Finishing Frenzy Sunday

I needed to get some finishing done and finally found sometime to do that yesterday.
Here are the results:

Just Nan--Jolly Old Elf
I received this pattern, frame, fabric and fibers from my stitching buds Jackie and Lori
when I was living in Aberdeen. So I thought I needed to get it stitched and finished.
He turned out pretty cute, even though I am not much of a Just Nan girl. Jackie
LOVES these little Just Nan's!!

Next up are these LHN 2011 ornies. I have had most of them stitched up for a couple weeks at
least. Now I am all caught up with the stitching and finishing for the 2011 ornies. Just waiting to get the last two designs. It is always so nice when I can keep up with a series:)

When I received my latest BBD Loose Feathers--Autumn I had to stitch up this design. This is the Pumpkin Blossom sewing box. I stitched it on some of my own coffee dyed and baked 32 count linen and DMC threads. I am happy with how it turned out.

Here is the inside view. I also had to buy these Kelmscott Blackbird thread winders.

I stitched this BBD Loose Feathers #3--Evening Shades a couple of months ago. I just couldn't find a frame for it--as I like to find my frames at the local thrift shops, so I went to JoAnn's with
a 50% plus $20 off coupon and bought this frame. I think it is a great frame for this design.

So I am somewhat caught up for now. I do have a couple more ornies and a picture to frame. They may have to wait until next weekend.

Well I am off to lunch with my hubby and then to work for a 12 hour shift:(
Have a great week.

Quick post

I decided to try Daffycat's tea dying method. Here is how it turned out. I will have to say that I like it.

I think I will be doing some more tea dying:)

Hope everyone has had a great weekend.
