Just a few finishes to share

I need to get better at my blogging here. This going a month between posts is ridiculous. LOL First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. It was quite a nice day here, 82 and breezy.

I have been stitching but a couple I can't share as they were models and for the JCS ornie issues, so you will just have to wait to see those. :0) They are cute!

I have had a few finishes for others with Finely Finished. First there is this very cute LK design that Bette stitched up for an exchange and I finished it into a flatfold for her. Just love the colors on this one.

Next up is another finish for Michelle (no blog) for an exchange, yet another LK design that turned out really cute and now on my must stitch list. Thanks Michelle! ;) Michelle also asked me to make a little pincushion with the backing fabric she sent for her partner and the pins I also made. THere was just enough fabric on the piece i cut to make a little scissor fob pincushion for her.

Carolyn (no blog)had finished stitching up Peep by, you guessed it LK. LOL I made this one into a triangle box for her and love how it turned out. And also an ornament by LHN.

Last summer Michele, Chris and I went to the Silver Needle to take a class with Barb & Alma of Blackbird Designs. Well, i finally finished up my needleroll into an actual needleroll. I don't know what took me so long, this was very simple to sew. I can see making more of these in the future. Here is a picture of all the pieces that i finished up from our class, complete! I guess i now "pass" the class. LOL

Recently i stitched up Happy Bunny Bunny Day by Trilogy for myself on a misc piece of lakeside linens (a greeny color and very pretty in person). the picture doesn't do the fabric justice. I made it into an Easel just in time for Easter. LOL Diane rec'd the little pincushion pillow i made for her along with some other goodies. This was a freebie but not sure where i got it, it has been printed off for awhile. but i stitched it over 1 on a misc piece of light blue fabric. The rick rack is from Victorian Motto, very soft and pretty.

Brianna and Shane came over the other day to hang out and get the dogs use to having the baby around. I took a couple pictures, well alot, but will just share a couple. LOL He is 3 1/2 weeks old now and just growing. Bri goes back to work around May 10th or so and then Shane will be coming here 4 days a week while they work. Lots of spoiling going on. LOL
