Sunday Finishes




I have made a New Years Resolution , to have Sundays as my finishing day. I finish what I had cross stitched during the week and things that are sitting in a big box. Yesterday I did quite well. I put together the ornaments and then the cubes. Sewed up the halloween banner. Then when DS#2 came home he helped me make the cording for the ornaments. The Frog cube is a gift ti my dad, his birthday is Wednesday and I did the cording as it is more masculine than a bow. The Hats cube is for my mom, whose birthday is in March. I will look for Red Hat wired ribbon to finish it. The ornaments are mine as well as the Halloween banner.

While sewing I also was fixing lasagna and taking DS#1 to work. I picked Sundays to do finishings as DS#2 and DH work from 7am-2:30 so I have the house pretty much to myself. DS#1 doesn't bother me.

I also cross stitched for about an hour on Sam Sarah's A Year Full of Happy. I am on July now.

Today is ornament stitching day. So I will stitch one sports ornaments and then a freebie, I started, a while ago, by Cricket Collection.

What a great idea! I should probably do something similar, as I have ornaments from last year piling up.

Wow, Shelleen! Everything looks fantastic, and what a great idea of doing finish work once a week! I have tons of things in a plastic box, just waiting for me to finish. Everything is beautiful, Shelleen. I've really enjoyed seeing your finishes!
