Friday Finishes!

This has been a rainy week so it was a good week to work on some new projects. The first one is a free design by Cheryl Seslar. I have had the pattern for years, so not sure where I got the free one.

I wanted to have fun with this one so I used more color. I will make it into a mini quilt and it will go into my gift box.

The second piece I made is from another design I found on the internet. I am not sure who the designer is and the site is in another language, so I hope it was free. I just loved this one, love the saying and the cute angel, just brings a smile to my face and hopefully the person who I decide to give it to. The photos are not the best, so hopefully I can get some nicer ones when I finish them.

I added a few fun touches on this one, the hair is done with a chain stitch and the stars are an addition. I also used batting on this one, that way I get more depth in the piece, the raggedy ann is done just on the cloth and a looser weave, I think I prefer the muslin for stitchery.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend. We have rain on and off so hopefully we will get some breaks and out for a few walks.

I like that you used the wool for the red hearts with the angel.

Ann is cute but I love the Angel. Lovely stitching Debbie.

I always love your pieces but the angel one is my favorite as the saying comes from my favorite movie.
it is dreary and again today I need to see more sun.

You do some of the nicest stitchery and I like that you have a gift box with items available at a moments notice.

Like Cathy, I love the saying in the angel piece. It's from "A Wonderful Life" one of my all time favorite Christmas movie. Isn't Christmas without watching it.

Take care

They are both so cute but I love the last one. That's my favorite movie of all time

I do love that saying, too.
You get so much accomplished!!! I need to get busy. Between vending at the show, the day job and yard work, nothing creative has been done.
Happy Mother's Day.
Hugs :)
