Two Finishes ~ November, 2, 2010

Election Day…awoke with rain here in the Tennessee Delta.  Temps have been in the mid-60’s and boy does it look and feel like a winter day!  Thank goodness HunnyB got the heavy blankets out Sunday, as I have been huddled up under one most of the day (after going to the polling place and exercising my right to vote!)

Today I worked on 2 kits I have had for many years, which were boxed up in my sewing room.  They are Stitcher’s Surprise monthly projects from my LNS ~ “Stitcher’s”.

The first one finished is:

Hearts and Hands for America.  A cute banner stitched on 10 CT. Betsy Ross Wheat color Lambswool using Weeks Dye Works Over Dyed threads.  At the bottom of the point is attached a small American Flag button.

WishWinter.StitchersSurpriseThen I continued with the Stitcher’s Surprise kits with “Wish Winter”.  It is stitched on 20 ct. Over Two White Valerie.
The fabric has a silver shimmer thread woven in.  The threads are Weeks Dye Works for the lettering and Blue Shimmer Ribbon Floss for the snow flakes.  There are 3 ceramic buttons by Debbie Mum attached.  This piece will be finished as a flange pillow using the shown blue snowflake fabric.

That’s all I have for 2day!

The first one was perfect to stitch for voting day! I can't wait to see a pic of your sparkly snowflake pillow when you're done!
