Our weather is very misty and humid so taking pictures of late is nearly impossible...But, here you go.... Since I am having a terrific week at school (*Teacher Appreciation Week*), I thought I would post a few goodies.... I have managed to do a couple finishes the last 2 nights.... Can't really elaborate more than that since they are gifts....Let me just say, not only were these a quick stitch, but a quick finish too~ As you see the first is a stocking ornament (love those!) and the next is a crushed walnut filled pincushion....Hope the homes they are headed to will enjoy~~
And, to top off my great day, I had the most precious ornament in the mailbox today~~ Carol S made me a Christmas ornament as part of the Hooked on Exchanging blog... I absolutely LOVE it and if you know Carol, you know this finish is awesome~~~ Beautiful job Carol!!

Great finishes! Love them :-)

Happy you're having a good week, teacher appreciation is a fun week at schools! I used to be in PTA when my kids were little and planning/executing that week was always a blast! And the teachers were always soooo thankful and happy!
