FINISHED AT LAST

I finally have delved into my UFO box and finished 2 projects and I still have about 6 more to go.


This one is from Xmas 2009. It was a sew along from Gail Pan and I had finished the stitcheries but couldn`t decide on how to finish. I decided to add an extra border and add some more words explaining that it was what I wanted at Xmas time and then I just sewed on and it was finished.


This is a doily that I started at a workshop nearly 2 years ago. It is Butterflies and Blossoms by Leanne Beasley and was easy to do except for adding the ricrac, I didn`t have the right size ricrac and it was hard to get it on where you could see it on the border. Much reverse sewing to get it right and it still is not even all the way around. But I guess a bloind man would be happy to see it.

Love your Christmas quilt. So much work, but well worth it. The other little stitchery turned out lovely too and I really wouldn't worry about the edge. It's perfect as it is!
