. I have always wanted to make the PSS freebies up and put them all together in a little quilt. One day...

You must have the best dressed couch in town with all these pillows. :-)

Hugs from Holland ~
