Look What I Did!!

This is from one of the classes I took at the PAL's Stitch Retreat last weekend in Myrtle Beach. The stitching was really fun to do and I really enjoyed using the fibers the designer used. I'm waiting to hear back from the Mary of M--Designs to find out what the brand was....I forgot what she told us in class.


I'm really proud of myself for actually finishing this into the pouch, I didn't think I could pull it off. BTW, Focus on Finishing has some really good directions - but they were in French! The pictures helped me get the concept down. I will definately being doing more of these - they would make great gifts for someone who's a stitcher or someone who really appreciates what goes into stitching!

I completed this ornament when I was in Myrtle Beach too. It's the Eiffel Tower from the 2007 JCS Ornament issues. I plan to finish it as a pinkeep using the same blue for the backing as used in the words, with a black ribbon and most likely silver head pins.

Thanks for looking!

Welcome to the world of blogging! I just started in July, and I've found it helps motivate me to keep stitching.

Love the bourse you made, they really are easy but look so impressive. Focus on Finishing is a great site, I've used it for so many different things.

I was just introduced to Focus on Finishing by another blogger. I live close to Dani and she just helped me out with my first flatfold. Your pouch is just too cute!
