Finishing seems to be addictive. I have worked on some form of finishing every day this past week. And I am beginning to see some patches of bare wood on my dining room table. To keep things organized in the future, I think I shall bring only three finishing projects down from the storage area at a time. And once I eliminate The Berry Patch Rabbit from my rotation, I'll replace it with a formal finishing day in the rotation itself. Who knows? This may be the year I finally catch up on all my finishes! Stranger things have happened. The problem is that every time I think I have gathered all the pieces needing finishing in one place, one or two more always show up ... or I decide that something I intended to frame should be a wall hanging or finished in some other sewing fashion.
Two of Phyllis Mauer's Kogin Christmas Tree ornaments. I used hand made twisted cord [DMC Ecru] and beaded hangers on both ornaments. I used a dark green perle floss to stitch these simple little ornaments.
And I made up a small pin pillow. This is Papillion Creations' Moonlight Serenade. I used a teal fabric that picked up one of the colors in an old Needle Necessities overdyed floss, trimmed it with a bit of cotton crochet lace and trimmed the edges with hand-made twisted cord [DMC 156, 210 & 211] picking up the lavenders in the stitching floss.
