Some finishes

Well, here's a picture of #3 and his "new" truck. It's great and he is thrilled with it! I'm jealous!! Yesterday turned out to be busy and today the same, so not many finishes to show, but I did get some things done.The pictures are below of the finished stitches. One is a Blackbird Designs freebie, done in the suggested DMC. I will stitch it again all in one color, I think. The other is a Prairie Schooler design. I love their snowmen! I will definately stitch this one again - it went fast! The floss tag is a freebie from Little House Needleworks. I didn't do a great job on the finishing, so I will keep that one for myself or else take it apart and make it an ornament. I know what I did wrong now and sometimes that's the only way to learn!! On Thursday I will be listing more charts on ebay and I will post the link here if anyone is interested. Thanks, Jules, for the suggestion! The picture I am most excited about is the suitcase. We leave on Friday (#1's Birthday, too) for TN and will be there until Tuesday. Only 2 of the kids are going, the rest have to stay here and work. I will be posting from there, I think, as well. I know you all (all 11 of you) can't live without my riviting posts! Well, take care and keep stitching!!


  1. Very cool that you are going to TN for a few days! I am so looking forward to my vacation in DeWitt, MI (near Lansing) this June!!!

    Your stitching pieces look great!

  2. Your stitching is very beautiful.

    Will you send me your email address please? You are one of the winners in my PIF. Thank you so much. vml421 @ yahoo . com

  3. Congrats on all your lovely finishes. And congrats to #3 on his "new truck"!

    I have to ask, why do you put skates in the oven???

  4. LOL - Guess I should have explained that a little better (the skates in the oven, that is). Getting them warm breaks in the new leather. It's a hard process on the feet to break in new skates and this helps. I wouldn't recommend it, but it worked for #2. After you "bake" them, you put them on your feet and tie them up. Then you sit around and watch Sports Center or have a snack. THe insides mold to your feet. Equipment shops will bake skates for you,too. Thanks for the comment!!

  5. Lovely finishes! Have a sunny and wonderful vacation
