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

Two Winter Finishes

Here are two finishes that have made an appearance on this blog, but I thought I would show the finish-finishes.

This is  the SamSarah Winter Cardinal,
finished as a flat fold.  So cute!

And this is First Star, from the 2012
JCS Christmas Ornament issue.
The back is covered in a luxurious flannel
that feels like velvet.
I think it has a sophisticated look.

Both of these adorable finishes
were done by Averyclaire.
I was going to wait until I had my quilted
wall hanging finished and show them all together
(all I have left is to tack down the binding)
but that's going a lot slower than anticipated.
Besides, I kind of like the idea of
more frequent, shorter posts.

Hopefully, I'll be back before the end of the month
with another finish.
At the rate I'm going, it will be
Prairie Schooler's "G" and not the quilt.

That's it for now.
Thanks for visiting!

Both of your finished finishes are lovely. The redbird makes me smile. First Star is very elegant looking.
