A couple of finishes

I had a pretty quiet week around here and the end result was a couple more finishes. Here's what I've been up to!

I finished up a lovely Valentine design by Nan from Threadwork Primitives. This one is called Endless Hearts and it's a beauty!



A pin pillow finish is destined for this one.

And.... my Maple Leaf is finished!! The beads arrived this week and I stitched them on just as soon as I got the package opened. Originally I'd picked just one shade of red beads for this but I thought better of it and ordered two different shades. Am I ever glad I did. The second shade was the better of the two. It's so hard to tell from a picture online!



I haven't decided yet just how I'll finish this one. I'm thinking perhaps a flat fold or a large pillow. Then again, it could end up being framed. Who knows!

I spent some time on BBD Awake The Dawning Day and here's my progress.



I'm sure this one will all come together when it's finished but right now I'm not liking the birds all that much. We'll see, maybe it will grow on me.

Beside the above,  I finished up my February ornament for my Ornament SAL but that pic will have to wait until the SAL monthly posting. 

I'm itching to get started at some new projects but first I'm going to work on the final finishing of some of my newly stitched projects. Hope your weekend is a good one!

Very pretty finishes! I love the valentine design and your Maple Leaf turned out beautiful. Startitis must be in the air. I've been forcing myself not to start anything more until I get something finished.

Congratulayions of two gorgeous finishes. So pleased that the beads worked out for you, it is so hard geting just the right colour when ordering on line.

I had admired that Valentine's chart, Lynn, and believe yours is the first I've seen it finished up--really pretty! And your leaf is gorgeous--I'm sure however you end up finishing it it will be perfect :)

Enjoy your week!

Very pretty stitching, particularly the Acorn Leaf which looks absolutely gorgeous!
