A finishing frenzy!

I spend the bulk of the day yesterday finishing my seven ornaments that I have completed so far this year. And I love them all. I don't want to give any away! :-) But one is already personalized (Britty Puppy) so that will go and one really isn't my style (Mosey N' Me) so that will also go. But the others are all mine. And I still need one more to give away. So I will stitch one more - the Christmas Heart from La-D-Da from last year's JCS ornament issue. It should go super quick and it's very cute when put into ornament form. And if I want to make one for me, it won't take forever.

As for stitching since I've been off work, I've been plugging alone with block seven of the Village. Even though this is one of the least stitched blocks, its still slow going. But I should finish up by tomorrow evening. I hope! I need to get a start on part 3 of Marquior. I'm so behind on my two BAPs! I'll post a picture of the Village tomorrow.

I have to work for a little bit tomorrow - my boss is having a meeting in Lake Forest just down the road from my house. So I have to go and make sure everything is just so. But it's worth the time on my day off. I'll get to use my corporate credit card so I'll get the points. I've been saving my points for over two years now and I have almost enough for a cruise! :-)

Great finishing. Stitching is easy for me, finising is another story. They are very beautiful.

They are all so cute. I especially love the cardinal, I just got some great red linen, I may have to pull the threads and stitch it :-).
