Ahh, summer has arrived in my house!



So it's funny that one of my finishes are a Christmas ornament from Earth Threads, I think it's called Jeffrey's ornament and it came as a kit with the tuck pillow. Easy finish and it was fun to stitch.



I also finished up this kit from Lanarte, a Marjolein Bastin one. A girlfriend in Germany sent it to me about 10 years ago. I worked on it as my car project this winter and just now got around to finish it. There wasn't enough threads so I had to just put the finishing touches on it, just took me an hour or 2.

It feels like this was our first normal day off. After I wrote my finals I had to get the house in order finish everything up for summer regarding camps and such. My kids graduated 5th and 8th grade so we had a little party for them each.

But today I just had to do my everyday stuff and no classes during the summer. I even pulled out my finishing supplies and will try my hand on some finishing. It has been really hard to find a round frame for my dragonfly but they had mirrors on sale at Hobby Lobby this week so I found a round mirror there that might work. Keep your fingers crossed that it will!!

Thank you for visiting and for all your sweet comments!

Nice finishes! I love Marjolein Bastein. My son's school doesn't end till the end of June but my daughter is home for the summer. So we're half summer and half not. lol!

That tuck ornament is so cute!
I love the Lanarte piece too. Pretty colours.
I always loved it when my boys were done school and we could relax more in the evenings. No more homework, yeah!

I just discovered your blog - thanks to Terri!

What lovely stitching - I always have a small 'car' project that I keep close at hand to work on during traffic, stop lights, etc.

Summer is definitely here for us - love it.


Enjoy your week.

Beautiful finishes! I love Marjolein Bastin. I have a picture of her's that I got YEARS ago hanging in my bedroom. Some day I'll get around to stitching some bird patterns and hanging them around her print.
Enjoy your summer break.
