Some 'finishing' finishes

I got my sewing machine out some days ago to complete some stitching as ornaments. Two of them I can't show yet as they are part of Christmas/Winter exchanges. I will show them when they have been received and opened by their recipients. In the meantime ...

I have finished the stitching I received from Joyce in the Friendly Stitcher's Unfinished exchange. I am pleased with this finish. Thank you once again Joyce for such a pretty design.

Autumn design - Unfinished exchange from Joyce now finished

For my youngest niece I decided to finish this design as a hanging ornament so that she has something soft to hold/squeeze (she likes her soft toys). I had thought to put cording around the edge but decided against it as she still likes to pull things apart. No point in putting temptation in her way.

Fabric: 32ct Belfast Flax linen
Threads: Suggested DMC and DMC alternatives

Until next time, enjoy your stitching or whichever crafts have you engrossed at the moment.


  1. Very nice finishing on Joyce's gift. What a sweet gift for your niece.

  2. They both look so cute, Mary! Wise decision about the cording for your niece, too :)

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. How beautiful how you finished the ornament Joyce stitched for you in that exchange. On her blog I have also seen what you stitched for her. Very lovely.
    That little Gingerbread Boy for your little niece is such a cutie.

  4. Joyce's gift is lovely, turned out beautiful in your finish.
    Cute ornament for your niece.
