Finished

I've made some finishing progress! I can't believe that I stitched this two years ago, but never slapped on felt and cut it out. I was going to sew on a pin, but let's face it--it will get more use as an ornament.


Mill Hill Tipsy Tree Kit

Then I made some cording and finished this needlebook that I made at camp last year.


I sewed some things inside too.


I also started finishing the needlebook from camp two years ago. I just need to figure out what color the cording should be and make and attach that. Finally, I picked out fabric to finish five ornaments, but there are only so many hours in a day. And the dude kept wanting to do stuff, like go for a walk. Of course, he was on day 11 of vacation, and I had been to work on Monday. Oh, it's for sure, I need a new job. I'm thinking Stay at Home Wife. That works for me.

I took about a dozen stitches on Emerald Mermaid which is a SAL project for me and Michelle. And this morning I started the Monthly Mania series with February. I'll be moving on to April before you know it because I only have two floss colors for February, and I need to do something about March. That Leprechaun freaks me out.

Mmmm. The Heart in Hand website seems to be down. Elsewhere Heart in Hand March shows a rabbit...on stilts! The only March Leprechaun I could find was from Lizzie Kate and looks rather innocuous.

Cute finishes! Your cording is gorgeous - mine is always uneven :(

Good to get the last two needlecases finished - before you get the new one at camp in April. :)

Looks great! That bendy tree is adorable.

The finishes look great. I love the heart shaped thread holders. I took a look in my drawer the other day and saw how very many things are not finished in there. I should really do something about that...

Great finishes, the little tree looks tipsy, too much eggnog perhaps?

Lovely finishes!

Great finishes! I like what you did with the inside of the needlebook with the thread holders and securing a pair of scissors.

Beautiful finishes! I've never tried to make cording. Those little Putford scissors are so cute - I need some! Can't wait to see your mermaid progress.
