IHSW with finishes!

Here's the results of my small amount of stitching time this weekend!

I dusted off a Crazy January start - Bent Creek's 'Mom' - and took it on vacation with me. I got this far:

And then finished it up during IHSW (please pardon the hoop marks)

I love the colors and my mum will flip. I stitched the matching 'Dad' back in... huh, 2004? So she's been waiting on her's for awhile! I plan to have it professionally framed to match Da's, and then give it to her on her birthday in October.

I also finished up the second ornament kit:

So yay! Two more off the ever-growing, never-shrinking list!

  5. That's quite a bit of progress for a weekend, so congratulations on finishing so much! Ornament kits are so fun; using the different fabrics is cool, and that one ended up looking great on the royal-type blue.
