Friday Finishes!


This week I finally finished my Christmas painting, a free design found at Artist's Club. They offer downloadable patterns and lots of free ones. Of course I couldn't follow the directions for shading and changed up the colors a bit, so not perfect, but a fun piece.


I also made a pillow from Kathy Schmitz's, One Stitch Club. I was hoping for a holiday design, but this one is still beautiful and will make a nice gift. I added some lavender, with the stuffing.


I also made pillows out of the stitcheries I made last year and a few new snowflake pillows, all filled with a mix of stuffing and balsam. I got 3 bags of balsam, so I will be making a lot of smaller pillows with fun prints. I liked the red snowflakes, perfect to add the snowflake buttons to. The Annie and snowman are free patterns from Free Christmas Coloring pages.


 We still have color on some trees, but a lot of trees are dropping their leaves. Bean is quite  happy with the mess, his favorite activity in the fall. Have a wonderful weekend!

Nice pieces you've done. You must have all your Christmas gifts to friends all done. Thanks for the link, I went to check and see if any could be adapted as hooked pieces.

Wow, you have really made some great finishes! Someone will certainly love those little pillows. I have one small one stuffed with lavender that stays by my pillow when I sleep ... and helps me relax so I can get there.

Since I am not a painter, I couldn't have done Santa even half as good as you. I like the rope holder for the piece.
