Some Sunday finishing......

Greetings everyone!!  I sure do hope your weekend was fantastic and you found some time to stitch a little....I have been working on Sarah Eliz Brooke 1842 but not enough to show you an updated progress photo......But, I did manage to do some finishing today.... I decided that each time I sat down to finish something for a customer, I would finish something for myself.....My ever-growing basket of stitched items needs a little attention!

Here is what I can show you that are MY finishes.... (Abbie, Linda W and KathyR; your finishes will be going out tomorrow in the mail!!)
**********
A while back I stitched this lovely freebie Earth Day design by Beth Twist and I fell in love with the verse...Truly words to live by this day and time...so many of us are trying....

Free Earth Day chart
Heartstring Samplery
materials I had on hand
Victorian Motto dyed rick rack

Additionally, in 2011, I stitched up the talented Lori of Notforgotton Farms 800th post freebie chart... I love anything Lori designs and this cutie was no exception.....

Notforgotton Farms freebie design
all materials as specified
Victorian Motto "antique paprika" trim

These little pooches are just too cute.......

Finally, I was able to finiah a couple gifts...... Can't really say who they are for.....Am I being sneeky?




Well, I am cutting it close..... Bye for now...I am headed to watch Downton Abbey!!!
