I feel so good that I can actually show you that I have not really been sitting on my fanny doing nothing. Of course, what I have to show you isn't any current stitching, but just current finishing. I spent most of today finishing my projects for MB (except for one which is in the restitch mode), and I thought I would finish off some other things while I was at it. This first picture is a group of Halloween/Fall ornaments that I "borrowed" the idea from Blue Ribbon Designs. I don't have many Fall ornaments yet, so when I saw this posted on her blog, I thought it would be a perfect filler. Actually, hers were much nicer because she used some really cool fabric with a named designer which I can't remember. But they were quick to cut out from some random Halloween fabric at Hancock's and backed with a plain black fabric.
I do, also have two pieces that I had stitched last year, I think when I was at MB, that I had never finished. So, while I had the sewing machine out, I thought I could get these done. I am pretty sure that I posted pictures of the stitched pieces last fall, but now they are finished finished. The first one is a Pine Mountain design that came in a pillow kit that I stitched for someone and gave it away. This is the chart made into an ornament backed by the material it is laying on.
Lastly, a old chart from San Man Originals that I made into a pillow. It did turn out bigger than I would have liked, but I guess it will be okay for this year. I know I will be bringing back two Fall pieces and two Halloween pieces from MB so that will help fill out my Fall decorations.
Besides these few finishes, I did make up one Halloween ornament, one Fall ornament, and two Christmas ornaments. So, I am feeling pretty good about having my stuff together for MB. That is really good, because my schedule is really full for the next three weeks.
I want to thank you all for visiting my blog, and for leaving comments, they really do make me so happy that I am a part of the world cross stitch community. It sure is a wonderful group to belong to. Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!!
