More finishes

Wahoooo!! I finally finished 'Happy Hearts' by Birds of a Feather, stitched on 36 ct. meadowlark linen with weeks dye works. This took me just a little over 5 years to complete. I finally finished it this last spring, taking advantage of soccer practice to put in lots of that solid stitching along the bottom.

Here's 'Coffee House' by Little House Needleworks. I had this chart in an old issue of Just Cross Stitch, but I know this one can be bought individually now too. I loved the colors on this one, so rich!

Here is a Scarecrow designed by 4 My Boys, from the chart titled 'If I Only Had a Brain'. Those exact words are charted under the scarecrow on the chart, but I left them off. It's stitched with WDW, Crescent Colours, & DMC on 18 count natural light linen.

I know my pictures are not the greatest, and they sure do seem to make the linen look way more wrinkled than they do in real life!

In the stitching basket this weekend is my Blackbird Designs 'Live Each Season' and a Lizzie Kate ornament . Fingers crossed for a finish! Oh wait, it isn't the weekend yet! It's just the start of fall break for the school kids, so it feels like the weekend!
I am off to have a cuppa snickerdoodle (I love that name!) coffee now. Happy Stitching~

Everything is gorgeous! I especially love the BOAF piece, one of my favorite designers. It's such a shame they are no long designing.

Your BOAF "Happy Hearts" looks great. That's one that calls out to me, and seeing yours makes me want to stitch it all the more. Good fabric choice!! I loved stitching BD "Live Each Season." Hope you enjoy it, too!!

Congrats on finishing the stitching for Happy Hearts. That seems to be the next BOAF on my list. Do you have any hints for me? It looks fantastic : )
