Final posting of 2006

Well this year is almost at an end and a new one about to start, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone who stops by,

I've been terribly lazy this past week or so and have hardly turned the computer on, never mind blogged, but I have enjoyed the rest and have accomplished a few finishes and finishing, here is one I stitched quite a long time ago, this is what I strted with for the finishing - Can you guess what its going to be??



The design is called French Heart and its by Shepherds Bush it came as a kit and included the silk thread and the fabric (32ct) and included a wonderful little shoe.



I actually completed this design about 3 or 4 years ago, but could never decide whether I wanted to frame it or finish it as something, I didn't really want to make a cushion of it. So I looked in my finishing box of beads etc and found some heavy lace that I had and some beads and ribbon



and I finally came up with the idea of making it into a bag, which is now hanging from my mirror, I was quite pleased with how it has turned out.

Waow !! Sue ! what an incredible idea ! I stitched mine one year ago and I can't find any suitable frame ! I even thought of ordering the Jill Rensell's one ! But your idea of turning it into a bag is to be studied thoroughly ;-))))

So pretty and what a clever way to finish your piece.
I finished an ornament that was 30 yrs old-do I get a golden star? I can't believe I waited so long to add a few finishing touches to it.
Have a great new year!!

Happy New Year to you Su!! I just love your French Heart! It is a tempting pattern for me to get after seeing yours. It doesn't look nearly as nice in the store display on a web site as yours does!! It is just really beautiful!! Debby
