Finishing Friday (with Stardust)

Today's Finishing Friday!  Enjoy Ada Hayden's finished pieces, from Christmas trees that are happy and a jolly round pumpkin standup to a darling purse.

Pocket Full of Stitches has photos of the 3-D design models from the dede Odgen trunk show they are hosting. There are houses, a chair and a bear, but the fishing frog is outstanding.

Nimble Needle has brought gorgeous pillows and charming little ornaments to the party.  By the way, I agree with her about Stardust.  It's a fabulous thread but comes in limited colors, sadly.

Stardust is from Brown Paper Packages, the geniuses behind Silk and Ivory, and Trio.  It's not mentioned on their website but I did find a list of the available colors.  Basically, the thread is Silk and Ivory with a metallic woven in.  It is gorgeous stuff.  The metallic colors vary according to the color of the base thread.  In other words, it isn't just a gold or silver.

The four original colors in Stardust are shown here.  LOVELY!
