Productive Day Off!

Hi Everyone,

My office was closed today in observance of President's Day so I figured I'd get some things accomplished since it was a "free day"... hopefully once I push up this blog post I won't let FaceBook "time suck" the rest of my afternoon!  Isn't it amazing how a person can intend on logging on for only a minute, but then an HOUR whizzes by!?!

I finished "A Little Love" earlier in the month and found the perfect frame I got with a coupon at Michael's.  The frame is 4x4 and it is now hanging where a "welcome snow" sign was hanging in my foyer.  The sign's not working for the snow here in Massachusetts so I figured it was time to change it out.

Yesterday I took a short break from model stitching and finished up the trio of Lizzie Kate's Flora McSample "Christmas 2011" ornaments.  The finishing worked up very quickly with some cardboard, glue, batting, felt and ribbon. 
These will get tucked away with the other ornaments awaiting craft fairs in the fall/winter.

I've also used this day to straighten out my stash and as soon as that's in a presentable enough state for me to show on here I'll take a photo.  Not yet --- the word chaotic comes to mind. :)

That's all for now, hope you all have a great day and just keep stitching!  ~Nicole

  7. What lovely finishes. And both the ornaments and A Little Love are on my to-do list, so now I'm really inspired to get my needle moving!
