Finishing Frenzy Weekend

Here is the collection of finishes I did over the weekend.
Some of the stitching was done back in 2002 and 2003.
I didn't know about this type of finishing and was always
pretty much framing most of my stitching.

These three pinkeeps were from the Fair and Square
exchange. Round # 7, Summer and Patriotic exchanges.
I really like the pieces and how they turned out finished.
I even did some ruching on the peacock pinkeep.

This little baby I have had stitched since 2003!!
I can't believe that. I was going to originally make
it into a box, but decided to make a scissor pocket
out of it because I have wanted to make one and
it will serve as my Monthly Finishing Challenge.
I paired my pocket up with my Bianca scissors.

I also got my Brides Tree Ornament SAL done.
These fish came from the Mary Garry Pattern

Then I had to stitch another floss tag. The elements
for this came from Joyful Summer by CCN.
I am quite happy with how it turned out.

Lastly I finished these three pinkeeps.
One of them was another 2003 project.
I really enjoy making smalls.

So another productive finishing weekend.
This week now I am going to try to just do
some stitching. I am almost done with
Joyful Summer and have started another
wedding sampler, which needs to be stitched and
finished by July 26th!!!

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
