Ooops... one more July finish and a small August one!

Hello! That saying, 'Out of sight, out of mind, really DOES apply here! I had finished 'Jingle as Ye Enter' by Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe  in July, and I put it in with the finishing pile... totally forgetting to snap a picture of it! Yesterday, I took ALL of my finishing projects out, and look what I found!

Believe it or not, this is stitched on a light linen fabric! It has been raining here... so the light is awful for picture taking. Just imagine it on a cream colored linen... I haven't decided if I am going to frame it or make a wallhanging! oh the Suspense! :)

Then, beginning of August, I whipped out this little cutie by Little House Needleworks, called Silent Night of course! It will be a hanging ornament... But then I intend to stitch it again, and make either a flatfold or something along those lines that will NOT hang on a tree... Again, believe it or not, this is stitched on a piece of  36-count R&R Expresso ... shaking head sadly...

Next I have started stitching a largish piece, called Birdsong II, by Prairie Schooler. Love it! It is on a piece of 32-count Cream Linen that I purchased years ago, with the chart... when it was NEWish! So I'm using it! Kinda nice to use a larger count, plus I seem to be flying along. I am nearly half done! I TRIED to take a picture, but it came out SO dark, twice... forget it! 

Well, that is all this post. My NEXT post should be chock FULL of finishes, as I have taken them all out and have them ready to be started. Tho I tend to need better light, so maybe I shall start in earnest tomorrow! But they won't be done for a few weeks... Yes, I have that much!! Sigh... I will be reviewing Vonna's techniques, as her finishing is always par excellence! If you don't know about this gem, go visit her at Vonna's Blog ... you might be there for HOURS!
