Couple of finishes to post...

I finally added the charms to Lizzie Kate 2002 FlipIts. Here is finished project:


This was a round robin project from 2007/2008. I stitched the final 2 squares (April and May) this past Christmas. I attached all of the charms this past week.

I also finished Blackbird Designs Petites Lettres Rouges this past Thursday.


I really enjoyed stitching this one and it worked up quickly. I dropped both of these off for framing this past Thursday.

No stitching this weekend. I did start Little House Needleworks "Schoolgirl Lessons" this past Thursday night. Nicole sent this to me in February, goodies in my Ho Ho Ho Oranament Exchange package. I started it at a Tune Swinger's Orchestra dance this past Thursday night (I'm a member). I'm more of a helper. Basically, I run the sound board during the dances and I help out percussion in the Latin songs, playing either Maracas or Claves. And will sub for the piano player in rehearsals when needed. Since I'm only playing during the Latin songs, I'm sitting at the sound equipment and have plenty of time to kill, so I took stitching with me. The light isn't great, but I can see enough to stitch (carefully). No stitching Friday night, I worked late and ended up vegging in front of the TV for a bit while getting laundry done, then went to bed. Saturday, I helped out at my LNS (Lazy Daizy) till noon (Sarah was having a sidewalk sale), then had 2 concerts. First concert was the Raleigh Concert Band at 2pm. I'm in the percussion section and have been playing with the band since 1999. Second concert was the Blue Notes Dixieland Jazz Band, playing a wedding rehearsal party (an outdoor pig picking). I'm the banjo player and one of the singers. Yesterday was way too busy. Today is a little more relaxing. I will be going out a little later for a bit. Hopefully later this evening, I'll be home and can put my feet up and stitch.

I hope everyone has had a great weekend. Hugs and Happy Stitching.

I love your finishes - the L*K is fun to see all stitched together (I have seen "snipits" every month on different blogs...but not all together). And your completed BBD is wonderful! Busy weekend...enjoy today & I hope you get some stitching in.
