Its Almost Over Summer That Is

Hello to all my wonderful friends here in Blog-land, I hope this post finds you all well and stitching away.
I have been busy doing all kinds of things, yesterday Julie my sister in law came over I feel bad we did not do much beading but did finish a beautiful leather bracelet she made she use a peyote stitch with the beads and added it and other items to add elegance.

I have done some finishing and want to get through all my stitched designs and make them into something, so I will be busy doing that along with stitching and beading, I am going to be doing some stain glass but that will be left for fall due to I need to not think about being outdoors and if its cold its a good time to do the glass.

Her is one finish: I love this little girl, this is a Tralala Collection Priv'ee design, I finally framed her, I do change out my hanging pictures for the seasons.

I had to get a ornament done before Septenber, I am so far behind this year with my ornament stitching.
I am so sorry I do not remember the designer, I stitched this so long ago and the pattern is gone.
This is a Scattered Seed Sampler The Gatekeeper Pinkeep, Tammy Black has a series each year and ships out kits four times a year, I did this last year and finally finished it into a Pin Keep.
I used crushed walnut shell's which gives it a little weight.
 This is a small design I did in the Blackbird Designs Retreat put on by Stitchville USA Spring Fling, Deb at Stitchville does a fabulous job of getting wonderful designers here every year, next year Jeannette Douglas  will be back yahoo.
Its a little hard to see but these two hardly ever come close to each other, I think they secretly like each other.
Krissy is not supposed to be on this chair but I could not resist taking a photo, see the look of guilt on her face.
Time to get ready for my eye appointment and take Krissy to the vet to get her nails clipped, she needs to be put under because she hates it so much, poor girl.
Happy stitching to you all please drop over to you have to see the cute Snowman Stocking she is doing.

Lovely stitching! I really like the pinkeep with the crow and keys

Congrats on all of the great finishes Catherine. Love your furbabies.


Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Love the Tralala Christmas Mouse and the Santa too. I think I recognise him from an issue of JCS.
The pink keep is lovely, it would make a good key ring too.
How exciting to meet Jeanette Douglas too.

Vickie said...

Oh such sweet finishes Catherine. Krissy does look guilty there. She must really put up a stink for her nail trim!! I hope she is fine now. :)

RJ said...

Great finishes Catherine. I love the little Santa and have seen it before but don't remember who does it. Love all the choices you made and I particularly love the bird pin, so sweet. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

Your finishes are beautiful.

Wow, great finishes, Catherine! I love them all. I must have the vet do my Molly's nails too. She just gets so freaked out I worry I will get bitten!

Marilyn said...

Cute finishes.
That pic of the furbabies is so cute.
I hope Krissy made it through her nail clipping ok.

Great stitching on everything. I just love the mouse, she is a real cutie!

Poor Krissy, I hope she did well at the vet.

I just love all your finishes! You are a busy girl!!
I think that sweet Santa is a Prairie Schooler. I'm not sure which one, but it looks like PS.
The pets are so sweet!

Preeti said...

Lovely finishes !! :) I always think of finishing atleast one piece each month but the finishing happens when it has to.

Brigitte said...

Oh my, such a lot of lovely stitching and finishing. Like Frances I think the little Santa is by Prairie Schooler.
Good luck with all your finishing plans.

You've done such a fine finishing job, Catherine! I have a big pile of things to finish, but never take time to do it, lol! One of these days!
