Day Nine

Football season is back in full force. Can I get a woo-hoo?

This past weekend, I turned my attentions to "Home Sweet Home" by the Good Huswife (released during her brief comeback tour in 2009).
 

Today it looks like this:



When I see this kind of progress, I think this may be the most brilliant rotation every. Thanks, Molly!

I was already pretty excited by what I had to show you, when I got a package in the mail from our fine and friendly finisher, Faye. I have about 50 items that need finishing. Let's face it, I could wait the rest of my life for me to get to it. I decided to speed things along by giving Faye a few pieces to try. Two of them--angels both--I had just no idea how to finish. So I sent them with no direction and no expectations.

Here's what came in the mail.
Heart in Hand, Wool Whimsy Angelic
Love! Love! Love! If I had to pick a favorite it's the Heart in Hand angel with the lace. I would never in a million years finished it like this, but there you go. Sometimes you need to crawl out from the box! Each of the finishes has nice little touches. I think a lot of people on my Christmas list may be getting something I stitch but Faye finishes this year! Of course, I'd have to stitch a thing or two for that to work! If you were thinking about having Faye finish some items...trust...and send them to her! Tell her I sent you.

Wow! Faye is AMAZING! As I absolutely suck at finishing, I'll be giving Faye a try here real soon. I'm sure you are super pleased - both angels are awesome and unique.

Great progress on Home Sweet Home. And wonderful finishes by Faye.

Also, thanks for much for your help yesterday. Once I have a few more of those designs done, I'm going to give it a try.

Wow, those pieces are beautiful! I just say mention of Faye's skills on another blog, and now that you've given her your seal of approval, I'll have to send her something!
