My Sunday Stitchy Update 02/10/19

Happy Sunday Everybody!

I hope everyone had a great and hopefully snow free week! Though I do hear that snow is in the forecast again but I guess it is winter.

So last week I started working on a Lizzie*Kate Snippet that was only supposed to take a couple of days. Well that plan didn't work out but it is finished now! Yay!!

First Stitch 02/02/19
Finished 02/06/19

So next comes the dreaded question... "what should I do with it now?" Well I thought maybe I should make it into a pillow ornament and hang it from my shelf of 'things' in my room. Hmmm...Good idea I tell myself!

Now the hunt is on! I need some fabric for the back. I was thinking something flowery but I don't have any in my stash. I am trying NOT to spend money on XS stuff this year (though I did buy an Etsy chart for $1.50, thanks Rachel!) So I decided to use some scrap aida I have. Then another thought pops in my head. Whenever someone read what I was stitching I would tell them 'and that's me!' so I decided to stitch that on some aida and use it for the back! 

I used the same border from the L*K design and looked through the letters to see what I could use. Most of them where there already; thank goodness, but I had to design a couple to fit in with the other lettering.

That brings me to the next step with this finish and a new SAL!

Rachel over at Ten Hour Stitcher has started a new SAL. It is called the Fully-Finished Gallery SAL. It is designed to encourage us to move things from our Finished Pile to our Fully Finished Pile. It will also be a place for us to display our finishes and drool over other people's finishes that have been completed during the last month. So I just HAD to finish this today so I could participate in the SAL!

And now presenting my fully finished

I would like to encourage you to check out the Fully-Finished Gallery SAL; even of you don't have one to share this month. I think there will be lots of gorgeous pieces for you to enjoy.

Sorry I didn't mean to talk so much! LOL 

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

Looks great! Congrats on the finished finish.

Faith, I truly love this stitch and how you finished the back. Cute, cute, cute !!! You did a wonderful job. You could never talk too what you have to say.

I will check out the SAL..sounds like fun. Boy do I ever have a lot of stitches that are finished yet. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

A wonderful finish.

Mary said...

That was a wonderful idea and a super cute finish. Sometimes it is hard to find the right fabric for the back, and that was a great way to use up scrap xs fabric.

Rachel said...

Thank you for being encouraged to join in the SAL! The pillow is gorgeous and extra special because it's totally unique to you. Good things definitely do come to those who stitch - generally by email or through the letterbox - but let's not mention it's usually at the expense of our bank account balance! :)

Mary said...

Faith, Congrats on the super cute finish!! I love how you personalized the back!! great job!

Linda said...
