June’s Fully Finished Objects

At last! I have my Finishes ready to show you! I am linking up with Rachel of Ten Hour Stitcher whose SAL helps motivate us towards fully finished objects. You know I’ve been getting a lot of stitching in even though it’s summer break for the kids right now, but finishing is another matter since …

My FFOs So Far 2019-Random Thoughts Done!

Well, I am LATE with this posting but it’s a good long one! Rachel at Ten Hour Stitcher has created a wonderful new SAL to encourage FFOs this year! Posts are supposed to be up by the 10th of the month, but I needed a little extra time for various reasons! Nonetheless, this is an …

New Things, Finished Things

I just couldn’t help myself. I had to start a few more projects! They all came out of my “do in 2018” pile and I figured if I don’t go ahead and get them started in 2018, they don’t even have any hope of being done in 2018! I’ve also been working on more finishing …

Friday Finishing (My June Small)

I’ve developed a bad habit of not finishing my works. I know I’m not the only one with this problem but for me it’s starting to seem unjust to all the time I’ve spent stitching! And I had an impetus this month-I finished stitching Lounging Hare from the class I took with Sherri Jones in …

Here it is! I found a …

When all else fails…

Follow the directions! I wasted a huge amount of time yesterday trying to improve a process that would have worked great if I had just trusted it a bit more from the beginning. I prefer to sew things up with the machine because I feel like it is so much neater and more secure. But …

More Small(s) Triumphs!

I finished my June Smalls SAL: isn’t she a sweetie? I love it so much I bought the companion pieces which are a Santa and a bell. I FFO’d my June Noel ornament for the ornies blog: This is such a versatile design I will definitely make it again. So next time hopefully the finishing …

Done, done, done,and…done

It’s a week later than I wanted but you know how these things go. And it’s not like I’ve been sitting on my hands! Far from it! But I finally have my 3, no 4 ornaments finished off! First off, the Mill Hill Christmas Letter. I like this. It is one I plan to make …

Coming Right Along

I got a lot done this weekend! All week I have been fussing with this Sweetheart Tree ornament which I started in 2012, finished in 2015, and which has sat around “unfinished” for the last year. I was emboldened to try the same technique as the friendship A frame, but with a heart shape. It …
