Wow. I actually managed to get not one, but THREE projects stitched up and not only that but finished as well. =:O. Yes, they were all holiday related and quick stitches, but they are projects I've wanted to do for quite some time now.

My finishing isn't the best in the world, and one day I hope to have all the tools to do them up properly, but I am happy with the way they turned out. :)

Hope you all enjoyed them. I am off to finish a fourth ornament which I hope to have posted within the next day or two. :)


Respectfully submitted,

Wonderful finishes! I especially like the Joy ornament! Poo on it being retired!

Congratulations on your finishes! They all came out beautiful. I liked the way you finished Christmas Alphabet with the little ring on top and the lace around the edges. I have been wanting to decorate my edges on my finishes, but just haven't figured out a good way of doing that yet. Little by little, we achieve these abilities!
Take care.
