Up date on blogging.....

As usual I am behind on my blogging. I wish I would just blog when I get a project done, but I seem to like to wait for whatever reason. I have been busy with some finishing this last weekend. Here are the results.

This is the Fair and Square I received from Faye. I finished into a tree ornament. It will be a lovely addition to my tree this year.
Here is the back of the ornament. Thanks again Faye.

These two finishes are for my daughter Melissa. She stitched them up and sent them to me to be finished.

This is my LHN ornament which I finished about two weeks ago. It is number 10 out of 12.

This is number 11 in the LHN ornaments which I just finished this weekend.

I have been very good in keeping up the the LHN monthly ornament stitching. So with that being said here are the 11 ornaments which are out. I am just waiting to get the last one. Then probably against my better judgment I will do the next set of monthly ornaments for next year.

My last finish this weekend was my Sampler Roundy by Shakespeare Peddler. I finished mine off with a round box I purchased at Michaels.

Here is a picture of the lid and the inside of the box. I really liked how it turned out. Just as I had in my mind.

This is a side view of the box. The rick rack I used was from an exchange I received sometime ago. It worked out just perfect.

My blogoversary is in 26 days and I will be having a giveaway so be sure to stop by and thanks for taking time to visit today.

Happy Stitching!!

Oh Joan, All of your finishes are just beautiful~~I LOVE the ornament you made out of what I had sent you in the F/Sq exchange...I hope to finish what you sent me off this coming week...

The round box you found at Micheals looks like it was the perfect fit...And the rick rack was spot on. I love this chart and hope to buy it someday. It is just different enough to really catch my eye...Good job!

Your finishing is really nice and I know your daughter will be most pleased....And, I love seeing you entire LHN 2010 ornament collection all laid!

Take good care and keep up the great work, Faye

All your finishes are gorgeous. Love the round box and the way you finished it and also love the Shakespeare's Peddler design on it. Where do you manage to get such fat rick-rack?

Lots of Love

I love the way you've used Roundy Sampler on a reound box. I may steal that finish if I ever stitch it.
