A Gift and Some Finishes

Recently I ordered some pin books from a very sweet lady in the UK. I was introduced to Angela through a mutual online friend. Angela had so many wonderful patterns to choose from that I couldn't make up my mind which ones I wanted. I left it up to her to select some for me. What a job she did. They are all beautiful. Angela made all four of them a gift to me. I don't want to give any of them away now. If you are ever in need of a beautiful little handmade pinbook please check out Angela's selection of pin books here. . Thank you so much Angela. I will treasure mine always.

Next I have a couple of small finishes to show . The first is a Homespun Elegance pattern Snippet's and Stitches I. I purchased this pattern last year. It came with a lovely piece of vintage lace. I put my lace in a very safe place so I wouldn't loose it. Well guess what? When the time came to sew in on I could not find it. So I used a piece of lace I had on hand. After I had it framed I found the lace. I put it in a small Ziploc bag and now it is among the missing again. Why didn't i just leave it with the pattern to begin with? Sometimes I do the most foolish things!! Anyway, I love the way it turned out. I love the little frame too. It's from Michael's.

Last but not least is a BBD pattern Woodland Berries. It is from their Loose Feathers Mystery Sampler Summer from last year.

Below is a close up of the frame.

It was a fun stitch. I love this frame too.

It is almost dinner time and tonight is Idol. What talent they have this year. So I am off so I will not miss a minute of tonight's show. Who are you voting for?

Hugs and Stitches,

Two very lovely finishes Pat. The frames you found are just perfect.
I'm the lucky recipient of several of Angela's pinbooks so I know first hand how lovely they are.
