A couple of finishes and a BIG Happy Dance

In the last couple of weeks I've been able to finish a few things.  The first one is Christmas Garden by Blackbird Designs.  I thoroughly LOVED every stitch that went into this one and can hardly wait until I get it framed and it's hanging in my home.  (The second and third pictures are more realistic of the fabric color)

I also stitched up this LHN Nashville 2012 Exclusive design.  I'm sending this to be finished so when I get it back I will show you the "finished" product.

Lastly I finished September Wordplay.  These designs are so much fun with all the little details.

The cooler weather we have been having lately is just wonderful and it has certainly re-energized me.  I've made a couple of new starts and will show those to you next time.  I hope you are all finding time to stitch this Autumn.

Have a great week and as always thank you for visiting with me.  I truly appreciate all your comments.

OMGoodness, Brenda, your Christmas Garden is just LOVELY! I keep staring and staring at my pattern for it, but have yet to start it. You just might have enabled me. Beautiful! What a lovely addition to your holiday decorating. I think I might would be leaving this one up all year. :0) I'm happy dancing right along with you.

I just love your little Word Play! And your LHN Nashville finish is so pretty. I can't wait to see it when you get it back from the finisher (although you do LOVELY finishing work yourself, girlie!)

Have a great week!

Hugs,
Carolyn

Christmas Garden looks AMAZING!! It's so beautiful and seeing yours makes me want to get moving on my own. It's still patiently waiting for me in my craft room. Your other two finishes are wonderful too. I'm a big fan of the wordplay designs but I've yet to stitch one thanks to budget restraints.
