More Finishing

Here are the two finished pieces I couldn't show you last week . . . they have arrived at their destination . . . better late than never!  I'm embarrassed to say that these birthday gifts for my BFF stitchin' buddy are for last year as well as this year . . . her birthday is in May.  The one on the left was mostly finished when we moved a year ago April . . . I just couldn't find it after we unpacked.  It was in with my finished pieces that needed final finishing (but it wasn't finished!?!) and it took nearly a year to find . . . that's how often I finish things . . . lol . . . oh, that ADD just gets in the way!!!  That's my story and I'm sticken to it!
The one on the left is an adaptation of Homespun Elegance's Virtue Samplers (Jen's a very virtuous friend!).  This is what the original pattern looks like:

The one on the right is a borrowed idea from Pineberry Lane.  I don't know if her "mother" pattern was a pattern for sale or if it was a freebie but, I took the idea and charted up "friend" in a similar style.  Here's what the "mother" one looks like (I love the different letter styles and the color combination!):

I really need to give up the gardening for awhile and get another pattern out there.  The response through Hoffman Distributing has been very exciting and motivating!

We have a momma deer and her two babies that frequent the yard . . . must be all that clover in the grass!  They are so cute!
I think they need to be featured in an upcoming sampler don't you?

Happy stitchin' . . . get something finished today!                 ~*


  1. Those deer are adorable, & yes ... they need to be featured in a sampler : ) Great re-vamps of the PE & HE designs! You are very creative!

  2. Nice finishes.
    The deer are sooooooooooooo cute!

  3. Aren't they precious! I look forward to seeing them almost daily . . . almost feel like they're my pets. ~*
