Wow, i haven't posted in a month!

Well, i have been busy with stitching, finishing, etc. Doug has been out of town most of this past month between work and hunting. He was a successful hunter, he got his Elk, so another year of a freezer full of elk meat.
I also stitched and finished my ornament for Ruth for the HoHoHo Ornament Exchange we are in. I really like how this one turned out and will be stitching it for myself as well, hopefully soon. I was fortunate enough to be able to hand deliver it to Miss Ruthie when she was here in Tempe AZ for a convention. We had a nice dinner along with my daughter Caitie who is at ASU. It was really great to hang with Ruth, enjoy a really nice dinner out and stitching with her afterwards for awhile. Hugs Ruthie!

I have also finished and sent ahead of time (yeah, finally on time) my fair & square pieces for Jill. Jill is very quick and finished them into a floss tag the day after she rec'd them from me. You go girl! They turned out great in a floss tag!

On the finishing front, i have a few recent finishes to share. I have a couple pieces for Michele who brought them to me in April. LOL I finished the Flamingo she stitched as a hanging pinkeep and her fair & square pieces from Veronica as a pinkeep in shape of a heart.

I also just finished 3 pieces for Eileen. There is the Santa ornament, fall ornament (i believe this is a JBW design) and Smell My Feet into a no sew cube. Out of the 3 I am partial to the fall ornament and really wanted to keep it. LOL But i sent it off to Eileen. sigh...... I really hope Eileen likes them even better in person. The pics aren't the greatest, they are from my phone, as Doug also has the camera with him. GRRRR

I recently worked on Sharon's RR piece from The Society's RR that has stalled for quite a few months. I finally got her piece and stitched it up. Now to stitch on Shelleen's piece as well.

My last picture is of the 2nd ornament i finished for my LNS, The Attic. This is another of the ornaments for Sue's Legacy.

I also have another finish, Practice Sampler by Milady's Needle, but i obviously didn't take a pic yet (finished it a few weeks ago). I will take a pic tomorrow and post it. Hopefully i might have another small finish to go along with it. keeping fingers crossed. LOL

Wow Karen, lots of fantastic finishes! Congrats on the ones you made and the ones you received as well. Every year I tell myself I will contribute something to The Attic's ornament auction but each year I don't get it done. Bravo for you!

Brigitte said...

Wow, Karen, your finishes are really gorgeous.

Tammy said...

Oh WOW !!! Your finishes are awesome, and I'm in love with the flamingo--she's great!

Wonderful finishes! I really love your Christmas ornaments; you do such nice finishing.

Sharon said...

I think you've done an awesome job in the stitching and the finishing. Of course my favorite is my RR piece. :-)
