Some Friday Finishing

Hi folks, well another week has rolled around and in the blink of eye it will soon be the 1st December! Then the countdown to Christmas begins :)



I spent a bit of time at the sewing machine the other day and made up some little pillows using the stitched pieces that I'd not long finished. I found this piece of lovely trim in one of our craft boxes at work. Boy oh boy, do we have some goodies in that trim box!!

French Country Angel by JBW Designs


Merry Christmas by Threadwork Primitives


At the moment I'm stitching away on the last of my 2010 ornaments, the end is in sight! A little parcel of new stash arrived on Friday with the last of the Christmas Rules charts so I hope to get a bit more done on that later this week. I've also been thinking about what my holiday project is going to be - every year when I start my annual summer holiday just before Christmas I pick out a new design to start. Last year I stitched Its Berry Time by Blackbird Designs, the year before it was Blessings and Kind Wishes by Blackbird Designs, and before that, I quite can't remember off the top of my head but I'm pretty sure it was a BD design too, lol. I guess I should be going with one again this time, any suggestions??


Thanks for stopping by and a big hi to all the new posters to my blog, so lovely to hear from you :)

I think I need to move to the southern hemisphere--summer hols right before Christmas...that's how I could get everything done in time for Dec. 25! Lovely finishes; I like how you did the "Merry Christmas" pillows.

Oh Wow your finishes are gorgeous. I love all the fabrics you chose.

I love your finishes. I made a small cushion similar to your angel, but definitely need to try something like your ones using two different fabrics on the front as well as the stitched piece, looks so effective.
