FLASHBACK Friday!!!!!!!!!

Wow, another Friday has rolled around. My how time flies when you are having fun stitching. Still cannot post any progress pictures. Still working most of the time on a design model for The Sunflower Seed. Also, did a little stitching on a couple of my many WIPs, but not enough to warrant an updated picture of them.

These finishes have been completed a couple of years. Both are used as store models at the LNS. Seems as this is a Hinzeit-themed Friday.

CANDY CANES
by Hinzeit
Not sure what fabric this is. It is some evenweave, not linen and the fiber is what the pattern called for. Frame is a double frame from East Side Moulding.

CANDY CORN
by Hinzeit
This design is stitched on 10-ct Black Tula with the fibers called for in the pattern. You would think that stitching on larger count fabric would make things easier. Actually, I think it is harder because you have to work so hard to make sure the many strands you use lay flat beside each other. It is easier to see on, but more difficult to make it lay down nice. Most of this was stitched on a bus trip to a Kansas State football game at Texas A & M. Below I have included a picture of the back of the pillow. I found this cool 'candy corn' long before I ever stitched the piece. I knew I would find a use for it.
Tomorrow I am taking care of the LNS, so the owner can spend the weekend with her kids from out of town. It is always dangerous when I work at the shop. I tend to find more things that I know I need for my stash. I will try to restrain myself. Currently, I have too many things in process and on my to do list.

Have a good weekend and spend all your spare time with needle in hand.

Hi Kathy...love your Flashack Friday post. Nice job on both designs. The Halloween pillow is GREAT (I am a big fan of Halloween designs!)and I love the candy corn fabric.
It must be so nice to spend the day in a LNS around ALL those patterns, fabrics, and fibers ~ Heaven!
