A little finishing..
I finished a few pillows the other day and took a couple of quick pics. I really like the way they came out. Finishing is such fussy sewing but the result is so worth the fussing. This is a Birds of a Feather canvas. I used contrasting florals for the border and a bright coral dot for the back.
The second pillow is the Workbasket barn pillow. I backed it with a brown velvety fabric. Loved stitching this one, so many little details.
The third finish is a counted canvas piece. I used the same brown fabric for this one. The button in the middle is made of polymer clay and is really intricate.
And, last but not least, a little needlepoint belt buckle. Quick, fun to stitch, and easy to finish. This one is for a class that I'll be teaching locally.
That's it for accomplishments that I have photographed lately. I've knitted and sewn a few things that I'll post soon. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
I am a needlework designer, and have been doing business as M DESIGNS for the past 14 years. I am blessed with a loving husband and two wonderful children, who understand my obsession with all things stitchy. Most days, I can be found with my kids and the dogs, creating all manner of things and enjoying our busy life.
