Finally Some Finishes!

First, please forgive my poor photography. I have so little time to stitch, I have even less time to attempt to take awesome photos of my work. My first finish is this freebie from Blackbird Designs, Petites Lettres Rouges. I used a linen I had on hand and DMC threads. The directions stated to stitch a family name into the sampler. I chose instead to honor my three children by stitching in their initials and birth years.

My next finish is a Christmas ornament for my grand-daughter. It's a Lizzie Kate snippet "1st Christmas". A year late but better than never.

Another ornament finish. Same design as above. I think I have previously posted this finish but when I compared it with my most recent finish, I realized that I had not stitched the red thingies. This one is for my grand-son. Only two years late! Now I have to get these pieces finished up as actual ornaments or they still won't have them for this coming Christmas.
My last finish is a design I started last year then put down and forgot about. It's Faith, Hope, Love from Cedar Hill Designs. I saw it on display at the old LNS a few years ago and bought it on a whim.

I'm so glad to finally have some finishes. Now I am working on another Christmas ornament by Prairies Schooler. I haven't decided yet what my next large project will be. I should probably work on an old WIP but they are old and outdated and new starts are much more fun!
I'm enjoying my much needed three day weekend despite the fact that I have spent today taking care of a sick child. I sure hope she is better by Tuesday. It would just be awful to miss the first day of school. Happy Stitches!
