 The HIH piece is a WIP left from last years start challenge I had for myself in June. I started something like 15+ projects and now have less than 5 to finish! Not too shabby.

It was suggested to me to frame Snowman Photobooth - I knew I had the perfect paint for the frame. Next winter this can see the light of day!


I finished this pillow in my frenzy two weeks ago. It has been sent out and I thought I would go ahead and show it. 
                             

It was a beast to finish! Started out I wanted a ruffle. Make the ruffle and put it on only to mess up the stitched linen. I had forgotten to use interfacing on the stitching. Tear it off. Put on the interfacing. Start again this time without the ruffle. Put the border on the sides - wrong. Try again - got it! Then the other two sides and wowsers it is the beginnings of a pillow! Search through my buttons and come up with 4 matching ones - miracle of all miracles. This turned out better than I had first envisioned.

DH is picking up Penso's Pizza for dinner. We have more than enough leftovers to eat - but am I going to complain about not heating them up? Nope.

Hard to believe the weekend is quickly wrapping up. Where does the time go? That means tomorrow is Monday - I've got to get groceries - anyone want to volunteer for that job. I'll pay for them but hate shopping and putting them away.

TTFN -
Denise
