Finishing and TUSAL

Got together with Cheryl last week and did some finishing. Made three little pillows. The hares are done quite simply and the gathering basket one has some ric-rac on the edge. I like that one alot.

Finished the needle book like it was showed. Below is the picture showing the inside fabric. I love green and lavender together. It's a tri fold. I have a pair of scissors and a pack of needles in it.



These are the cutest. Very tiny and they are hanging on a small silver tree.

Last but not least is my TUSAL. You can see a bunch of green from 13 Colonies.
You need to check out Edgar's blog (Blacksheep). He is having a great giveaway! Speaking of giveaways, you can go to my last post leave a comment there for my giveaway. I need to thank everyone who comments on any of my posts. I appreciate that you read my blog and take the time to comment. Until next time...Happy Stitching! Deborah

Lisa said...

You have some lovely finishes there, most I seem to manage in a day is 1 finish, I'm finishing challenged you could say lol.

Lynn said...

What sweet pillows! I'm a big fan of the Hares but I think that the BBD pillow is my favourite! I love the trim you've used for it. I haven't tried using that kind of trim. I'm not quite sure how to work it as I'm stitching up the pillow.
I'm rather partial to the colours in that needlebook too.
All in all I'd say it was an excellent finishing day!
