More Finishing!

I am happy to say that there is a light at the end of this tunnel!

BBD Autumn Song Pincushion
Trimmed with chenille
Stuffed with part fiberfill and crushed walnut shells

Christmas Eve
Stitched in 2011
Sampler Girl freebie
Beaded edge finish

A new finish!
Longaberger basket top
L'Atelier Perdu bonus pattern for 2011 Mystery
I modified it a little to add the date.

Prairie Schooler Santa
Finished as a large tag--this form was sent to me by Carolyn when she cleaned out her finishing supplies-thanks, Carolyn!

Another new finish!
Blackbird Designs Summer Stars Pincushion
From A Stitcher's Journey
R & R Reproductions Olde Towne Blend
Called for threads
Trimmed with chenille and stuffed with fiberfill & crushed walnut shells

Quaker Christmas Holly
The Workbasket
I put 3 red jingle bells in the center
Mystery linen and substituted DMC threads for called for Gloriana

Last one for today, and I need some help as I can't find the name of the design or designer. I got the wooden candlestick holder at my LQS.  DH stained it for me and added a small dowel in the middle. Hopefully it looks like a tree!

There is only Gentle Stitches (Shakespeares Peddler), Autumn Song (box), and a set of smalls by Praiseworthy Stitches left to finish!  Woo Hoo!  I am not going to count the 3 items that my local finisher has--out of sight, out of mind :)
