The Joy of Finishing.....

I finally got around to "finishing" some of the finishing I started this past weekend. All of the stitching is from prior years and has been patiently waiting in the "pile" (you know the one I am talking about)!

LK Flip-It "April"

I love these designs but but wanted to do something different to display them so I got the idea to stitch them on kitchen towels and then appliqued coordinating towels to display in my kitchen. I stitched this towel last year but just finished the others just in time to use for April! I love the way they are turning out and need to get busy on May!

LK "Love Letters"

I stitched this last year but couldn't decide how to finish so I opted for a little pillow. After stuffing, it looks a little "wanky" but I can live with it.

This one really looks "lumpy" and the more I stuffed and played with it the worse it got so I just stopped. It reminds me of a wiener dog and I have no idea how I will use it, but DH liked it. I may go back and add a hanger.

LK "Gather a Harvest of Love"

LK "Harvest Blessings"
BC "First Moon Colony"

Missing is my Christmas ornament for my monthly SAL. I had problems with my bobbin on my sewing machine as I was sewing it together and it turned out as a disaster as a pillow ornament. I think I can salvage the stitching and will have to figure out another way to finish it.

Oh well...I still have a few more things to stitch together and hope to get to them this weekend. On the down side, I have only stitched one night this week but hope to rectify that this weekend!

Thanks for all your comments and I truly enjoy visiting all of your blogs to see what you are stitching! I am amazed how many ideas I steal....I mean borrow from others! Oh to dreamland! Happy stitches.
