Hummingbirds Finished!!

Sorry I have been away for awhile. I was not feeling great at the beginning of the week and it just threw everything off. I think I have things back under control for now. Here's hoping it stays that way for a bit.

I do have an exciting finish to share with everyone. I got the Hummingbirds for my Grandma complete. Here they are:

And here is a perspective shot:


I am going to make this into a bell pull. So I did the first coat of paint on the bars last night. It will still need a second one. And then I have to back it and sew it on. Hopefully it turns out good. (I would love to have this complete by Sunday so I can show my Mom when I see her)
Here are the bars:


Thanks so much for continuing to visit me. I know I'm not quite as active as I once was. I am still hopeful that I will get there again.

Next week the BF and I are on holidays. We are going away for four days to a condo in the mountains. So I will be offline for sure most of next week. However we'll be sure to take lots of pictures and share them with all of you. And I am hopeful that I can get some good stitching time in!  (If the bell pull gets done or I have anymore exciting updates before Monday I will post here, otherwise I will be back at the end of next week)

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

PS... when I get to 175 followers there will be another giveaway. this time it just might be some Just Nan items...

The hummingbirds are so pretty! And that blue is such a lovely colour for the bellpull.
Where do you get the hardware? I've got a couple of things I want to finish as bellpulls but can't figure out what to use for the actual hardware.
Have fun in the mountains!
