I just love the way you finshed the Alphabet Sampler. The tassels are just too cute. Of course all your projects turn out just beautiful. I love your blog. It is an inspiration!

Crazee4books said...

Hi Staci,

Oh boy!! Finishes!!

Looks like you were able to get
those tassels attached with no
trouble at all. Alphabet Sampler
looks wonderful, and that fabric
used for the backing matches the
thread colours beautifully.

And Mama Bird is so sweet. The
blues used to stitch the
lettering are so pretty. And
the little metal tag is a nice
touch.

Cheers!!

Joei said...

Wow, lovely stitching and finishing. Everything is perfect! Congrats!

DebW said...

Your work is beautiful!! About the apple pie, come on over! Do you drink coffee? I can make us a fresh pot and I have ice cream to go with it, too. Be hurry before we eat it all, lol!

Carolyn said...

Ohhh I love your Alphabet Sampler the very best, but of course everything is wonderful, as usual. Your blog is one of my all time favorites! You do great work, Miss Staci!

Hugs,
Carolyn :)

Lillie said...

Wow! everything so lovely and beautifully finished.

Julianne said...

Great finishes. Your pillow is stuffed so perfectly!

Kathryn said...

Those are lovely finishes.

Yes, we very much enjoyed our drive to Colorado. It's a gorgeous state, but most of it is much, much too high for me. I do suffer when the altitude is over 3500', even in Denver. I was worried about moving to Las Vegas, but our house is at 2650'. Still, I notice a difference when traveling from Maui to here. I do like sea level best.

Rima said...

So nice! As always...

I like that touch "nurture".

Michele B. said...

Hi Staci!

Greetings from Cape Cod, where I am not getting a lot of stitching done but the beach makes up for it (almost). I just adore your Mama Bird, and the Nurture tag is so perfect. You really are an artist. I just bought the JCS issue on eBay - you have inspired me.

TTYS,
Michele

Kathy A. said...

Oh your finishes are just soo lovely.

Teri said...

The Alphabet Sampler finish is lovely. Nice job! Of course, all your finishes are lovely!

Annemarie said...

Okay. That is one gorgeous pincushion. And the pinkeep, too. I'm SO jealous of your talents, I'm not even going to hide it from the world ;o) Well done, girl!

Sandra said...

Your alphabet sampler looks amazing and I couldn't help but check to see if I have the chart, which I'm pleased to say I do. You mentioned that there is a companion piece, please could you tell me the name of that?

Nicola said...

Great finishes Staci!

Paisley said...

Both finishes are gorgeous! I love your backing fabrics, too!

Lelia said...

Fantastic finishes!!! WOW

Milly~ said...

Wow there are all great but I love the CHS piece. Stop by my blog and see my note to you. : )

Stitchingranny said...

Both lovely pieces - Mamma bird and babies is so cute.

Kathy said...

You do an awesome job of finishing. Do you hire out to do finishing for others?

Yasmin said...

Hi Staci,
I found your blog through The World Largest collection of Smalls Too. Love your Alphabet Sampler to bits! Would love to stitch this but wonder if I can get hold of old copy;))
