First Finish of 2007


As I was beginning to become engrossed in watching "Band of Brothers" on the History Channel this afternoon, the urge to stitch something hit me. I've been cleaning out some of my piles this week and found various UFOs, but nothing really called out to me. I opened a box by my stitching chair upstairs and this sweet Cross-Eyed Cricket freebie kit jumped out and said, "Me, me!"

I saw this made up as a scissor fob at the Spokane shop and it seems perfect for that use. Perhaps I'll even get it made up after church tomorrow!

It's tiny, but it's a finish - yay!

Very sweet!!! Horray for first finishes! I finished one yesterday too, but since it is a gift for someone I am going to delay posting about it!!!

You have a finish already? Wow! I'm getting left behind and had better pull my socks up, (or 'get into my slippers' as the folk from Hamburg, Germany say!!!). There are only 51 weeks left in the year!!!LOL!

I love the CEC designs too and this is a sweet finish.
I just did an acorn as part of a design for a gift. I'm working on a snowlady for a birthday exchange and it's fun!
I sometimes look at my WIPs and UFOs and wonder when I will get them finished. It may take a while...

A finish is a finish, no matter how small. And this one makes up for its size by its cuteness. I love these acorns, and you did a wonderful job.

I've stitched this a couple times as a quick needlebook -- it is a perfect size for fob. Excellent choice : )
