A few finishes to share with Dinky Dyes Silk and ThreadworX

These are my Valentine Stitching in February, I just did the finishing today. February was not the best month. My son and husband was sick with stomach virus. Then my son's coughing issue resurfaced after I thought the new medication is helping. He has a lot of "drainage" at night and it caused him to cough. He was doing better last November and December but now it seems it started all over again with this strange cold weather in Texas. Generally, the weather is pretty warm by now, but it is not. I don't mind the cold weather except my son gets sick during winter months. I don't like not having sleep at night.

The first 2 pieces are stitched with Dinky Dyes silk Cherry Ripe. The floss ring tag is stitched one over one. The biscornu turned out to be very pretty as well.

I picked this motif from the Ackworth Quaker booklet using ThreadworX Kaleb's Cherry Patch and finished it as a floss ring tag. I stitched it one over one. I just love the details of stitching one over one.
