Gentle Friends, I went wandering back through my past posts a found that I had neglected to show you my finish "finish" of Cotton Bird - a kit from the Colonial Gathering Stitch Club. The original kit instructions had us making a flat hanging piece, and although cute, wasn't what I wanted to do - so I put on the thinking cap drew a little sketch, popped sketch and stitched piece into the mail to Faye - finisher extraordinaire.
After deciphering my scribblings she worked her magic and I got back a super piece.........
... the pouch is totally perfect and square, my picture makes it look a bit wonky
- and here's the back with the flap opened.....
... I couldn't be happier!! It is a super piece that is getting lots of use and looks great in my stitching basket!!! I do love that these little pieces are versatile and can be made into little treats other than what is called for!!! I love the fabric Faye chose, it fits so well with the little stitching.
I received the last kit a good while back but have yet to start stitching - it is "suggested" to be made into a candle mat........ but is that what I want it to be????
Still mulling that one over in the old noggin.
That's about it for today sports fans, have a super weekend!!
