Birthday Stitching

Here is a photo of the Tulip & Star Pinkeep I stitched for my dear friend Kim. I should have taken a better photo so you could see what a lovely job the finisher did. She used the most beautiful burgundy fabric for the outside.
Here are two biscornus I stitched last week. The one on the left was a birthday gift for my friend Barbara and I stitched the one on the right for myself. The pattern is the Debbie Drapper designs called, Love. It was a very quick stitch and I really love to put these little guys together! See, I can do the simpler things but it's the really detailed finishing I have trouble with. I gave my needlebook to the finisher on Wednesday. I don't know when she will have it ready for me, but I do know that it will look spectacular when it is done and the fact that I can just stitch like crazy now will be worth every penny when I get the bill. This Fall she is teaching classes for eight different finishes and I am really looking forward to that! I already know how to do a couple of the techniques but I think you can always learn something so I will most likely take all of the classes. Now I had better get back to stitching since I have three exchanges that need to go out fairly soon. Have a great day!

Great job Paula! BTW - I put your squares in the mail today. So I would guess that you would have them by the end of the week, I hope. Hope you like them!

Your Tulip and Star pinkeep is gorgeous. Who is the designer?

I stitched Debbie's 'Love' too but I finished it as a pinkeep - photo on my blog. I may have to stitch it again as a matching biscornu now that I've seen yours!
