A few finishes...

"Auld Lang Syne"
freebie by Heartstring Samplery
(featuring the initals of my grandparents in memory of days gone by...)
It's been a busy time... Busy season at my full time job as an accountant with lots of extra hours. Busy with the February 1st update on TDIPT Mercantile. Busy with a few special orders.
But somehow I still have to fit in a few finishes to keep myself sane :)
"Mary's Pinkeep"
by Stacy Nash Primitives
a Country Sampler Girls Club Kit
I had a lot of fun with this piece. It was designed with the crowns and an initial under each crown representing a family member. I decided to make it a family tree - the parents above the crown and the child below - the crowns representing my husband, me and both of our sons. When it was just about complete, I realized I forgot a very important family member - our dear dog Orion... so at the last moment I added an "O" in the bottom right hand corner with a crown for him too!
"My Valentine"
Simple Goods Stitched by Jennifer
I am still planning a special giveaway this month. It's just been delayed a bit as I haven't created the item that I plan to giveaway yet... so please stay tuned.
“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike."
~Matthew 5:43-45
Blessings, Patti
