Fully Finished

I spent some time at the weekend fully finishing a couple of  ornaments.

Summer Bird by Heart in Hand
Stitched on 32 count (mystery) fabric with the recommended threads

Calendar Girl for June, by Little House Needleworks
I'm stitching all of these on 28 count vintage country mocha but on the plain side, not the variegated side of the fabric.  I'm using the recommended DMC threads

And as my sewing machine was out on the table, I made up two cross stitch project envelopes
 like the ones I've made previously for myself, using Vonna's tutorial.  
These will be for gifts this time though

I'm still only buying things when I need them, everything except the bee button and two threads came from stash, I'm happy with that :-)

Stay safe, see you soon

Love all your finishes, it's good to use our stash, I have vowed once the shops open I will still use my stash rather than purchase new.

You always finish things off beautifully, they look so professional and it certainly adds a little extra touch to the projects. The project envelopes are fabulous. I have project bags for my knitting but not for my cross stitch. That's the good thing about starting a new hobby, lots of things to buy for it, haha.

Absolutely beautiful! I love how they're finished with the cords and displayed. I've been getting on with my crochet whenever I have time to do some. Take care. Best, Jane x

You've had a wonderfully productive week, Maggie! Love the long-legged bird and your sweet June girl. Your finishing is always just perfection :) Those bags are gorgeous, too--I really need to get up my nerve and try to make one some day. Hope you have a good weekend!

Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
