A few finishes

Here are couple of Shepherd's Bush window pane pillows I finished  for a friend.  I left off the cording around the edge of the pillow. 

I thought they turned out nice if I do say so myself.

Now here are some of the ornaments that I've stitched up recently but now are totally finished with their backing fabrics.

LHN ornament from a previous JCS ornament issue.  This is for my mom this year.  I can post it here as my parents don't have a computer.  I just love the cording I made for it.  And I just realized I forgot to take a picture of the backing fabric. 

PS ornament for my dad.  I am soooo pleased with how I managed to cut out the shape of the board for the ornament to be mounted onto it.   I had seen it stitched at a friend's house so it inspired me to cross stitch this one for my dad this year.  I always seem to stitch him a deer ornament for Christmas.

Some more Prairie Schooler finishes.  These 2 are from Old World Santa's II book.

Here is a ornament from BBD For My Friend book.  I just FELL in love with this little stocking ornament.  I found THE PERFECT backing fabric for it!!!!  Too cute if I say so myself.

I have some more ornaments that are finished but I will save those for next time.  I hope to take a picture of my new SAL with friends.  I will go ahead and tell you what it is.  It is from My Big Toe and it is The Apostle's Creed.  Hopefully we'll have some sun tomorrow for me to take a picture of it as well as my The Scarlet Letter Mary Baker project. 

Until next time.....HAPPY STITCHING!


  1. Your finishes look awesome. ;-) I love the fabric with the deer for your backing. I have some of that same fabric

  2. Wow, such lovely finishes. The PS ornaments are just darling. And you found a very creative way to finish the Shepherd's Bush designs.

  3. Gorgeous! I love them all but especially the window pane ones. And your shaped mounting looks brilliant.

  4. Very nice. Great job on all of them.

  5. Brenda, your finishes are all beautiful. I really love the deer one (and the backing fabric) you created for your Dad.
