Goodbye final pear!

Hi everyone.  After having to enter all the names THREE times into Random's list randomizer, they finally were scrambled, and the number that was generated belonged to C.M. Designs.  I have your email and will contact you this evening for your address.  And so ends the pears, with the final one leaving home.  I guess I'll have to stitch it again if I want the complete set.  Or maybe give the rest away?  I'll have empty bowl syndrome!  But I'll get over it.  Stay tuned!
Karen of Karen's Handiwork has stitched my pears and I showed them before. Since then she has added a few more. Check out the bushel of pears post to see her fabulous finishing.
I was busy with needle today but it was beans that I was sewing.  I'm attempting a string bean garland or leather britches as they are sometimes called.  I don't know why.  I'll show you how I did it and I'll post the drying process if any of you are interested in making one.
Again, thank you so much for participating.
Have a great weekend and stay safe!!

As I opened your blog, I thought "uh-oh, did she take a picture for her mantle??' I have seen Karen's pears, and they ARE wonderful! It ALL inspires me, tho I am woefully behind in reading blog posts! I have over 100! And I have company this weekend, so it will probably be closer to 200 when I get around to them! Can't wait to see the string bean project... Hugs!

Good morning Marley, I see that I've won your absolutely gorgeous, final pear.. I couldn't be happier and feel blessed to have won it.
I have really enjoyed stitching almost all of your previous gifting of pear charts. You can be sure I will stitch all of them.
I enjoy your blog so much and have learned a great deal about many things connected with cross stitch and finishing projects..
Thank you ever so much. I will cherish your work and thoughtfulness.
Many blessings,
Charlotte in Va.

Congrats to Charlotte. I've heard of leather britches, but never had any. Are you doing them just for decor?

Congrats to the lucky winner! Your pears are the greatest! Green beans, huh? Not sure I'd make one, but I am very interested to at least see the finished item!

CONGRATULATIONS to the very lucky winner. Bean stringing has my inquisitive mind buzzing. Yes I'd like to see this.
For sure, Karen's display of your 'Pear' designs is an inspiration.

Peace to all,

Karen said...

Marly I have truly loved your pears! I can't wait to get started on this one too.

Interesting that mention "leather britches". My hubby just harvested the last of his beans this season and we talked about leather britches and drying some. I will have to share pics of yours with him.
