My first ever lined and cuffed stocking finish!  What was supposed to be a quick break for my eyes from the computer screen turned into a rather lengthy project.  This was stitched about 4 years ago, and has had fabric picked out for it for almost 2 years.

Stitched on 36 count fabric with assorted silks.

Pink overload

I swear I'm not a pink person, but you wouldn't know it from the finishing I've done recently.  The 2 Valentine ornaments I stitched last year, and the other small pillow is a Blackbird Designs piece I stitched as a Mother's Day present a few years ago.  Yep, mom is quite used to getting stitched but not finished gifts *blushes*.  Just one of many reasons I'm happy Charlene started this blog.

Ric-rac from Victorian Motto and large cream beads, with a scrap of cream lace across the back.  Baby ric-rac with small seed beads.  No embellishments, letting the small beads attached to the front be the focus of attention.

Plenty of unfinished items still in the pile.  I'm embarrassed to say I have so many unfinished items laying around I've actually lost something.  I can't find my January CCN cottage I stitched last year.

February is Here

Hey, Friends!

Since February is here, it’s time to do some heart Valentine finishing; right?  

When I got up this morning, I decided to go ahead and finish Endless Hearts that has been stitched since February 2012!  I was thinking of adding some buttons, but came across this rusted heart.  Think it looks sweet; right?

Hi there from Australia’s Capital, Canberra. I found your SNTF link on Siobhan’s blog and recognize a couple of other names now I am here. It seems like quite a few of us have had the same thought this year after a couple of years of reckless ‘Crazies’ and the like.

I have no blog, but thanks so much Charlene for inviting me join with you guys to finally finish some of my finishes J

I love the Inspiration and Technique page – my ‘hope’ is to try a few different styles of finishes as I go.
