Show and Tell

Here are some recent finishes for show and tell!  Above is my dear little piece by Little House Needleworks.  This was a kit but I just stitched this one part of it and had it finished as a little pin cushion.  I love it!


 Here are some finishes from Karin.  She found this fabulous patriotic bowl at  a store called Ross and it was only 4 dollars!!!  Perfect for holding patriotic smalls.  I really want to jump on this bandwagon. 


 Here are some close-ups of the fabulous pieces Karin has stitched!!!
 The Let Us Be Truly Thankful piece is stitched on fabric that is named "Heroic!" 

Here is Karin's finish of Bloom.  This design was in a magazine.

 Karin finished Roses in July on 40 count and had it framed in this sweet little frame.
Lastly we have Easter Parade by BBD.  This was purchased by Pat on Ebay.  She found someone who stitched it on 40 count and since she probably was never going to do it on 40 count.....well, you know how that goes.  The cool thing is that the stitcher who made it is from Hungary!!!

Thanks for sharing, Laura! That "Truly Thankful" piece seems familiar to me. Do you know the designer? I'm thinking it's in the stash heap somewhere. LOL!

Lovely show and tell. The patriotic bowl was a great find, and a nice way to display the smalls.

Lovely stitching by all!

Fantastic pieces! Thanks for sharing the pictures! I love the patriotic pieces--I have these grand intentions of having a bunch of patriotic pieces and then never get them stitched.

I reall ylike the way you finished your "Needle and Thread" piece and the lace is so pretty.
I am also totally in love with Karen's patriotic smalls collection. The "2011" small is simply adorable.
All the other finished are super-sweet too - love the BBD pictures!
