My Finishing Pile............

Is almost done! I really can't quite believe I've finally got my butt into gear and finished stuff I stitched last year. I mean come on it's March! So I'll quit rambling on and show what I've done.

All stitched last year!

My Big Toe Designs A New Day, hanging pinkeep finish with gathered  ribbon edging.


Silver Creek Samplers Dandy Dreams, hanging pinkeep with gathered ribbon edging.


Blackbird Designs Needlecase from Peacock Pin Keep. 



Tra La La Snowman, big pinkeep with chenille trim.

I just have CCN Snowflake Serenade and The Cat's Whiskers Joyeux Noel to finish off now and I'm up to date-almost!

Some progress on Blackbird Designs AotH Swan Lake. I finally got those darn swans done. Fingers crossed I'll have this finished by the end of March. I think this weekend if IHSW so I'll probably stitch on HAED Guardian as well as this. 

My red basket. 

I've finished two RAKs, well one is a thank you really, and they are going in the post in the next couple of days:) I've also finished Heartstring Samplery I Sew'd My Heart but I've been sitting here looking blank trying to blur out my maiden name with our photo editing software and can't work it out so I'll leave showing that for another day. I'm hoping my DH will know how! I have to say that this is my favourite finish so far this year :)

That's it for today. Thanks for visiting me :)

Much love

Sally
