Some more ornaments

I have finally made some more ornaments.  Here is May OHD 2011 SAL.

Here is July OHD 2011 SAL:

Lastly, is my Quaker WIP.  I saw where I got pink marker on the upper right corner.  I cleaned it and it is faded but I am afraid there might be a small spot once it is framed.  I am too invested to not finish it, guess it just adds character.


Thanks for letting me share.

Ink Circles Ornament finished

Hi,

Here is my ornament finished.  I am very bad about finishing my projects once they are stitched but this was very easy.

Thanks for letting me share.

A great find

I usually like to poke around at the local thrift store.  I have bought several older magazines and charts in the last few years.  Today was my greatest find yet.  I got 18ct Ecru Aida and LHN Home of a Needleworker for $.39.  I was so excited.


I also got a black frame at Big Lots to frame something I made my husband last year.  It was only $12.00.  I just need to go to get some foam core so I can frame it.

Thanks and have a great day.

Biscornu finished




I just finished this biscornu. It was a freebie located at http://aupaysdesbiscornus.over-blog.com
and it is #77. I used Carrie's Silk Thread in Thanksgiving and Sassy's Fabby 32ct Lugana in Carmel Corn. Unfortunately Lauren doesn't carry this color any more but she has a lot of gorgeous colors.

Bee Welcome Wallhanging


I had this stitched for awhile now and finally got to the sewing machine to finish making it into a wall hanging. I really love the soft colors. I put it in the foyer so you can see it as you walk into the house.
This was a complimentary pattern from Abi on her stitchingbee blog. The button is a sheep.
Thanks for letting me share.

Ink Circles By The Full Moon finish


Just thought I would post a pic of my finish. It is Ink Circles By the Full Moon from the Sept/Oct 2010 JCS magazine. I stitched it on 32ct PTP Sprite Belfast.
I have several things to make into ornaments and 1 biscornu to assemble. I hope to post pictures next week.
Thanks,
Mary
