Two Finishes!

Yippee! Finally got the birds and the needlecase finished.=) The stitching show motivated me to get on with my WIPs (and at least one of the 2 chums I went with to get on with hers too....), and here are the results.

Here are the birdies: It's not at all a good photo as you can't really see the beading in the flowers at all. There are actually beads and long-stitches in there, which look fab in real life, but don't show well on here.=(

And here are the front and the back of the completed needlecase. I'm quite proud of it as the sewing is quite neat for a change and I managed to get the stitches that hold the 'leaf' in to be virtually invisible along the outer edge.=)

Stitched in 'Cotton Candy' Caron Watercolors and Wildflowers threads on pink Oslo fabric.

Wow, Elisabeth, these are two stunning finishes. I'd love to see the birds IRL to see those long stitches and beads and other details, but they look incredible in the picture!

Isabelle said...

WOW! Those are great finishes, Elisabeth. I especially like the needlecase and really want to start one for myself but i have a lot of exchanges going on at the moment, so no time for what i like.
Have a nice weekend.
