Wow! What stunningly wonderful finishes you have. I have Libertyville all kitted and ready to go, but....
I certainly love yours! I love the BBD Easter Parade too, that one I do have finished and it is one of my favorite springtime pretties. The Lanarte...gorgeous!

Oh, I very like this tender, elegant embroideries!
It's very beautifully and interestingly!

Jannie said...

You do such beautiful, beautiful pieces. I'd love to do a needleroll that would look like yours. And the Nora Corbett. My friend does all her letters. They are beautiful. How you get the creases out of your pieces, I'll never know. Been checking for you to post. Missed seeing your stuff. Love your style!

Robin said...

Everyone is prettier than the one before. Awesome collection of finishes.

You've been majorly busy! All of your pieces are just gorgeous. :)

Veronica said...

Your needle certainly has been smoking and your finishes are all absolutely gorgeous!

Love the detail shot of B Pixie. I rarely get to see all those bling up close.

I've never seen that Lanarte design before. All those pastel colours. It sure is pretty.


Teresa S. said...

Congrats on all the wonderful finishes in your stitching! All are beautiful and your daughter is a lucky girl :)

What is the secret to the hemming of the needle rolls with the pulled threads? Is the fabric bought like that?

Tatkis said...

So many beautiful finishes!
Needlerolls are so sweet, and Nora Corbett fairy is adorable!


Kris said...

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for sharing these beautiful work. On the 40ct pieces, did you use 1 strand or 2 strands of floss, especially the DMC cotton ?

I am about to start a TG design on 40ct and would like to check with other stitchers who have stitched on 40ct.

Looking forward to hearing from you.


Michelle S. said...

I used 1 strand of DMC thread.

Thank you for your lovely comment,
