Goals Achieved

WOO HOO....I achieved my weekend goals with 3 finishes. I think the finishing angel must have been on my shoulder as everything went smoothly and the frogs even stayed away.

First Finish....

"IF The Boom Fits...." by Lizzie Kate
This is for my daughter Manda and will be made into a wallhanging. I'm going to use the same fabric I used for the Flatfold.
Second Finish....







I stitched the top for this Biscornu last Spring and kept putting off stitching the bottom because it was on black and I was having trouble seeing it. I have very happy with the outcome and glad it is finally finished. I think the black beads really look nice but next time I use beads on the finish I will put them in every other stitch not each stitch.
Third Finish....



"Pansies Please" by Just Nan
This was done as a SAL in my ILCS Yahoo Group. We worked on it on Sundays and I am the last one to finish. I'm not going to attempt to frame this one myself. I want it double matted and I don't think I'm ready to try to do the spacing with the beads and the charm in the center.
I really can't believe that I got everything done but want to thank everyone for their encouragement. Now I have several more Halloween projects that I'm going to be doing for myself and another friend.
Until Next Time....Have a great Stitching week

I love the biscornu, i had never heard of these till i joined ilcs. They look like addictive little things so its probably a good idea i havent tried one yet. ;o)
