Almost finished!!

Seems like finishes around here take a few different steps! Unless I sent it to Faye! :)

I did my very first flatfolds the other day. They didn't turn out too badly! I still need to add the trim to both of them. Actually, I might only add trim to the snowman, I might leave the LHN as it is. What do you think?







I finished a few little pillows. I stitched these in time for Valentine's Day, but, well, you know! At least I'll have them for next year, right?



Then I had been seeing the pillows with matching fabric on the front, so thought I'd try a few of those. My favorite one is the turkey. Just happened to have the fabric, and it matched the dyed threads perfectly! I took these pictures before I stuffed them, just need to add some ribbons and buttons or something!

And remember I started this the other day? It will be finished in the shape of a heart, if I can figure out how to do it! LOL

And then I've been wanting to join in Sylvi's SAL. She releases one each month, and so far I'm three months behind. I'm hoping to get caught up and then just stitch each one as she releases them. We'll see! I'm going to stitch them all in one long line, stitched over one on 25 ct.

Course I always have Flower Power in the wings, and right now I need to finish up a pincushion for an exchange and stitch a quilt square.

Thanks for stopping by!

Someone's been busy!! Great job on the finishing. I have the heart finished too but am leary to try the heart shape finish. May have to wait to see how yours turns out!

Happy stitching....

They all look fantastic! Your last RR is in the mail (couldn't get to PO before today). And I have yours to stitch and then it's all done. Good feeling, isn't it?

Wonderful finishes! Good job on your first flat folds and I love the way that you varied the finishes of the pillows. It looks like you were really having fun!

Take care

Nice work on the finishes! I really need to get out my sewing machine and do some finishing of my own. Especially because I still have to finish something for an exchange!!! I just kitted Sylvia's SAL. I found a piece of Quaker cloth in my stash that is a bit on the small side but will be okay if I finish it as a wall hanging. At least yours is started =)
