Finishing Photos Finally

It’s been a while since I posted some finishing photos except for what was done for the Boutis Class.  So I am trying to catch up on showing some of the lovely things my clients have done!

Pat quickly finished this very pretty needleroll.  It came as a kit and I did the finishing for her.  What a lovely piece!



Nancy was very busy stitching up a couple of gifts for a good friend. I love the nautical theme.


I kept the nautical theme going with the “whale-like” stitching on the accent piece. Click on photo to zoom in a bit.


And I added some of that accent color to the back as well!


And here is Nancy’s second gift item…sailboats…made to match the first one!


For this one I added “wave-like” stitching on the accent piece and some accent color on the back as well.



Vivian requested a simple Christmas pillow with ten rusty bells.  I love the backing she chose to go with it.  Simple and elegant.



A new project roll is born with a hidden place to keep your thread and scissors, etc.




And a couple more project bags were finished with a French theme.  Eiffel Tower on one with an Eiffel Tower zipper pull and a Boutis needlework piece mounted in the center of the second one, which also has an Eiffel Tower zipper pull.





Thank you again to all my clients who keep my “in-box” full of beautifully stitched pieces.  More to come as soon as I have the photos ready and downloaded!

Amities, Averyclaire

    Hi Karen
    I am never tired to look at the beautiful pieces of art you so precisely ‘finish’. What a nice job you are achieving. And BTW as I can see you in the right column, you look really cute yourself.

    Your finishing is amazing! Like the prior commenter, I never tire of it either! Does the project roll have closed ends? How does that work? I’ve only seen them with yo-yos on the end. I love your finished ends.

    Really love seeing your finishes, Karen! Those speciality sttiches add such a nice touch to them, too. I need to teach myself some of those one of these days. I am always inspired when I “visit” you–thanks so much 🙂
