Three finishes in three days!





I keep putting off updating my blog. I think...I will do it after I do this....or I will do it after I do that..... If I keep that up, it will never get updated.
I wanted to wait to update until I made my April ornament into an ornament. I am not sure how quickly that will be happening. Maybe Friday...I need a FINISHING DAY.
I also keep saying I am going to wait until I can announce that I have updated my sale blog. I did update it last week & did sell somethings, but I have so much more to add to it, including some fabric I will never use.
So...here I am, to update with neither of those things ready!
First of three finishes was my squirrel, to go along with the fawn. I love how he turned out. My husband says he looks evil thou...something about the face.. He is finish # 16 for the year.
Second, was part 6 of the Easter SAL...I am truly loving this piece & I anxiously await each piece each week. Just 2 parts left.
Third, I started & finished my April ornament this weekend. This is out of an OLD JCS ornament issue.....the 1997 issue! I saw this & loved it immediately. It is finish #17 for the year. The little boy I babysit for loves trains, so he will love to see this when they get back from vacation.
This week is spring break, so I am not babysitting.
I started a freebie tonight that I found the other day....can't wait to see how it turns out & it is another that will need finished this week.
A dear friend brought me two more violet plants. They are so pretty! The one has flowers that are nearly white, but with a small patch of color on each flower. I rearranged my craft room so they are right in front of the window. Oops!! I can't find the picture...next time!!!
Lastly, I took a picture of my crocus the other day before the heavy winds destroyed it.
Thanks so much for stopping by & for your continued interest in my blog!
I would love to learn how to put words under my pictures like so many of you do, but I haven't figured that out yet!!!

Not sure I agree about the 'evil' squirrel - I thought he was cute.

All are so pretty, Shari! I don't think that squirrel looks evil at all--just cold! He's very cute... Congratulations on 17 finishes--that is great! Keep up the good work :)

Enjoy your "kid-free" week--I expect to see lots of stitching progress from you as a result :)

Nice finishes, Shari. And pretty crocus. I don't have any blooming flowers yet. Boo. :( Where is your sale blog located?

Love all your latest projects, Shari, as well as your sweet crocuses. I need to get out and snap some pics of my tulips that have started to bloom. Hurrah for Spring!

Three very cute pieces! I know what you mean about putting off updating the blog - I do it all the time!

Katie said...

Great pieces there. Keep up that gorgeous work. I would love to hear more about your fabric for sale. I like all fabric but linen. Let me know when you figure out what you want to get rid of.
