Suddenly It Is December

Again, I am surprised when December arrives.  I am not sure why, but I never feel "ready" for the Holiday season and the year to end.  I am not all that wild about this time of year for some reason......

At any rate, lots of stitching going on.


Mermaid Letter "M", Nora Corbet

I picked up the frames for these two letters this week at Michaels (that was a nightmare I must say) and will post both of them as soon as they are framed.  

 I framed the two finishes I had oveor the summer.  They are not perfect, but they will have to do for now.
I do not know what I was thinking using orange foam as a spacer for this.  It certainly shows up.  I will re-do it one day.....or not.

This frame asctually had glass in it that I managed to break, so I may pull it out and pad it one of these days.  Hard to say.

Miscellaneous Ornaments Fully Finished

And speaking of finishing, I found these little plastic containers at the Dollar Tree.  I thought I would use them in my fridge, but they fit the spools of trim that I have perfectly.

A Huge Thank You to Vonna, The Twisted Stitcher.  I watched her videos and read her tutorials and have done some finishing work!

My first flat folds.    I am so impressed with myself I can hardly stand it!
I think the key is being patient and taking the time necessary.   No my strong suit....patience I mean.
They could probably use some embellishing, but I probably will never do it!

Little pillow ornaments.  

I am starting several new projects this month that I will report on as I have enough to report.

I hope your December is going well.  Thanks for visiting.


  1. I'm thinking all your finish work look fabulous. Practice makes perfect!

  2. I actually love Christas, but I'm never feeling ready for the year to end!
    Great finish on that mermaid letter, and great work with your finish-finishes as well.

  3. Great work on all your finishes. Especially the flat folds, they look lovely.
