Speaking of - I showed this ornament in my last blog post but I finally got around to putting on the hanger.
duClay EGA chapter "taste of " program. I know it's a finish I will use again!
Next is a gorgeous pillow that DF and finisher extraordinaire Faye - the Carolina Stitcher finished for me. This is Mirabilia Mermaid initials spelling out M E L. My dear dad stitched these for me, didn't he do a super job. The trick was getting them to play nicely together as the colors are different from each other and the L is a larger size (sigh) Faye really handled those issues well and I picked out some pretty batik that pulled the colors all together I feel. In my delusional wooley thoughts - I was going to do all of them and put in a wall hanging- NOT ! these things are as much work or more than the Prairie Schooler alphabet of which I have the A stitched, framed and hanging on my wall. They are indeed beautiful and I would not deter anyone from stitching them or at least one!
Next up is another challenge piece for our EGA chapter I finished this past weekend. Shepherds Bush Moonlight Garden. It is mounted in a cute tray with ravens carved into the ends. It was only a couple of weeks of missing Halloween but I have it out on a table thru the weekend. It will go into hibernation when I bring out the Christmas stuff hopefully this weekend.
Here is the raven carving. Really cute little tray by Retromantics I think is the company SB uses.
