Some more finishing

I did some finishing yesterday. Here are the results:

Shepherd's Bush--All Season's Fob. This was stitched on 28 count jobelan with the threads from the kit. I paired this fob up with Olivia--a Gingher designer series scissors.
This stitched up pretty quick I started it on March 12th and finished it on the 13th.

Here is the view of the back of the fob.

I really like how the edge was finished off. It took a bit to get the hang of stitching the ric-rack on but I love the results. I would do this finish again.

I have seen the pendants from the Bee's Knees that came out at Market and I decided to stitch and make my own. I stitched this on 40 count linen with Belle Soie Rose of Sharon.
Then I soldered my stitching between two pieces of glass. I have made similar pendents with other cross stitch designs. I do like making these. I have also used old family photo's too.

I decided that I should put my last name initial on the back. I am really happy with how this turned out.

Here is a photo of my grandparent's that I made into a pendant. This picture was taken in 1930 just before they were married. I just love this picture. It make such a nice heirloom.

Since I was doing some of my glass soldering I made a scissors fob too.

You can't see it here but I stamped the definition of Handmade on this piece of glass. I am not very good at picture taking!!! But you get the idea.

I stitched this Lizzie Kate--Strawberry Sampler last July. Finally finished into a pin pillow. I should have gotten a picture of the back because the fabric was pretty cute.

Lastly I saw a tutorial on how to make a self binding receiving blanket, so I had to get it a try. I think it turned out pretty cute. I will be making some more of these. This tutorial came from the Missouri Star Quilt Company on their Youtube channel. If you like to quilt you should check it out.

Well I am off to do some more stitching or sewing.

Thanks for stopping by and I want to thank everyone who has left good will comments about my ankle. I must say it is getting better:)
