Holiday Hootie is finished

Good afternoon everyone,
I hope everyone is having a great day!  Today is the first day of Kindergarten for my youngest son.  They stagger it for Kindergarten where they split the class into 1/3's and they take turns going Mon, Tues and Wed and then start school as usual on Thursday. 

Well I finished Holiday Hootie by Fresh Threads.  I didn't expect to work on this WIP but I felt compelled to at least finish 1 Christmas item this year.  Every year when I hang the ornaments on the tree I always ask myself why didn't I make new ones to fill the tree.  I must admit my favorite holiday to stitch for is Halloween.  Don't know if I will have time to make any for Halloween either but we will see.

I am not sure how the string got there (on the moon) but it isn't there now.  That is what I get for being in a hurry.  Anyway, my youngest son wants me to make him a pillow.  He is like his mom and just loves pillows.  I will wait a few weeks to make sure he is settled into school before I make the hour drive into Virgina to get fabric. 
I also pulled this unfinished finish out.  I had it stitched but that was it.  It is a freebie from 2009 Sanman Originals members only.  I wish I did a little better because it isn't hanging correctly but I am rusty.  At least it is for me and I love it anyway.
Thanks for letting me share and have a wonderful week.



  1. Nice finishes and your June ornament is just cute...quite a few of pillows turn out like this...not sure why, though.

  2. Good morning Mary~
    I love your little Hootie. How cute to hang on the tree. So many colors. The little pillow too is great for June. Bright sunny colors. Excellent stitching.
    I'm doing Autumn and Halloween stitching right now. Enjoying one on Pumpkin Aida from Sassy's and just black thread. Love it!
    You have a wonderful week.
