Third time's the charm....

Well..I have wanted to finish this the prior two weekends but to no avail. I was able to join some new stitching friends yesterday and made good progress. I put the last stitch in Saturday night and am really happy with it. Hopefully, I can have it framed soon. I think I will celebrate by starting something new.

La D Da "Old Glory Angel"

Ah....the joys of finishing. I spent some time today working on finishing and it proved to be a chore! I was so hoping to have a lot of stuff to show, but it is only half-way done.

Trying to find just the right fabric led to reorganizing my bin of fabric and that resulted in a two hour diversion. Once I got back on track, my sewing machine started giving me fits and my patience wore thin. After some tough love and choice words, it began to cooperate and I trudged through. I still need to stuff the little pillows and ornaments but hope to finish this week. Had hoped to stitch today but it just never came to be. Oh well....think I will make it an early evening. Happy stitches!


  1. She is beautiful. Happy dance for you.

  2. Great finish!! She is really beautiful. Don't we all have to go through that "let's get these finished up" once in a while...not always fun, but usually worth it in the end. Hope you have enough stuffing.

  3. I absolutely adore that Liberty Angel...I think I'm going to have to find that pattern someday soon :)
    Your finishing looks successful...just finishing touches left now, I bet ;)

  4. She looks great!! Your finishing trials remind me so much of me lol
