April tomorrow, wow

I cannot believe that it is already April tomorrow. where has the time gone?? It is starting to heat up here in AZ, been in the 80's but going back down to the 60's for a few days. brrrr (just kidding)
Well, i have been a finishing fool lately. Chicks Rule has been a very popular design this year, that is for sure. I have finished 4 total so far, one is mine and 3are for other ladies.

this first one is Carolyn's

the back is the same for both Carolyn and Michelle's

Michelle's

Eileen's made into a no sew cube.

I also had a few other designs to finish that were Silver Needle's Secret Needle Night kits stitched by Kelly. These were fun to finish as well.

Let It All Hang Out

Love You

New Year


As for stitchy finishes of my own, i have recently finished up a WIP. Live Love Laugh by La D Da is finally finished and don't know what took me so long to finish it. LOL oh yeah, maybe its the other hundred WIP's i have always calling to me. LOL I stitched it on the recommended 35ct WDW Straw linen but I changed up the colors. I used CC wild berries, black coffee and weeping willow. I really like the color combination on this fabric. I just need to get a better picture of it, but you get the idea. :)

Today came a wonderful surprise in the mail from Lynda A. I am in a "pin pillow" exchange hosted by BeckySC. I rec'd this wonderful pillow from Lynda today and absolutely love it! Lynda did an awesome job on the stitching and the finishing it into the pillow (which is one of my new favorite finishes) and the fabric she used is perfect for it. Thank you sooo much Lynda! It is the March quaker by Workbasket.

Love your finishes, they are so cute. You pin pillow is so sweet, Lynda has finished it beautifully. Wish it was spring-like here, we are now cooling down to autumn, our daylight savings time changes back this weekend. Happy Easter, Nicky
