A Few Fun Finishes

"Spell of the Moon"
design by Blackbird Designs
(Man in the Moon carved by Anthony Costanza)
After seeing my friend, Susan's completed stitching on this design and after watching the beautiful lunar eclipse last month, I had to pull this out of my stash and stitch it right away!

It is such a sweet design and a fairly quick stitch.
I added a little ticking tag on the back to bring back memories when I look at this...
watching the eclipse in the backyard with our family and pups.
Enjoying our evening dessert while enjoying nature at its best...
"A Merry Christmas"
design by Maggie Bonanomi
class project for Boxwood & Berries 2015
I finished the applique on this while in Iowa with the Bittersweet Stitching Sisters.

But I couldn't consider it finished until it was backed and labeled.

I love the colors and organic vines.

But then again , I love all that Maggie designs :)
Another tag to remind me that I started and finished it in different cities and states with the Bittersweet Stitching Sisters :)
"Peacock in the Pumpkin Patch Pinkeep"
design by Stacy Nash
I finished this one up this weekend.
The backing fabric is so sweet and reminded me of peacock tails, so... 

I had to add a strip on the front. :)
I also had to add my standard two dachshunds lol.
There are still a few days left to join in my giveaway...

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
~Psalm 27:4
Blessings, Patti

Sometimes Maggie's projects are too primitive for my taste, but this one is just beautiful. And the finishing on your projects is always darling. I'm thinking I have some ticking in my stash to use as tags; thanks for the tip.
