Challenge for Weekend

On Carolyn's blog she has invited others to join her in a finishing weekend and I decided to join in. The only rule was to post before and after pictures for all to see. There are 4 things I really want to get done this weekend and after the past two days go to the doctors with DH Tracy I plan to sit and stitch the weekend away. Here are the projects I plan on finishing ....

First project...
This little snowman is from the UK magazine I got a week ago. I'm stitching him for my partner in the 12 Days exchange and hope to finish it as a Bourse. I found two different fabrics for it so we'll see how it comes out since I've never made one before. Just have the backstitching to do on it now.


Second....



I plan on finishing the stitching on the Red Mitten by JBW. I'm going to make this into a little pillow shaped like a mitten or maybe leave the top open so I can stick a little something in it. This is for my seasonal shelf and the color is the same as what is on the border of the LK Dec Stamp. It stitches up pretty quick so should be able to finish it.

Third.....

Sunday I'll be working on the Just Nan SAL...Amethyst Snowflake. I want to get the rest of the outlining done on it and as long as the froggies stay away this week I should be able to get that much done.
Fourth....
No picture here but I would like to also get a couple of Scissor Fobs done. I found some really pretty beads and can't wait to see how they will look.
That's my plans for the weekend....anyone else joining in.
Until Next time with some finishes....Happy Stitching and have a great weekend

I have joined in with this too, but won't be doing quite as much as you! Time for smokin' needles again! LOL

Say, Rene ... where's this Just Nan SAL? I have Amethyst Snowflake and have been looking for an excuse to do it. I don't normally join SALs, but maybe I'll change my mind ...
