More Finishes

 Hi friends! Let me show you what new finishes I have.

🩰La Pirouette is complete! I finished it as a flat, little ornament/pinkeep. 

I stitched this one over two on 45 count white Florence linen with DMC 824 & 817. I found this pattern on the Antique Pattern Library. I think this ballerina is so sweet.

We went to Mom's recently and she had found some very old pictures. Among them were a couple of me in my leotard in my bedroom, perhaps after a class? I must have been thirteen years old. I think the picture will stay out on my dresser shelf with La Pirouette.🥰


🐄Statehood Splendor Series 41st Wisconsin🧀by Thread Milk Designs. 

I stitched this two over two with VMSS Valentine Red on Colour & Cotton Warm Sienna 32ct linen. The finishing fabrics and the vintage button are from my stash.

Would you like to stitch this Wisconsin pattern? If so, you need to be a sidebar follower of mine and leave a comment on this post stating you would like the pattern. This giveaway is open to all of my followers world wide. You do need to leave a comment WITH your email address though. I cannot give this pattern to someone who I cannot contact! I will draw a name on Monday September 25th.

I am now stitching the November mini stocking.

 So we may boldly say:

“The Lord is my helper;

I will not fear.

What can man do to me?”  Hebrews 13:6

Little Flossie is 6 months months old now. She is getting spayed on Wednesday this week.

I hope you have a wonderful week my friends! Thank you for stopping by and leaving me comments. You are the only reason I keep this blog going. 

Stitching and praying,

Your little ballerina dancer turned out cute. Oh and you once did ballet too, it's great to still have such a beautiful old picture.
A great finish on your WI picture.
I hope your little Flossie survives the small procedure well.
Enjoy your weekend,

I am SO behind on reading blogs, Vickie--was helping my son move for much of the month! Love your little ballerina and how cute that you were also a ballerina once. Not me--I have two left feet. Ha ha!

Your Wisconsin finish is very cute, too. Enjoy these last days of September ♥
