Not 1, 2, or 3, but 4 Finishes!

Yes, I said I have FOUR finishes to show!

Wednesday afternoon found me finishing 'A Day at the Beach'.

A Day at the Beach
by Country Cottage Needleworks

Once I finished 'A Day at the Beach' I decided I better pick up Red Birds and get it done before the holidays found me wishing I had gotten busy this summer. Last night I was down to the white - one color left. This afternoon I had another finish!

Red Birds
by Marie Barber
 I decided my two patriotic pillows looked lonely on my bookshelves and I needed to get some done. With that in mind I shopped my stash and found this little freebie.

Liberty
by Lizzie Kate
And I also found this one. I did a little trade with the charms. The sterling flag should have gone on Hooray but I liked it better on Liberty. Both patterns called for the same charm and the star charms looked better to me on Hooray. By the time it becomes a pillow that star may still come off.

Hooray for the USA
by Lizzie Kate
Tomorrow finds me pulling threads for this. But first, I have a million bobbins to put back in the boxes. I have a bad habit that I'll pull the floss for a project but I don't put it away immediately. It piles in my drawer until I have to fish through it for another project.

Went to a coach pitch baseball game this evening. I had forgotten until tonight how much I love baseball. My nephews (my husband's step sisters boys) are great players. It may be near the end of the season but I hope to go see them play again next week. Maybe I'll remember my camera and show you some action shots!

This weekend is to be blazing hot. Both DH and Logan are working all weekend - what should I do?? Gonna have to give it some thought.

Hope you find something wonderful to do!
Denise

Oh my! Red Birds finished! And what a great piece!! I just saw a cardinal in my backyard a minute ago! Such a wonderful piece, as is the Beach. I look forward to seeing the patriotic pillows! I have to finish my current project today so I can start some patriotics--I get so inspired reading blogs! Hugs!

Oh I love them all!! The Red Birds are amazing!! I know yyou will enjoy them come Christmas. I LOVE the Day at the Beach. I think I may have to get that one as it would go perfectly in my new bathroom! (It's almost done) Today we are finishing up the spackeling, put up the wainscoat and paint next. Good Luck with your new start. I can't wait to see it.

Congratulations on all of your finishes! I really love the red birds. Can you tell me where I can find the pattern and how big it actually is? My aunt loves cardinals and it might be a good project to give to her.

Your Red birds are so pretty. I am looking forward to finishing mine as I collect cardinals and have a place for the piece to hang.
