Here's a photo of what I managed to finish yesterday at lunch break and after work.
The last three Trilogy Spring ornaments. The first is a butterfly approaching a flower made of heart shaped buttons, the second shows some very stylized flowers and the last is a shamrock for St. Patrick's Day.
The Kindred Spirits Bonus chart. Ann suggested that we finish it either as a pin pillow or a scissor fob. I decided to do both. This little pillow filled with ground walnut shells makes an excellent pin pillow and is just weighty enough to serve as a fob as well. I am not sure I am going to leave it on this pair of scissors, though. The greens clash. The handles are actually a bright kelly green. I have no idea how the indoor light managed to soften such a bright color to one that actually matches the stitching.
I still have two more heart ornaments and two more pin pillows to trim before I catch up to the smalls finishing. And then there are all those totes, a wall hanging and a few more pin pillows to sew. And that's just the stuff on the dining room table. Forget the laundry basket in what I laughingly call my stitching center which is currently over run by the boxes of stuff my husband brought home from the office when he was downsized nearly two years ago. I sometimes fear I will never catch up: not with the finishing or with the clearing out of junk!.
I will admit, though, that I am itching to do a little more cross stitching. If I am to come close to meeting my monthly goals, I really do need to return to my current projects. And, as a full blown Type A Personality, I certainly want to meet a few more of those goals!
So my plan for today: finish work on Sue Donnelly's Kindred Spirits Pin Pillow ... because I really need another pin pillow sewing finish to add to the finishing basket, right??? And then pick up The English Band Sampler tomorrow and for the remainder of the month.
