Finishes, Finishes and more Finishes

I can not believe how much stuff I have stitched and finished.  I have been looking back in my book I record my stitching finishes in and at pictures on my camera and I am over whelmed with how much I have not posted.

I really have this blog to keep some kind of log of what I have done but it is only as good as the posts I do, which I am not good at keeping up on.

So with that being said I am going to try to get some finishes logged in.
Here we go.

Here is a picture of the finishes I did over the weekend.

This finish was not in the first pictures with all the rest.

I also stitched this piece called Mount Vernon. 
Stitched on 28 count white with DMC thread.
Started 6-20-2015 Finished 6-30-2015
 I stitched it for my friend Stacy.
I first met her in March and we met up again in June when I drove to Chesapeake, Virginia
with our daughter Chastity when she moved out there.   I went to Washington, DC to meet up with my hubby and  spend sometime with some of our children on a family vacation.  So while I was so close I hooked up with Stacy and we went to tour Mount Vernon. Stacy had a "Big" birthday this year I told her I would stitch a big project of her choice for her birthday and this was it.

Ok, I think that is it for right now.  I still have a couple of framed pieces to post hopefully in a few days.  I nay even unearth some other pieces I haven't posted yet.

Hope everyone is having a great week and staying cool.
Thanks for stopping by.

Wow, that's a good bunch of finishes.
You've been busy!
You've done a great job on all of them.
I think my favorite is the BB Button Box.
