I have a Finish!

Surprise!  I have another finish!   Before I get to that though, I wanted to give  a big SHOUT OUT to Katie for being such a faithful reader and encourager to me.  She has stuck with me thru my hiatus from blog land and always leaves me such nice comments.  Y'all should all click on her name above and go check out her blog.  Though I rarely comment on her blog, she is truly an inspiration to me! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU my stitchy friend. 

Now for my FFO!  A little late for momma's birthday, but I knew I wouldn't give it to her until Thanksgiving anyway.  First is a close up to show off the Cute buttons.  There's a bumble bee, a lady bug and a butterfly.  I did alter the chart a bit as I did not want the "welcome" portion b/c of where it would be hung.  There were three other buttons that I did not use b/c of this.  I still love how it turned out.

Here's the entire piece hanging in my home--HA!  I will say I was a bit disappointed in the Bellpull hanger as the ends of the dowel did not come off.  Therefore I had to sew the piece to the dowel.  For me that was difficult. I didn't get it exactly straight so my stitching looks a bit crooked at the bottom (ugh). 
  
 
I have a quick question before I go.  The last couple of times I've added my pics thru Photo bucket.  Today I added thru my computer.  Obviously they look better today.  Has anyone else had issues with Photo bucket?  If so, how did you resolve it?  Thank you in advance for your help!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm  off to complete my Christmas Ornament Swap items.  Hopefully there will be a post of those soon.  Until then, Happy Stitching everyone!

  1. Aw Thanks so much for the shout out. I love reading other blogs and your blog is on my list. When I see someone post something new I just feel like it's nice to comment. I know I appreciate comments so I figure other people will too.

    Wow I love your finish. The buttons are too cute! I love the bell pull hardware you used. Sorry it was a pain that's frustrating. But it still looks beautiful so don't worry.
