Progress Photos

I have had a few more than two dozen sewing and assembly finishes sitting on the ironing board for quite sometime.  Most are ornaments but there are a fair number of pieces that need to be finished as totes and pillows.  I finally got a start on them, but only a start.  Here's the photo: one more of the La-D-Da cardinal Christmas ornaments and a half-finished project bag.  I still need to make the pockets in the lining and then sew it and handles to the bag.  For some reason I don't seem to have much enthusiasm for sewing and finishing just now.  I need to psyche myself up so that I can get into one of my finishing frenzies and get this all done.

I also finished the Indy 2006 Town Square series' The Silversmith Shop.  It calls for a Charland charm to be sewn on the door: a sterling silver sign with a Revere bowl.  But I think it looks complete without it.  Besides, since I used a higher count fabric than originally charted in order to make it fit in with my Ornament project, I suspect the charm would be disproportionately large for the door.  Now, it gets added to the ever growing finish & assembly pile.

I also got a lot done on Dragon Dreams' Dragon of the Winter Moon, as can be seen in this photo.  I do still have the moon to stitch and the beading in the mountain range to do but I am nearly there.  It has been my primary focus for the past few days and will be until I finish it.

I know just what you mean about the 'finishing'. I can't make myself do it either. Luckily, I have a friend who is good at it and actually enjoys it so I sent it all to her!! Congrats on getting even a small part of that pile done!! Laura

I do have to be in the right mood for finishing too!

The dragon is looking great, it was a good idea to backstitch the castle.

Yay to you for finishing the Silversmith piece and nearly finishing the dragon one. I have to be in the mood for finishing. My last bout of it I mainly just did simple pillow finishes... because the pieces had borders on them already. But I want to try to do a different type soon... best look in my drawer and see what I have! Hugs!

The Silversmith Shop looks wonderful, I lovely variable blue for the brickwork.
