I finally finished stitching my Finished Piece exchange piece. I did decide how I was going to finish it, and picked out the materials I would need, but I did not have time to do the actual finishing. I will do that next weekend. I had better, since I only have two weekends left before I go! I will take a picture of it and post the picture after I get back along with the other exchange pieces I have done.
One of the reasons why I did not have time to do the finishing work was because Lisa and Lily and I spent some of Saturday at the St James Art Fair in downtown Louisville. It is one of the largest art shows in the region, and is located on a court surrounded by huge old Victorian homes. The centerpiece of the court is a huge fountain. Here is a picture of Lisa and Lily in front of the fountain. It was a beautiful day with alot to see and enjoy!
Another reason why I didn't get to the finishing work was because Friday after I finished stitching the exchange piece I decided to stitch a fun pumpkin piece that I could use for Beckysc's Great Pumpkin Challenge. It was a quick stitch, at least for me. I haven't decided whether to finish it as a pillow ornament, or a no sew cube. I will try to finish it next weekend as well. Sorry, this picture seems to be pretty dark - dunno why.
I have a couple more little pumpkin pieces kitted up as well as another Christmas ornament to stitch on this week while in Louisville. Not sure which one will strike my fancy, so I will take them all with me.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and for taking time to comment. Hope everyone has a happy and healthy week and gets lots of stitching done!
