Distracted, but one finish

Earlier this year, I was diagnosed with an inflamatory auto-immune illness. Since March I have been on steroids which have decreased pain and increased energy. At the same time I have gained quite a bit of weight and found that while energized, my focus isn't the best.

I made a bit of progress on a Notforgotten Farm project, but then quickly switched to:

Starting a Pineberry Lane project.

I did have one project that I stayed focused on and finished:

Stacy Nash's
Rose Garden Sewing Basket

I'm so thrilled with its finish!
I didn't switch much up on this one.
I only changed for a different Stacy horse that I preferred and added a single rose to the bottom.

I also had some sweet rosebud fabric that I aged and used for finishing.
I think that this was a vintage fabric that I found along the way
and I aged it with walnut crystals for those that have asked.

A sweet complement to the stitching.

It really is a tiny little treasure.
Here's hoping I can focus on finishing something else...

Tomorrow I will pick a randow winner for the little giveaway.
There is still a few hours to enter here.

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.
~Psalm 121:7-8

Blessings, Patti

Your pieces are beautiful, finished or not! Did you tea dye your flower backing fabric?

I didn't realize how small this project was. Perfectly finished and a great fabric choice. Steroids are a blessing but the side effects - not!

Beautiful finish!

Do you remember the name of the fabric you put on Stacy's project? Or where you got it?
