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! 

Thanks for visiting!



Hugs,

Maggee

Both your finishes are super, Maggee! I think the Jingle piece would make a darling wall hanging. I look forward to seeing your PS Birdsong piece soon. Enjoy your finishing frenzy!

Vickie said...

Wonderful finishes Maggee! I do not envy you with a pile of finishing to do. I prefer stitching to finishing. ;)

You're really on a roll! And you'll be ready for Christmas decorating which is driving me nuts. Our craft store has trees out!!! Stop it!!!

Great finishes. You will be ready for the Holidays for sure!

Great finishes and good luck with your fully finishing. That is the worst part to my mind.

Brigitte said...

So lovely, your two finishes. And I'm looking forward to seeing a picture of Birdsong, a pattern that I love very much. No wonder, as it has birds on it, lol.
I also wanted to take some pictures of my stitching today but it has been raining since yesterday, so definitely no picture weather here neither.

Love the finishes and don't mind the lighting...they are pretty none the less. Can't wait to see what you get up to. Too bad we live so far apart, we could seriously have a big ole finishing day together. My box o'shame is getting pretty full. LOL!

Your stitching is lovely!!!

They both look great! Hopefully the weather will be better when you take a picture of them fully finished.
Looking forward to seeing more!

Jingle As Ye Enter is just so cute, Maggee! I love everything about it. So glad you "found" it again :) And your little Silent Night finish is darling. I've stitched that, too, but am thinking about stitching it again for a friend.

I look forward to seeing your Birdsong II progress--PS stitching is always so therapeutic for me. It truly "soothes my soul!"

Hope August is going well--enjoy your weekend!

Nice finishes, Maggee!

Two lovely finishes Maggee. I hate finishing but Vonna's tutorials really help.

Sally said...

Lovely finishes again. I love Vonna's tutorials. I have learnt so much from them.

Looking forward to seeing your PS piece.
