A Finish....And A Finish

It's rare for me to have two finishes in one week, but it indeed happened.  The first one is "Folk Eggs" by Prairie Schooler.  I actually got it done in time for (next) Easter!  I'd like to frame it in a whitewash painted frame.  What do you think?
The next one is a little different finish -- not of the cross stitch kind.  It's my London scrapbook.  I wanted to get it done before Matt came home for Christmas.  So I made my goal and am happy.  It contains such good memories of our trip of a lifetime.  Not fancy, nor is it particularly creative, but it's all there nice and neat.
These aren't the only pages.  I just photographed a sampling to give you an idea.  This scrapbook just makes me happy.  Thank you to the experienced scrapbookers who gave me advice and encouragement!

Our last Sisters In Stitches get together for 2012 happened last Saturday at Thea's house.  Once again, we were made to feel very comfortable and welcome as we stitched to our hearts' content.  Delicious soups were served by Thea and Laurie, and Marti brought a yummy coconut cake.  Our group is looking for a central location to have our stitch days, but it's been nice to visit each others' homes in the meantime.  We'll reconvene in January.  I'll make it a New Year's resolution to take pictures of our Stitch Days to share here.  I feel so lucky to have this group of friends.

I ran across the cutest Thanksgiving freebie generously provided by The Primitive Hare.  It's so adorable that I'm tempted to start it right away!  You can find it at The Primitive Hare's blog.  Have fun!

Having finished another stitching project, I thought it was time to start a new one.  Well, really two!  I'll post my progress with those next time. 

Welcome to my new followers!  And thank you, everyone, who took the time to make comments.  I enjoy each and every one!


  1. Your eggs are beautiful. I think you will pick the best way to finish them... Thanks for sharing the Freebie from primitive hare, I downloaded it right away.

  2. Your eggs are beautiful. I think a whitewashed frame would be perfect.

  3. I think a white frame would set the eggs off. Great scrapbook:)

  4. Those eggs are awesome!! I hope you can still see after stitching on the black, haha. :D

    Your scrapbook looks great, a perfect way to remember all the fun! :D

  5. The eggs are awesome, Cathy, and I think a white frame will really set the piece off beautifully :)
