Finally Fully Finishing Fun for June

FFG SAL - 10th of each month
Hosted by Rachel the Ten Hour Stitcher

This SAL is designed to motivate us all to do something with that box of Finished pieces instead of just storing them under the bed.  We will all be linking up on Rachel's blog on or after the 10th of each month (10 Hour Stitcher - 10th of the month).


The first piece I fully finished was from 2018, one of my Just Nan Smalls.  Here's where you saw it last:

I knew I didn't have all the recommended charms so I used random ones from my stash:


There's a bee, butterflies, flowers and a little fairy at the very top:


The colours in this scrapbook page matched perfectly:


Then, when I was looking for something else, I found another piece from 2018:


I bought a black frame for this and painted the mount black to match.  Then I couldn't find where I had put the finish!  So I thought I'd better get this one done straight away before either element went missing again.


That's it for the FFO pieces this month but I did have a Flurry of Finishes as well.

First of all, I finished Just Nan's Garden Maze which has been my focus small from before Maynia:

I added one of the buttons I am going to use for Summer in the Square:


This will be scrapbooked for next month.

The next finish up was the second in the Scary Apothecary series from Hands On Design; Bitter Brew:

 I used the DMC conversion again, including a blended orange for the main cartouche:


The black is Weeks Dye Works Kohl:


And the metallics are DMC rather than the charted Kreinik:


The contents of the bottles are satin-stitched which makes them look a bit wonky!  Hopefully when I fully finish these they will straighten up a litte bit.

Finally, I finished the first shop in my CCN Main Street Spooky Conversion.  I'll save all the details for my Gifted Gorgeousness post on the 15th:
