Finishing Time

I was very pleased to get a few recent stitching projects out on Saturday afternoon and spend a bit of time finishing them off.  

One of the projects I made up into a small pillow was this lovely pattern offered late last year by Paulette from Plum Street Samplers, finished into a small pillow.


I used one of my favourite backing fabrics and sewed on a rouched ribbon edging.


Another recently completed piece is Cottage Garden Needleworks Garden Girl, stitched last year and made into a simple wall hanging.


This is going to be sent off shortly to my friend's little girl for her 2nd birthday :)

Beautiful finishing!!!! I always think I should be doing some finishing but then I tend to opt for stitching time instead!

Perfect backing fabric for Paulette's piece! The ribbon also goes very well! I have yet to try a project on black fabric. Maybe one day... I like that CCN piece. Don't think I have seen it done up before. Hugs!
