I got a few more emails recently from those of you who have finished some PSS designs.. thank you again for sharing them! It's always fun to see the color changes you make, or the different ways you finish them.
First, I've never seen a finishing technique quite like this one, and I think it's fabulous! These are from Marielle fom France...
This one is Hares' Halloween (available from your local needlework shop):
And this one is Hares' Haunting (available under the "freebie" link on the right-hand sidebar here on my blog, along with all of my other freebies):
Next is a sweet finish from someone whose email I've lost, so now I don't know who sent it to me! I am sincerely sorry, but I'd like to thank you for taking the time to show me your Hares' Haunting pillow! I love how it turned out:
Here is Cindy's completed Christmas Tea, stitched on Pearl Grey Belfast, with Belle Soie silk - very pretty linen choice, Cindy!
And lastly, I asked Katrina's permission to post this here, bc it's too beautiful not to share with you all. Katrina is the assistant to the VP of Programs for the Sampler Guild of the Rockies, and she came up with this project for the guild members for next year. She did a gorgeous job on it (as she does with everything, I might add), and I can't wait to see it in person when I attend their retreat next June!
This design is a variation of the "Trifle for a Friend" complimentary pattern (again, located under the "freebie" category in the sidebar to your right). The original was charted for a single color, but Katrina added a few different colors and the result is wonderful!
And take a look at what's inside the box...
(She stitched the scissors fob over-one!) Katrina, you've done an outstanding job, and I know the ladies in your guild must be very pleased with your dedication to finding the perfect year-long project. And I'm extremely flattered that you liked the pattern enough to work with it!
Thank you all so much for sharing your finishes with me.. it's always a huge pleasure, and a dream come true for me to know that there are stitchers out there who like my designs. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
