A Finish & Exchange Received

I did another biscornu, this is  by Kitty & Me Designs.It is called Old-Fashioned Lazy Daisy Biscornu. It's a cute little finish

This is a biscornu I received from Bonnie in the Please Pass the Biscornu exchange.It's called O Morning Star by The Work Basket.I don't have any like this and I really like quilt patterns so this is very nice.   This is the last of these. I didn't receive two, one lady dropped out and the girl who started the exchange disappeared almost immediately after it all started.

I have a few other things going but forget to take pics of those when I have the camera out. Hopefully next time.

Getting Ready for Christmas

It's hard to believe Christmas is upon us. I decided to make stockings for my grandchildren this year. These four are for them, the two below are for my son and his wife. Now all I need to do is pack them up and send them to Alaska. My son is in the Air Force and current;y stationed there.
I have one granddaughter that lives close by so I have time to do hers.

Bouquet For Cheryl

This was a SAL with Stitcher's Showcase that we started on  January 2010, and had the whole year to do.I just finished stitching it today. It is stitched on 28ct. antique white jobelan using DMC Color Variations #4200.Now I have to decide how I want to frame it.

My Hand at Sewing

I needed a couple of accent pillows for the  bed and thought I could make some even though I'm a little intimidated by the sewing machine. I've made a few things before, some you could tell what they were supposed to be some not. Anyway I found a pattern for pillows called Sewing For Dummies. I had been wanting a round neck roll pillow and it just happened to have one in it. It really was quite simple to make this one.I'm really happy with it.Now I just may try some others.
The picture is very good, I guess too much light. The bedspread is a misty jade color and it looks white in the pic.But the pillow looks good and hubby really liked it. That's always good.

A Few FInishes

 This biscornu is from Classic Stitches magazine. It is called Honey Bees. It is stitched on 28ct. off white jobelan with the recommended threads. I put a flower bead in the center.   

This design is a freebie from Kreinik. I don't remember the name of it. I've had it stitched for  awhile but didn't know how I wanted to finish it.Finally decided to do as a box.

 And this is another one that has been stitched for awhile. I've seen other bloggers make these cute little pillows, so I decided to try my hand at it. I need some more practice at the sewing machine. It is a design by Elizabeth's Designs called Dragon III.
