Stitchy Update


Finish #1-Plum Street Samplers
Betsy's House
Started this one the evening of the Olympic closing ceremonies (which I didn't watch). Made a boo-boo on Betsy's dress and I can't decide whether to leave it or fix it.


Finish #2-Barbara Jackson
Tea Time Basket
 
I love, love the way this one turned out.  There are still 4 smalls that I need to stitch.


Finish #3- Red Home Quilt blocks
Natalie Bird
 
Making progress.  Slow but sure.


Jardin Prive
Carre d'Abeilles
 
Stitched in 2012, Finished in 2014. 
That's embarrassing to admit.
I still have some oldies but goodies that need finish-finishing.

I see nothing wrong with Betsy's dress, if that matters... And I look forward to seeing the smalls for the basket! But that bee pincushion by JP is just breathtaking! You did a beautiful job, both stitching and finishing! Hugs!
