Young lady, don't you ever let me hear you say you're not good at finishing!!! They are SO well done, perfect corners, evenly filled and the stocking is superb! Lots of work, and all recipients of your generosity appreciate it very much.

Shirlee! When you said that you weren't any good at finishing...
I thought you weren't any good at finishing!
Your stitching is perfect and the finishes are inspired!
You're a wonderful talent, and a lovely lady, to boot!

TheCrankyCrow said...

TRES GORGEOUS!!! I love each and every one - but several a wee bit better than the others. ;o)))) You, my friend, are AMAZING!! And let me never ever hear you whine again about being finishing-challenged. I have a notion of sending YOU my things to finish. (But, then, I'd have to have something to send, huh???) Truly beautiful gifts of your hand and heart....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Such beautiful pattern and lovely finishes. I especially love your Mary Garry's December stitching. I've been trying to find the pattern but sadly can't find it. Might you know where one can find this pattern?
