Sunday's Stitchy Update...

This week it seems as though I never had time to sit down and stitch...something else was getting in the way like life!

I did manage to get two pieces finished and ready for Jacob's birthday next week. 
I put a hanger on the dog ornament pillow
and I managed to get his penguin on a hanger too,
not how I originally envisioned it but...
it is finished and that is the important part!

Yesterday I started a new piece
My Big Toe's Normal Family

I painted the fabric myself with Tulip Spray Paint. This is my first attempt at something like this and I like the way it turned out.  Learned a couple of dos and don'ts along the way but I will definitely do this again!

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching,
see ya next week with another faithful update!

You're going to leave us hanging?? What are the do's and don'ts? lol

Your finishes are adorable. Who's the designer of the penguin?

They are so cute, I love the finishes.

I've used Tulip before, but only with t-shirts - was it difficult with the fabric?

Congratulations on your finishes Faith! The fabric you used for Normal Family looks beautiful with the floss you chose. Can't wait to see how you finish-finish it :)

Love the dog piece and I think your other piece looks just fine. I like what you did also with the Tulip Spray paint.

TFS.
