Finishing Work

I tend to be one of those people who loves to embroider, cross stitch, and piece quilts and then they sit and wait for a day when I can finish more than one thing.  Today was that day...


Pillows, ornaments, and wall hangings were on the agenda.  The weather has been off today, and I had to take what I could get for photos in between rain showers.


This Christmas Wishes to All pillow was made using a free embroidery pattern from Anni Downs and the pillow pattern is by Gail Pan.


This ornament is from a Little House Needleworks pattern (do you see a theme here with these projects?)

 
My Kathy Schmitz snowman is finally complete and ready to hang.  There are 12 monthly kits, and I can't wait to finish one for this summer.  I'm thinking I had better start June now so I can hopefully hang it in July.

My sewing room is looking a little bit better now, and hopefully there will continue to be more action in there in the coming weeks.  I'm feeling better about my Christmas decorating today after finishing these projects, after all Christmas is only seven months from today.  (I can hear the groans, but instead of saying I'm behind, it sounds better to say I'm ahead of the game).  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

Great finishes! Glad you are ahead of the game. If it weren't for my daughter birthday shopping for her sons for me, the older one still wouldn't have anything from me for his April birthday. I made a drawstring bag for his younger brother's birthday and even mailed it and it got there on the actual day. Now I'm a month behind in getting his baseball fabric drawstring bag made. I have felt rather puny but 9 year olds don't understand that. He does know what gifts were from me though. I adore your inspiration for the holidays. I have been crocheting on a chemo hat, though.

These are awesome! I just bought everything I need to attempt my first hand embroidery project but I haven't started yet. Your work is so inspiring. I would love for you to link up to the Stitch It, Blog It, Share It Link Party going on now at BehindtheSeamsSewing.com.
