A Giftie And A Finish

Hi friends! Rainy days here all week. Causes extra pain. puh! So I have been completing finishing work on some smalls I stitched up. First I would like to show you a birthday gift I received yesterday from sweet Maggee.
What a wonderful pillow in pink and chocolate colors. LOVE that combination. Thank you Maggee. :) If you look closely you can see the rain drops on the peonies. ;)

You may recall this poodle freebie from Kissy Cross?
Ta da! It has been stitched up for weeks, but I did not get around to the finishing til yesterday. This is stitched on 25ct white linen, two over one. I just love it! I did change many of the color shades. And well, I just needed to make the flowers and the letters pink too. ;) Don't you just love the backstitching in Mabel and Henry's coats? Love the texture it adds.
I was so happy to use one of my vintage poodle fabrics for the back. =)
'Rendezvous In The Park' was such fun for me to stitch. Thank you Kirsten for this adorable tribute to my Mabel and Henry. ♥
I will be back soon with more finishing to share with you all. Thank you for stopping by. Leave me a comment if you like. I love to respond to them all. You brighten my day. =)

Have a fabulous day my friends!

Stitching and finishing and praying,
Vickie
All pooped out after their Rendezvous in the Park. ;)
