Recent Finishes

Thanks to everyone who has left a comment over the past few days, as always, its really great to hear from you :)

I haven't had a lot of time for blogging or reading the boards this week, its been a crazy hectic few days at work - one full time staff member, one part timer and one of our volunteers have been struck down with tummy bugs and flus that seem to be doing the rounds at the moment meaning the rest of us feel like we've been going around in circles, or nowhere fast as I like to say, trying to get organised for our first ever overnighter trip with our clients next week, as well as run the usual day programme. Roll on Friday is all I can say, lol.

But the good thing is I've had plenty of time for stitching. My niece came to stay with us over the weekend so rather than stitch on anything too complicated, as Zoe likes to help me make the stitches, I started and finished Flowers by Heart in Hand. This is going to be a birthday gift for a very dear friend.

Lovely finishes Katrina. The butterfly is such a pretty touch on your flower piece.
Wonderful how in your part of the world you're stitching for spring & Christmas at the same time.

I love the butterfly button. Although I don't know what I would ever use it on, it is absolutely beautiful. Congratulations on all the finishes!

Wow, you have been a busy stitcher. You'll have a lot of finishing to do - but what wonderful ornaments!

You did such a great job at finishings and my finishing work
just piles up higher. I like the
flower piece a lot and great ornament selection.

I forgot to say I love your V&L sampler finish too :) Are you going to have it framed or turn it into a bellpull?
