Multiply's been a bad boy but I'm trying to update my Finishes!!

I've have trouble uploading, missing photos and the lot....just like everyone else. I've seen some slight improvements but still everything isn't working properly. I am taking a chance and trying to post an update. I've been on a finishing spree lately. First off my Fruit and Cheese is framed! That was done by my LNS, no mat because where I am going to hang it isn't a large enough space.All my photos are in my 2009 Finishes album if you would rather leave any comments there. And there are photos of the backs of the ornaments too, in case you're curious.

Then I framed my Christmas Fairy, just had the mat cut and I used a frame I had here at home.

Since my son bought a house, I thought I should make an ornament in that honor. Found this one in the JCS 07 edition. Stitched and finished it all in one day so I could take it to his house the next day!!!

Then I had to do one for my Granddaughter's first Christmas, so I found this one in the Gift of Stitching Dec 07 issue.

Then I had finished the Dimension house awhile back, but had not *finished* it. So I did that tonight too! I have also been plugging away on Chatelaine Fairy Garden, I have gotten farther than this, but just haven't taken a recent photo. I've finished the whole dragonfly that you just see part of in this photo.

I've been busy putting decorations up and finishing my shopping, just like everyone else. I think I have got things under control and can relax the next few weeks and enjoy the holidays. Can't see me having lots more stitching updates before the end of the year, so I hope that everyone has a great holiday and enjoys every minute! And Multiply still isn't playing nice, so I can't upload the most recent photo of Amberlyn!


  1. Congratulations on getting fruit and cheese framed. All the finishes are looking good. I like the christmas fairy and house and your grandaughters cute ornament.

  2. WOW Nancy.... Congratulations on the finishing.
    Your framed pieces look great.
    You always do a wonderful job stitching....
    I am in awe of some of your pieces.

    Congratulations to your son on his first home.

  3. These are all wonderful! Fruit and cheese looks just superb. The ornaments are both great. I should do something like the house for our son; even though he bought his house 2 years ago.

  7. Fruit and cheese looks amazing in its frame. Looks like you can reach in and touch everything. All your ornies are fantastic. Love the fairy. Merry Christmas!

  8. OH my gosh! I didn't even realize that the Fruit and Cheese was stitched until you said that you had it framed, it looked like tiling. That's amazing...and ornaments...well they are precious. I am a big fan of X-stitched ornaments.

  9. Thanks for checking out my site. I don't know where to start for sure,I really enjoyed the experience.
