A Day Of Finishing !

Made this little bloom design into a pin pillow. Added a few buttons and a pin, filled it with walnut shells and it's done. Click on any of the photo's for a better view.
Next up was the ruler keep. I sewed on some cranberry colored wool, the long piece is where I will put the little ruler and the small square is for pins. I added the cording to finish it off. The picture below is the other side. Still haven't found the ruler. May have to get another one.

I finshed the LHN Bluebird design and I will show it after I have a frame made for it. This is the next little design I did this week. It's by Drawn Thread. I will have pop it in and out frame made so when I do the other months, I can just switch them out. This design is small (about 21/2 inches by 61/2 inches) and will be perfect put on a book shelf amongst the books.
Enough of the little stuff, I have gone back to PS June. It's done on 32 ct. Lambswool Jobelan using DMC.
I want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with Japan. A terrible earth quake and so many lives lost. Cheryl's son is currently working in Japan ministering to our servicemen. His area was not hit. Thankfully. It was very hard on Cheryl until she heard from him.

As always, thanks for all the great feedback. I appreciate all the comments. Until next time...Happy Stitching! Deborah

Woohoo! Talk about a post of eye candy. Everything looks great! You've been busy working on so many things, and getting so much of them finished. YGG! I really love the Bloom pin cushion.

I'm glad that Cheryl's son is okay. It is terrible to see what has happened in Japan, so close after the tragedies in NZ. My prayers are with them.
