A Few More Finishes

Here are a few more finishes.

This canvas piece was stitched for DD and SIL.  Due to our move in 2013, it wasn't framed and sent for Halloween that year.  I did get it framed and sent for 2014!  I'm actually stitching another right now to keep with the extra thread that was left over.  A really fun piece!

This was finished for DD and SIL as as ornament in 2014 even though it was stitched in 2013.

 This was stitched for my sweet baby girl for her first Christmas.  I had the hardest time trying to decide what to stitch.  But, I was going through my patterns and this popped out and it was absolutely the perfect one!  I love the way it turned out.

 The back:

This is the 2nd time to stitch this cute design.  Had done it for DD and SIL several years ago, and had thread left over so stitched it to keep!  Like getting 2 for 1!  I was not able to find the "correct" peppermint buttons, so I had to make my own.  Used a dowel and cut disks, and drilled the tiniest of holes and painted.  Not perfect, but not too bad either! Another fun stitch!

I think that gets me up to date through 2014.  Like I said earlier, not much done except for knitting and crocheting.  

Thanks for stopping by!
