Painted Stitcheries Finished

I finished two of my stitcheries today.
I tend to make things without thinking and then I have mistakes, lol.
The first one, was with the border. The green was supposed to be on the sides and I did it backwards.
This one I sprayed the design first, so I didn't antique the border.

And where do I get my ideas for the add ons? Those come after I finish the piece and realize my fabric is puffy, so I added words and a heart to tack it down better;)



The second one I used pink in the design, so decided to go with a primitive pink for the border.
This one had no saying, but I like the friends saying, so added that on, along with some inspirational words.
I realize, I should border them first, then decide on the saying and change the size and layout, to fit in the frame better.
I antiqued this piece to grunge it up a bit.

Gorgeous!! My question is how do you 'grunge them up? Do you spray them with tea? Or is there a special solution?

Very nice!

Love your lil painted stitches quilts, they are adorable Debbie. I have the same question as Paulette. Do you soak your quilts in a tea bath or do you spray them with tea and wait? I would love to know your process, coming from a pro that is. :^)
