Finishing progress

Today at lunch I worked on the finish work for the finished ornament that I have. I completed all of the beadwork trip and have just the remainder side to completed and it is ready to display.

Last night I twisted the cord with a charcoal grey and a bright rayon metalic yellow... and then I am using purple beads to accent...
The back fabric is just FUN!!! and playful!

In this pic you can see the little flower like knot that I am placing on each side. Then I am adding the small tassels. It is just such a FUN piece.

This has been such a fun fun piece!!!!

Thank you for looking!

Quick update: new start and 2 finishes!


Hallow Eden - Plum Street Sampler

Always start out with the best thing! A NEW START!!! This piece is so cool to stitch!!! I just loved stitching this S -snake! I have a fear of snakes but he is a cutie patootie! I usually do love stitching Plum Street Sampler charts though!

This is Lizzie Kate Fresh from the Garden Needlebook and pin cushion. I did get the kit of the pre-made pieces to go with this ... and LOVE the way they turned out!!! I had a blast stitching this and it went so fast!!!! What a fun piece!

This was a piece from the JCS regular Halloween Mag Issue... It is by Brittercup Designs... called Stitchy Kitty. I found this fun scrap of fabric at Keepsakes cross stitch shop in Ohio. This was just PERFECT for this piece... it has that spotting that lays in just the right places! I am in the process of finishing this piece now! I will post pics of it when it is completed!

This is a pic with it besides the mag pic of the finished piece... How fun is this ! I am not crazy about Cats (was attacked as a child and had a Rabbies scare) but this is soooooooo adorable ... I had to stitch it!

I have so many that I want to start now... so I hope I will get so start some of them and of course finish them too!

Keep crossing those stitches!!!
