A really quick finish!

Saw this freebie posted at one of the Facebook cross stitch group yesterday and thought to stitched it up with one of the DMC varigated reds...stitched it quite quickly. Can't decide how to finish it off last night so i waited till this afternoon, still i wasn't happy with how it turned out. Oh well, just need to keep trying... This one was stitched up last year and finally finished it off into a flatfold...Again, it is a freebie and i don't know who was the designer. Years ago, after stitching up a design i noted it all in a booklet but lately just don't bother it anymore. After a grey and stormy week, the sun shows up finally this morning. Glad a friend called up to go out for a walk, she've like it nearby my place along the dyke but it was quite windy so we opted out to the forest instead. Was always lovely to walk out there and so engrossed with chatting that we were lost a couple of times, even her dog had lost sight of us so we've been yelling at somepoint. Luckily, it isn't a big forest. Tried this mini apple tarts last sunday morning and quite delicious. Took some to work for during coffee break but i think these are goods for as desserts as well, with cream or ice cream. Hope everyone's having a good week.

Your red and white ornaments are so pretty, Mylene... I like stitching with one color as the ornaments come together so quickly! Love the look of those little apple tarts, too!

Both of the stitched pieces are very pretty. I like how you made the one stand up.

Beautiful finishes and stitching.
The tarts look delish.

I always wonder how other stitchers manage to keep notebooks and lists of all the designs they stitch, if I took the time to do that I couldn't spend as much time actually stitching. Love your two finishes, and the walk through the forest looks chilly but nice to be outdoors.

Beautiful new finish. Great flatfold, I have the lovely one you made me on show every Christmastime, it's out this year already. X

Red and white ornaments look always great, and so do yours. Very beautiful stitching and finishing.
Great apple tarts. A good idea to make these small ones instead of one big apple tart. I have to think of that when I make apple cake the next time.
