Finishing Frenzy

My "finishing off" pile is getting smaller after a recent finishing frenzy :)

This is Friends and Flowers by Elizabeth Designs, finished into a flat fold. This was my first ever attempt at rouching ribbon for the edging.

It feels so good to have these made up and ready to go out to the intended recipients :) This week I've been stitching on a gift for a friend's birthday and I'm almost half way through "Merry Yule" by Erica Michaels, last month's kiwi ornie SAL choice from last year's JCS mag.

I'll leave my October stitching review and November goals for tomorrow. Thanks for yesterday's comments too. Happy stitching everyone!

Wow, you've been going crazy with all your finishing - and every single one is stunning! Love the latest ornies too ... I'm finally starting to think about doing some again - I've been out of the habit since the ornie SAL stopped on FGBB.

Those are gorgeous! I love Shepherd's bush, you really finished them nicely. Do you have directions somewhere on how to finish them into a flatfold? What a great idea! (forgive me, I am new to this technique) :D

All of those needlerolls are to die for *drools*

I have to add my "wowers!" to your long list of comments here. I've been out of commission on getting comments added to blogs but I must say Katrina that you have done an incredible job with your finishes! Those ribbon edges are gorgeous and I just love the flat fold finish. Your pinkeep and needleroll are awesome, too. Congratulations!
