Merry Cox Weekend Part 2

Part 2 of my weekend in Arizona with Merry Cox

Blackbird Designs
Gathering Basket
scrap of 30 ct R & R Old Towne Blend
Called for threads
I know this seems bizarre, but I actually have a new finish from stitching on the plane rides.

Here is some stash that I brought home-
Bottom left-2 WTNT Thimble purses from the Attic
Bottom center and right-Two kits from Merry
Top left-another Thimble purse
Top center-a new ornament kit from Merry-it is featured in the current issue of Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly
Top right-Scarlett House Maddie Button from the Attic

This is some older stash that I got from the Prim Sisters and Maggie club this year thru Country Stitches.

Above is Merry's Sweet Blossoms completed.

Above is my Sweet Blossoms obviously not completed :)

Above is Merry's completed Nouveau Palais

Above is my Nouveau Palais still needing plenty of work

Above is Merry's So Dear to My Heart complete and beautiful!

Above is my So Dear to My Heart-I did get the workbox lid started, but not completed.
You know I have to be in the mood to finish-finish my projects, but it looks like that's how I could spend the rest of this year. 
My pile of other projects that need to be finish-finished has grown large again!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Wow, Teresa, you have some amazing things completed and near completion. I'm always amazed at how much stitching you seem to accomplish. Amazing how much stitching you completed on plane rides. Really have enjoyed your pics and hearing about your Merry Cox weekend.
