Three Days & Three Finishes!




I have three new finishes.....granted, they aren't real big, but they are finishes & 2 of them are actually FULLY finished!
The first one is an ornament for a RR I was involved in. This was the last one I had to stitch, so my obligations for them are done. I just have to wait patiently for mine to return to me!
I finished the CCN ornament on Monday evening. I got it, along with the others, mailed to their owner on Tues. morning.
Tues. evening, I stitched a little freebie I found on Daffycat's blog.

I put this little one together this afternoon. I just found it too cute to not stitch...Funny thing is....we never did Santa with our children! But, this was an 'instant gratification' stitch for me.
Yesterday, I worked on another ornament. This was a freebie from the Sampler Girls blog a few years ago I believe....I am not certain on that fact.
I finished it into the ornament this afternoon.
Now, I will go back to a few WIP pieces, until we get invaded by little people again!! Yes, the boys are coming back!
I have attached a picture of the new paint in our living room. We did this last weekend & I tell you what!!! I love the new color! It makes the room so warm & cozy! And some of my stitched pieces POP on the walls. If you read back in my blog, you can see the wall with the old color & then compare it with the new color!
Thanks for reading & for commenting. It always brings a smile to my face to see the comments!

Great finishes, we have the same one on our blogs today! I finished the Sugar Plum ornament today too. Your new paint job looks nice. Funny how just a little color can make all the difference.

Your newly painted room looks great, Shari and doesn't your BP look wonderful against that color!

Cute little ornaments--it is fun to see how everyone finishes off Sharon's "Believe" ornament, isn't it?

Enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving with your little helpers!

Yay Shari! You did a great job!
All 3 ornaments are adorable.
"Believe" is in my "to do" pile,too.

Your new paint color really adds to the beauty of your stitching. Isn't it funny how colors can change the entire look and feel of a room?

I'm sure the boys will make your Thanksgiving.. Oh, HAPPY DAY!
