Friday Finishes

Wheww! I just about made this post for Friday finishes! I've barely been able to pick up a needle this past week what with appointments and kids' events and family concerns all in the mix.

This is my first finish - it's a sweet pear pattern from Samplers and Santas blog~
And the other pattern I finished was also from Samplers and Santas - really love the wool bag it's stitched onto~

This is a better picture without the flash as it shows it as it really looks - the frayed edge was a nice touch that I saw on the original by Marly~

I've a wish list of things to make that is longer than my arm so we'll have to see if things even out somewhat!

Hope you are all well and have a great weekend!

Best wishes


  1. What fun projects! I love the pillow. Turned out great!
    Don't know if I told you yet but I reopened my 'Parsley' Seasons blog. Hope to see you there.

  2. I really like looking at what you have been working on, isn't that the way it is, being so busy with family you just hardly have time to pick up a needle. I tried the other day with people in the room talking did you know I ripped out almost every stitch I took.
    I am behind on my cross stitching. It has just been too busy. I am glad you got some things finished though,
    Have a great weekend.

  3. Love the pillow! Have a great day!

  4. Beautiful stitches.
    I love the colors too.
    Have a great weekend Sweet Friend.

  5. Your creations are beautiful! Enjoy your weekend.

  6. Doesn't it feel great to finally finish a project? You did a good job on both. The second is my favorite though because I am a sucker for the colors you chose. They all go together beautifully. Good job Christitne.
    Have a great weekend. -Steph-
