A Few More Finishes

I actually finished something off my *real* list from Jayne's challenge! I had started 4th of July Bird last June and it was 1/4 the way done.

As of yesterday ~
4th of July Bird
Heart in Hand
14ct aida (no idea the color)
Recommended Flosses
The other day I finished another that I had listed on Jayne's challenge that I hadn't started yet. See I had told Jayne that I didn't have that many WIP's and that I had a list I wanted to do this year - she told me to put them on the list and get busy. Ha - haven't even gotten half of those done.

Pumpkins
Little House Needleworks
28 ct linen
my own colors
The floss had this weird variegation in it and the right pumpkin got a pink spot. It has since been corrected but I was too lazy to get a new photo.

Yesterday I was feeling a bit victorious about the 4th of July bird - so I pulled out 4 more in this series to do. I already had the fabric cut for them and the frame is made - I just need to stitch and pop them in the frame as the season rolls round. But, I found this little one sitting in the box and thought it would make a quick stitch.

Little Pumpkin in the Patch
Heart in Hand

That takes me up to 29 finishes this year. And I thought I was hot stuff last year with 25! Do you think I can make it to 40 this year?

It's dinner time and I have nothing planned. Macaroni and cheese sound wonderful!

You're a stitching maniac! They all look great and I have no doubt that you'll reach 40 finishes by the end of the year.

Beautiful finishes! I love the 4th of July bird.

Jane said...

40 sounds very achievable at the rate you're stitching, I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being even more! 4th of July bird is great, I've stitched Summer and have all the other seasons but they're rather a long way down the pile!!!
Have a great week xxx
