CCN...snow Birds & a new start..

This piece was stitched just after i received the JCS mag last year but wasn't able to finish it off into an ornament till now. Love how it turn out though i am getting out of ideas how to finish off pieces these days. Seems like all into flat ornaments...

I was browsing through facebook this evening and saw Annie's recent finish, love it and since it's a freebie i went and printed off at once and went to find fabric and thread and as you can see started it right away... wonder how long it gets me to stitch the whole piece. Working lots these days due to Spring break and quite lovely weather so i only have a couple of days off each week lately. Hope to have enough energy after work to stitch coming days... Being busy at work we don't have much time for going out or socializing the last week. Only once last Saturday which i especially asked for an off day as it was at the mainland. Always fun to meet up with friends!! Happy week to all! Thanks a lot for stopping by and the kind comments!!

I like how you do your flat finishes. The little pins on the sides are just perfect!

Annie said...

Very pretty finishes. We've all been stitching so long, it's hard to come up with new finishing ideas sometimes. And you are so good at the flat ones!

Have fun with the flower sampler. It's a quick stitch and I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Sweet finish! I think flat ornament finishes are one of the best ways, I'd do them over and over and over. They just always look so clean and chic.

Keep up the good work :)
