Pictures of finished pieces.

I've been really bad at posting pictures of finshed finished pieces. Here are a few that I've gotten back so far.  Some of these were from the fall. I have three more pieces at the finisher including one at the framer. 

This is the Princess and Me alligator that I got at Camp Allen. How it will be finished is still up in the air. 

The Bama Girl pillow is back! Hard to photgraph but the fabric is black on black with black fringe. Love the look! 

A valentine's pillow I got back in the fall. 

This is one of my first pieces ever completed. It was purchased at Meribee Needlearts near my grandma on FM 1960. I got this one back in the fall too. 

This is a Kathy Schenkle that I purchased at Bessie Kaldis' estate sale. 

The Charley Harper basset hound!!

With the rest of the pillows!

For my mom for Mother's Day!  A Melissa Shirley Scottish Santa!

My order from Fusion Beads came in!  They worked perfectly!!  

I also received a lovely millimeter measuring card and a tape measure. The site had tons of bead and colors and my order came quickly. The Tila beads, on the right, that I had originally were matte, but I thought the turkey deserved something a bit shiny!  The drop beads are for the lower right feather. 

Here are some pictures of the finished feathers!  Everything went quickly after the base stitching was in. 

Here are pictures of the last part of the turkey that I finished- the breast. 

This multi-canvas bird is off to the finisher!

Camp Allen Ornament.

Each one of the Camp Allen attendees has pledged to stitch an ornament for the Camp Christmas tree. This is what I picked out!
