Round Robin Return / Friday Finishing Frenzy

My Round Robin has returned home.  It looks gorgeous and I want to thank Angela, Elisa, Lisa and Michelle SO very much for stitching on my robin and for letting me stitch on theirs.  I really enjoyed my first Round Robin.  Thank you girls for making it such an enjoyable round robin.  I still have to finish the last block and then will get it framed.

I have also had another finishing frenzy.  The first one is Little House Needleworks Cardinal Winter that I stitched earlier in the year.  I stitched it on 28ct mushroom evenweave using the recommended DMC threads except for 712 which I swapped for White.  It is badly finished as a flat hanging ornament.

I also finished Lizzie Kate's Snowman 10 again which I finished earlier in the year.  It is stitched on 14ct blue marble aida using the recommended DMC threads.  Again I finished this as a flat ornament and I think it looks great and turned out much better than Cardinal Winter.

I also finished another stitched piece but can't show that as it is a gift for someone who reads my blog.

I have been making good progress on my Heaven and Earth Design Mini Be Good but will show a picture of that next week as I am hoping to continue with it after writing my Christmas cards and wrapping some presents.  I have managed about six hundred stitches which doesn't seem a lot but I am pleased with it as the page is rather daunting as it contain a lot of confetti stitches.

Until next time, happy stitching

Love Lesleyanne

i think the LK ornament looks really pretty, like the tassle hanging from the bottom - LK snowmen are such cuties, i really need to stitch myself one for myself soon - hugs, Amanda

Love your round robin piece. I have always wanted to join one of those, but never have. Probably because the back of my stitching always looks so messy no matter what I do! lol

Your finishes look wonderful!! I just love them and it looks like you did a great job on both of them!
