Stick a Pin In It - It's Done!

I have had a finish during my blogging hiatus - what I call a finish-finish.  I stitched this - Jenny Bean Pin Tuffet by Shakespeare's Peddler - some time ago. I don't think I ever showed it here on the blog.   I decided to send it off to Faye of Carolina Stitcher fame for finishing.    This was probably in April.

Faye is a wonderful stitcher and a beautiful finisher.  Not only was she an amazing communicator (that is always so nice), she delivered when she said she was going to (about 3 weeks) and her price was fair.  It's me who is lacking, I never let Faye know how happy I was!  I love it Faye!

Like I mentioned to Faye, sometimes you just need someone else to do it for you.  This was one of those times.  If you're ever in that frame of mind, I can highly recommend Faye.  When it comes back, just don't be so busy you let the box sit there for....ahem....way too long!

Now if I can just find that Blackbird Stocking that is tucked away someplace "safe"....!

Really, really great piece! I've heard nothing but good things about Faye's finishing. She's a real pro.

Its so beautiful - congrats to you both on the great work.

Beautiful! Sorry I am so late in responding. Don't know how I could have missed this post. It was so nice of you to mention Faye and her finishing of your stitching. That doesn't always happen. The pin cushion is a lovely family heirloom.

FlourishingPalms said...

It looks great, Jackie! And how nice to have a finish! Those are absolutely the best. We should all have a finisher at hand... or at least someone to encourage us to finish. It's difficult to feel motivated ALL the time, isn't it? Hope you're having a great summer.

Karoline said...

It's gorgeous, congratulations to you both

Angela P said...

Beautiful stitching and finishing. I stitched this one a few years ago and tried to do a pincushion but I didn't make mine puffy enough :) Seeing this makes me want to try again!

Kathy Ellen said...

How perfectly beautifully finished! You must be so thrilled with Faye's finishing of your wonderful piece.
Love it!

Blessings!
