Saturday was finishing day — these are the pieces that are finally finished.

I designed these and stitched them over the weekend. You can’t see “love” or “joy” because they are caught in the q-snaps. I am not sure how I will finish them. I had been thinking little pin pillows as gifts for my ever-changing weekly prayer partner at our ladies’ Bible study, but then I started to second-guess myself. What if she doesn’t sew? Now I don’t know…
After much time spent ripping out the right side, I finally finished this one! The *local* beeswax made a huge difference. The other beeswax was drier — this one was soft and not leaving chunks on the floss, and it made the Valdani thread stop shredding.
I also had a start but no photo yet. It is the Mary Burgess Sampler from the Essamplaire, which you can see here.
I have been working a little on Samplers from the Scarlett House. My “goal” would be to finish 2 UFOs before starting another project. I have 11 to choose from, which is so embarrassing. I’d really like to get the number DOWN — to 5 or less. I would feel better. Wish me luck!
Happy stitching everyone!
