Send the Finishing Fairy...QUICK!

A few months ago, I had a huge pile of finished cross-stitch that needed something done to it. Slowly, but surely I about worked through all of it!

The other day, I got to thinking about my pile of little finished cross-stitch. And knew I had to do something about it!

At one point I had picked out the backing fabric! That's a start, right?

But already there was this other growing pile of ones I hadn't even picked a fabric for yet!

All together now: "SENT THE FINISHING FAIRY!"

Have you seen that commercial where the man is in bed waiting for the Good Credit Fairy and his wife finally helps him realize there isn't one!

I figured the Finishing Fairy wouldn't ever come, and thankfully DH is out of town today and tomorrow. SO... I skipped the gym, skipped the grocery store, and put on my Tutu! That is what Fairy's wear, right?

So far, I have three itty-bitty little Valentine pillows put together. Four medium size pillows and two flat folds! These were my very first flat folds, and the medium size pillows were made differently than I usually make them!

They are all stuffed, (Luke said it looked gross!) just need to close them up and add some trim or beads or something, we'll see!

I did clean the bathrooms today! All 2 1/2 of them, thank you very much!!

Finishing is half the battle with some projects. What fabric to match up with the piece. Although it seems very time consuming, once you get the ball rolling it flies by and you sit back at the end of the day and think to yourself, "That was easy, why did I wait so long?" Have fun and don't forget to post the finales.
Be always in stitches

Wow! You have been busy stitching. I did check my magic wand to see if I could help you out, but found out that it was low on mojo magic juice...I have faith that you will be able to finish and I look forward to photos :)
Take care,

Just take it one finish at a time and you'll be done before you know it. What a great treasure you have there!

Wow, that is some pile of finished treasures. You could always contact Vonna and see if she offers a big discount for bulk stitching LOL.
I'm sorry, I'm laughing again.
Glad to hear you at least cleaned the bathrooms!

So many pretty projects. One at a time, and they will all be finished soon.
