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

First Finish of the Year!

Greetings, Bloglanders!

I'm back already.  I'm going to try doing more frequent, shorter posts this year.  We'll see how this plan works out.

We had a peek at this one in my last post.
Winter Defined by Erica Michaels - I believe it's one of her newest designs.
I'm not thrilled with my attempt at cording,
but it is what it is.

I got my January design (from Hands On Designs)
pillowfied, too!
After this finish, I vowed that I wouldn't
work with mini-poms again anytime soon.

And for you Molly fans,
here she is snuggling under a knitted scarf
that I actually gave away as a gift.
This fell under the "20-second rule."
Hopefully, the recipient has given up
reading this blog.

So, my one-photo post
suddenly turned in a three-fer.
I'll have to work on that.

Hope your year has gotten off
to a great start.
Thanks for dropping by.

Congrats on the cute finish. I think your finishing looks awesome. Nothing wrong with it. Love the pic of Molly and the scarf is beautiful.

Sweet finishes!

I've been thinking about more frequent, shorter posts, too, Pat, but I keep procrastinating and end up with my normal overly long ones :)

Your two winter finishes are so cute. The cording looks great to me! Pompoms are another thing altogether. I have never used them on a pillow finish because I knew I would have trouble. But, yours looks very cute!

Looking forward to seeing your PS Alphabet masterpiece all finished up this year :)

Two super finishes, the cording looks lovely. Pom poms .... I used them once!

A project isn't fully finished if it doesn't contain natural pet fibers! I haven't used pompoms as a finishing on a pillow, only as a floof on a hat which isn't quite the same haha. Many posts seem to say they're trouble! But they do look so cute. Love the cording on Winter Defined.

I love seeing the pictures, three works.
