~*Friday Finishes*~

Hello Dear Friends! It is that time again... time for ~*Friday Finishes*~!

There is only one to share this week... but it is a beauty! This one comes from Karen... a ~*Simplify*~ Freebie finish...

Karen used floss colors to match some fabric she had... and it is a stunning finish! The way she sewed her pillow with the cross stitch on the top is brilliant! Beautiful job, Karen! Thank you for stitching and sharing!

It has been a 'week' for us here... more priming and remodel work has been done next door. I hope to pick up my paint tomorrow and start on the really fun part! The kiddo seems to have had lots more homework than normal this week. It seems he has been trying to hide it in the 'black hole' he calls a desk at school... so many long evenings have been spent trying to help him get caught up... and learn that it isn't a good thing to hide the work away. I've been stitching in the evenings too and have a few projects in the works. They can't be shared just yet though because they are for swap gifts... soon enough though I'll post them. The biggest thing this week was a huge scare... Wednesday we had our first round of snow and ice... which caused my hubster trouble ~ driving home from work on the turnpike. He hit a patch of black ice and busted up his truck pretty bad... thankfully though... thank you God... he was not harmed and no other vehicles were involved. Depending on the insurance, we will either be repairing his old truck... or shopping for something else. The thoughts of what could have happened are so frightening... and make us realize how special each moment is. Believe me, I didn't want to let go of him when he did get home~

Love those near and dear to you and cherish every moment.


Wishing you all warm smiles...



  1. Awesome finish Karen, I too love it that you added your xstitch to the top.
    Betty,,thank God your hubby is ok, I was in a serious accident 26 years ago, it is very scary, there are several hours of that evening that I have no memory of. I was left with some everlasting reminders...

    take care...
    Have a wonderful weekend..


  2. A wonderful finish by Karen.

    So glad Tony is ok Betty. The vehicle can always be replaced. I don't blame you for holding on tight when he got home. I would do the same.

  3. That pillow is simply Fabulous! It's always rewarding to use up fabric in old cupboards...yes?
    Also, I am very happy to hear that no one was hurt in the accident....definitely a "whew" moment there.
    Have a great day!

  4. Betty, so glad that your husband is ok.
    His guardian angel was definitely watching over him.

    Have a good weekend.
