~ COUPLE ORNIE FINISHES ~

Dear Santa, I've been a very good girl, but did steal a few moments over the last couple days to work on some finishing.


For my niece Autumn (9) cause all little girls love horsies:)  Folky Horse on Fiddlers 18 ct., back finished with barn red wool, jute hanger.

For our home, French Noel on Fiddlers 18 ct., Floss is Waterlilies-color Umbria.

My first time finishing a back with 100% silk evenweave, wanted to see how it handled the rigors of hand finishing, very luxurious and sturdy, loved working with it.  This is drab green, but there were many other lovely colors I left at the shop.  Clearly I was NOT thinking straight, hmmm.........
 
Thanks for peeking, wishing you all a lovely and gentle day, and of course Sweet Stitchin:)

Tootles, Sue
