~*Friday Finishes*~

Happy Friday Dear Friends! I hope the week has been wonderful for you. Are you ready for Christmas? We have our tree and decorations up, but there aren't any presents under the tree yet. If all goes well this weekend, there will be some before Monday comes. We have been enjoying the season though. Trinity has decided he is too big to sit on Santa's lap at the mall... but we did stop by there last weekend to see the miniature toy train display. While we were they, he did look over at the big guy & smile! :-)

Today was a work day, but I'm home for the evening & hope to craft. Before I do that... there are some awesome ~*Friday Finishes*~ to share with you...


From Dora... her finish of the freebie ~*Silent Holy Night*~...
Dora stitched a lovely Christmas pocket & filled it with dried items from her yard. Stunning!

She stitched on 32 count Belgian linen 1 over 2 using DMC threads 918,3011,3021.
The tassel is made using DMC 918. Two rusty jingle bells are attached at each corner.

Thank you, Dora, for stitching and sharing!


Murf stitched ~*My Favorite Kitten*~... (a pattern available for purchase from your LNS or from my Esty Shoppe)
Murf also stitched the cute critters that are displayed with her kitten. So sweet... all of them!

Thank you, Murf, for stitching and sharing!


Always remember... I do love to see & share finishes. I you have one (or more) to share, please drop me an email. You can email me from the link on the left sidebar.

Wishing you all a great weekend with many warm smiles...

  11. I just finished the freebie Holy Silent Night and will finish it like Dora's, except I used DMC 833 (gold) for the letters. I used some of the aida I have so I could save my linen for samplers. I used 18 count and stitched 3 threads over 2. Love this. Thank you so much.
