Some finishes & Things

I have 2 more finishes for January. I did get my Sugarplum Tabletopper finished also but as i just discovered the backing has shrunk. I'm not impressed as i'd washed it before using. Now  i have to unpick it all & find different fabric for backing. Grrrr. I've even managed to get a RR from a few years back sewn together. Just deciding on what to do about borders & it will be quilted soon.

Not sure but i think this is Gail’s 2009 free stitchery.

2010(?) stitchery from Gail also.
I’d forgotten to show  you a picture of the cute little tape measure i’d bought the last time i was at Bargain Box.

Cute little cat. The tape gets pulled out via the ear.
I was doing a search on more books to read & must’ve had to many tabs open. Thought i’d found book 3 in a series ive been reading. I ordered the book before Christmas & when it finally arrived was a little puzzled as to why it didn’t follow on the first 2. Took a closer look of the cover & realised i’d ordered part 3 of a series i haven’t bought. :( Well had to order 1 & 2 then didn’t i. :)

I enjoyed all 3 novels by Amy Clipston.

This arrived in the mail the other day. A pattern i succumbed to buying in the New Year after saying “no more”. :) Guess i’d better go & unpick the tabletopper & cut borders for my RR.
Have a fabulous day.

Yes, the first stitchery is Gail Pan's 2009 freebie. I stitched it too! You can see mine here: http://flourishingpalms.blogspot.com/2009/12/friday-flaunt.html

It's always pleasant to work on stitcheries, isn't it?

Nice that you're continuing to enjoy your Amish stories, even if the latest are by accident!
