As January Closes

One of my goals for 2010 is to working on completing some of my projects, so I have been trying to work on my finishing at least once per week. Here are the results of some of my efforts.
It's Fine-ally Finshed: Pineapple Treat Pinkeep
Make it-Take it Kit from Celebration of Needlework 
  Back with scissors.

It's Fine-ally Finished: Merry Christmas Ornament Make It-Take It kit stitched on linen banding.

This finish was for an exchange on the Legacy BB. My partner Nancy has posted that she has received it so I can post pictures now.

Each participant in the exchange was to stitch a Quaker inspired motif and finish any way you desired. I stitched a motif from Quaker Trifles by R&R in WDW Deep Sea. The larger motif is on the front and the smaller on the back. This needlebook is hinged with ribbon so that the neddlebook can be opened from the left or right without the needlepage falling out. While I remembered to a picture of the outside I forgot to get a picture of the inside. I will try to get a picture the next time I make one of these.  

Thanks for stopping by,

Hi Gwen, how are you girlfriend?? Hope to see you one of these Friday's!! once the weather lets me drive the two hours to get to the stitch in.

Love the finishes - it seems we are all trying to get things stitched and finished up - I have a long WIP list.
