My Other Finish From Yesterday...

"Bless This Home"
From Dimensions
Designed by Angela Staehling
Finished August 17th, 2014
 
So, I was a little busy yesterday with the crafting... To be fair though, there was just the backstitching in the quilt area and a few french knots left to do... I was motivated... And then I went to see Expendables 3... Busy day...
 
For the record, I am not religious in any way.... My stitching seems to be trending that way though... Weird... :D

Birthday Present!!!


"I'm Actually a Mermaid"
From CloudsFactory
Finished August 17, 2014
 
I made a pillow!!!! So proud of myself... This was hand stitched, because I really suck at using the machine... I think it turned out awesome, especially for the first time I made a pillow... Like, ALL OF IT!!!! I even had to do surgery of the pillow-form because it was round-ended, and I wanted rectangular... Yes, it's a franken-pillow-form... The back fabby is from Wal-Mart... I think it matches loverly... So excited!
 
Finishing Prowess = leveled up!!!

Goodbye, my friend!


"Leap of Faith"
From Bucilla
Finished June 26th, 2014
 
 
Framed about 2 hours before it was given... Lots of time, right? I figured this was very appropriate, seeing as how this girl is going to the Yukon to serve in a remote community for 5 weeks, and then in the fall she's off to Alberta for Bible College... We spent last night with co-workers past and present, eating, and then hanging out around a fire pit and watching fireworks... She will be missed...

Easter Bunny!


"On The Hop"
From CrossStitcher Magazine # 277
Designed by Sarah Cookland
Finished April 12th, 2014
 
I wanted to do something quick and easy because I feel like I've fallen behind on my resolutions... This literally took less than an hour to stitch... I popped on some jump rings and put it on a chain instead of the silk cord the magazine calls for... I think it turned out really cute, and I will be wearing it to work for the next few days...
 
Until I go on my short vacation, that is... Yup! I've booked 6 days off around the Easter holiday... I needed some time away from work... This includes a couple of days with the family in Ottawa, so good times shall be had... Kicking the whole thing off with a visit to Port Huron and their lovely craft stores...
 
Just have to get thru the next 4 days of work...
