Thought I would show you a couple of finishes that I did last week instead of creating a ginormous post on Sept. 15. This is the Black-Hearted Queen by sub rosa..
I've had this printed fabric in my stash for some time, so I started the Queen with this fabric in mind. The back is the same fabric and I glued the trim to the front and the fancy braided trim to the sides. After all, this is the Queen! I love glue!
The second finish is Holiday Samplings I or II, ha, can't remember! Designed by Homespun Elegance..
The light green cord seems to match the green in the design. Once again, I glued! I finished it off with the homespun check fabric and the rusty safety pin with the tinkly bells. They sound so nice!
That light green cord I found with all of these...
Yesterday found me at a secondhand store looking for work tee shirts. Didn't find any but look what I found! That Fanci That chart is like brand new and is perfect for the Americana SAL that I'm doing. The box with home Sweet home is a punch needle kit. It has been halfway done but it has the punchneedle and all the floss. I've been wanting to try punchneedle so I have no excuse! Below it are the cords I found. I've used the green one above and still have the pretty ivory one to use yet. And, ta da, the Belle Soie silks that were in a ziploc bag for $1.00!!! The colors are Carrot Cake and Lasagne, two skeins each. All of this came to $4.00, woohoo. The chart was $1.00 and the silks $1.00 and they will go against SFS. Great finds for me.
So I've been dabbling in woolfelt like I do every now and then. So far I've felted my wool, cut out the apples and satin stitched the seeds..
I have the green and red backgrounds to felt and cut and then to attach it all to the big round piece. I don't know if the designer sprayed hers with a coffee solution or it's just a photo thing but I may keep it this whitish color. The coming Fall always makes me want to work with wool. Like cross stitch, I also have a stash of wool and patterns but not as huge as xs!
I wish there were 28 hours in the day to do all that I want to!
Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you all a great week!
