Finishing festival

Instead of stitching ornies this weekend I finished like a fiend. And I have all sorts of holes in my finger to show how often I forgot I was using a sewing needle rather than an xs needle. Silly me!
I know this looks like a lot, but it's my standard format -- stitch all year then spend many late nights at the end finishing like a fool.

These are what got finished this weekend:
ornies finished Oct 27 and 28 2007

And over the last couple weeks I've gotten the stitching and/or finishing done on these:
pendibule 3
my first pendibule 10/3/2007
humbugs 10/11/2007
new ornies as of 10/8/07
I'm especially proud of the over-1 spool:

Your ornaments all look wonderful, but your spool is especially brilliant!

I'm afraid that I may not actually finish any of the ornaments I've stitched this year. The stitching is always fine, but that pesky finishing seems to elude me. I just can't find the time to do it.

I love how you've finished yours.

Thanks! Your kind comments are much appreciated.

Holley, I'm glad to know I'm not the only finishing-phobe out there. :)

Wow, all your ornies look so wonderful! I was wondering by chance if you know who the designer is for the snowman with the friends on it is? I love snowmen and fell in love with it.

Kris, thank you for your kind comments. :)

The snowman with "friends" is one of the Lizzie Kate ornament flip-it "blessing" cards from last year/possibly the year before. Remember when LK came out with a series of 12 or so blessings for Christmas -- Peace, Friends, , etc.

Oh thank you so much, I've already located it, and will be ordering it in the next couple of days.
