Some Finishes and Happy Mail!

I meant to post yesterday, but have you ever had one of those days where you were busy-busy-busy but got nothing done? That was my yesterday. I turned around and it was 11:00 pm. Oh, well. Here's my Mother's Day gift from Jeff and the Kids -

I'm so happy! It might help with this:

Which is what I call my "finishing basket". These are completed cross stitches that need to be backed or stuffed. I was sewing everything by hand. There are still some things that I will sew by hand, but now I can get more done! Yeah!!
Here are some finishes - just the stitching, though.

One is the Prairie Schooler Santa I mentioned in an earlier post and the other is another University of Tennessee Christmas Ornament for my UT tree.

Here's some Happy Mail from my Monthly exchange with Michelle. It's a Scissors Case and it is BEEEEutiful. Her finishing is fantastic. I'm a lucky girl to have her for my exchange partner.!!

And, finally, how can a person eat all of this, stay this skinny and then be hungry and eat a full dinner 15 minutes later? LOL!

Well, I've been chatty today! Tomorrow is Thrifty Thursday - wait until you see that deal I got! Oh and if anyone has seen our warm weather, please direct him or her back here. Pronto. I'm tired of sweater and winter coat in May!


  1. I know, it's a rhetorical question! LOL

    May his metabolism stay high always so that he may be thin his whole life. If he eats like that 10 years from now, it may catch up with him. Ouch!

    Beautiful finishes!

  2. Beautiful Mother's Day gift, Lisa! And your PS sunflower Santa is one of my favorites--I just stitched him myself for my April ornament last month!
