March Make & Take & 2 Finish-Finishes from 2009

Here is the project from the March Make & Take class at my local quilt store. I missed this class, but picked up the pattern at April's Make & Take. It turned out pretty cute! Remember, I am not a quilter! This is the first project that I used crushed walnut shells for the stuffing. It is pleasantly heavy.

18 ct white mono canvas

Called for DMC threads


It is a little embarrassing to admit that this little Easter project was completed in 2009 and sat in a box under my bed until last week. I used some adorable chenille rick-rack.

Hannah's Spot Motif Sampler (Hannah Van Buren)

White 22 ct Congress cloth

Misc silk threads


This is another one that was sitting under my bed. I could not decide on the fabric to finish her. So I finally pulled out my patriotic fabrics and thought the blue with gold stars suited her. Yes, I admit that I used the continental stitch and did not cross any X's :) This is my first stitched needlebook finish. Here is the inside-

Nice finishes! I have completed stitching from at least 4 years back waiting to be finished or framed. So two years is not bad!

What fantastic finishes! I love them all! Hey, don't we all take a while to get things finished finished? I know I do!

Such pretty finishes, Teresa! And don't feel bad about those unfinished/finishes sitting in a box under your bed for so long. I have dozens myself--the joy is in the stitching for me :)

Teresa, I wish I had such nice stuff under my bed. Instead I store my dust bunny collection there. ;) Oh, and some socks! LOL

Beautiful finishes!
