A couple of finishes

Thought I should do a post and show a couple of my recent finishes.

Plum Street Samplers - In Friendship stitched on 32 count Patriots Brew with overdyed threads
Started 9-23-17
Finished 9-25-17

This cute little pillow was the pattern we received from Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers at the Dyeing to Stitch retreat last September.  I've had this stitched for a bit and finally FFO'D it.

I used velveteen from Lady Dot Creates on the back.  Boy let me tell you I love that velveteen!!  It was very nice to work with.  Highly recommend it:) 

Plum Street Samplers - Soul Sisters
Stitched on 32 count Patriots Brew with overdyed threads.

This was the second piece we received from Paulette at retreat.  
I am preparing a frame for this piece and hope to FFO this very soon.

Well there is a quick update for now.  I am off to get some project bags made now:)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
