FANTASTIC FINISHING FRIDAY!!!!



Well, today was a day for finishing! This is the 3rd week I have done this & I must admit, I really like it. The feeling is great to have so many things done.

I wasn't able to totally finish some of the things today, but they are real close. I need a run to Joann's or Michael's or Hobby Lobby for ribbon. The stuff I have isn't right for these projects.

Before I start telling about them, I need to tell about a new finish today, that wasn't cross stitch related. My best friend came over & together we made 8 hanging towels for kitchens. I am getting a head start on Christmas!!!! I can see these being great gifts! I know I love the one she made for my birthday!!! I am attaching a picture of them.

After she left, I started my finishings. I totally finished the Merry Yule piece. It was an ornament from the ornament SAL last year.

Bloom needs a really pretty piece of ribbon for it, & then the pins put in. Joy needs a piece of ribbon & pins. Garden needs a nice ribbon as well. Pumpkin also needs a ribbon. Gosh, I hear a pattern here. The photo album needs a piece of cording around the stitched piece.

My excitement stitching for the week was my mail art project. I got it finished & in the mail. I mailed it 2 weeks before the deadline, but I had it done, so I wanted to get it sent. I cannot wait for the reaction of my exchange partner. I LOVED how it turned out & I hated to part with it. I will post pictures of it after I know that she received it!!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone & thanks for looking at my blog!!
