I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

Three More Finishes

Hey Blog Buddies,

I haven't been stitching as madly as my last two posts would suggest.  I do have three more finishes to show you, but one was started over a year ago, another has been finished for a while, and the third?  Well, OK, I did whip that up in the last couple of weeks.  But needlepoint seems to go much quicker than cross stitch for some reason.

Here are the photos:

Long-time readers of this blog may remember this one.
I stitched it up for others in the past,
and thought I'd stitch one for myself.
This is just one of several cute little
hardanger designs from the Christmas 1991 issue of
Cross Stitch Sampler.
I started this piece around this time last year.
When it wasn't finished in time for Christmas 2014,
back into the bag it went until
just a few days ago.
And now it's hanging on my tree.

The next piece was finished about a month ago,
but I haven't shown it here because it was a gift.

This is Jeannette Douglas Designs' Pumpkin Pin Cushion.

The recipient was quite pleased with this.

This is another fabulous finish-finish from my friend Averyclaire.

The last one is Deb Bee's Designs' Ho Ho Ho.
This was a quick and fun stitch.
I will admit to switching out the DMC floss
for DMC No. 5 pearl cotton.
I had it in my stash, so why not?!
Laying 3 to 4 threads is just not my idea of

And here it is, all finished.
Not sure if this will turn into a picture,
box top insert or what.  Stay tuned.

Alrighty then.
That's it from here.
Hope everyone has a happy holiday.
I'll be back before the end of the year
with a Rotation Recap.

Thanks so much for visiting!

LOVE that hardanger ornament you made. I believe I have one similar to that made by you! And that pumpkin pincushion is beautiful! I love the stitching. It would also make a lovely biscournu...just in case you decide to stitch it again! And I envy your talent at needlepoint and you do it so quickly! Have a bless Christmas!

Love them all, Pat! The little pumpkin drum finish is darling--I can see why the recipient was so pleased...
