Finished and finishes! Lots of pictures!

This is a real picture heavy post, sorry about that! Here's my latest finish, Truly Thine from Blackbirds Designs. I think it might be Loose Feather number 6 maybe. I still want to stitch the heart from this design. I used called for threads and fabric. Wouldn't this look nice in a white frame?
Then I did finish the BOAF Valentine Holiday into a hanging pinkeep. It's quite small since it's done over one on 28 ct fabric. I think I did replace most threads in this designs so it would show up better on the fabric.

Here's where I'm at with the Loose Feather Wednesday SAL with Ranae. It's lucky that it's stitching up quick since I haven't stitched on it to much lately. But I'm trying to keep up with it.

This is Rites of Spring, also a Loose Feather that I'm stitching with Suzanne. I would have gotten further ahead if I would have gotten this counting thing down. That circle was a real pain and I had to frog I don't know how many times. I rather not recall actually, some things are better suppressed.

In January I finished this little ornament and I have tried to get a good picture of it since. The darn thing is cursed I tell you. I think I have a crisp picture and it's always blurry when I upload it. So this is how good it will get! It's from CCN and I think it was published in the 2007 ornament issue. Seriously, it doesn't really scream Christmas to me but I just love the colors, maybe I will just finish it for one of my girls and it can be out all year round.

Also, I couldn't resist sharing this picture. That is one relaxed kitty! She was just snoring away all afternoon (and believe me this one snores). So cute!
Things at home are starting to calm down a bit. It helps that I wrote my finals again this last week and don't have to stress about that and I can concentrate on the family. I'm off for almost 3 week so that is a blessing. Thank you for all your words of encouragement it means the world to me! And as always, thank you for visiting!

That is a cute pic of your snoring kitting. I mentally inserted the snoring! ;-)

Ranae said...

All your WIPs look wonderful. You have some great ones going! And love your pinkeep and your Truly Thine piece too.

Karen said...

Love your finish...I do like that fabric color! Like all of your BBD WIP too.

Best part...happy kitty!

Siobhan said...

Lovely stitchy pics!! The BBDs are wonderful, and of course BOAFs never disappoint. Love the pic of the kitty, too. My pup snores--sometimes loud enough that he wakes himself up. Last night he was snoring while DH was on the opposite couch, also snoring. I looked at DD & said, "Do you see what I have to put up with at night!?". LOL

Sally said...

Wow you have been busy! Love your BBD finish. I have that one in my stash and now I've seen yours I want to stitch it now!

Lovely WIPs too.

Wow you've gotten lots of fantastic projects done!

Jackie said...

I envy you your three weeks off! Enjoy it!

Beautiful stitching pics! I think you captured Peace very well.

My pup snores...drives me completely batty. It's bad enough that my husband does snores but does the dog have to as well?

Mylene said...

Valerie said...


Thank you for the lovely comment that you left on my blog. I am so glad that you found me...so that I could find you!

You have some beautiful finishes! I love the colors that you stitch with!

Kitty looks pretty comfortable too...mine snores as well and I agree that it is rather cute!

Again, thanks for stopping by and visiting and I look forward to keeping up with you!

Happy Stitching!

Kathy said...

You are one busy woman. Stitching, family and school. You do a wonderful job with all.

Your stitching looks awesome. Love the Truely Thine one especially. Looks great on that fabric.

Suzanne said...

Congratulations on the beautiful finishes! Great progress on your SAL. I hated the circles on Rites Of Spring as well. I have avoided it at all costs, but now I have had to stitch at least one side. I lost count at how many times I had to unpick my stitching.

Have you seen the new BBD releases at Nashville. Can't wait to get them.
