Completed Projects

It is the middle of the week and I have some finishes to share...

Up first, the butterflies for my niece...
All done!

I think it came out really cute...
(Pattern designed by Daily Cross Stitch)

I decided to go with variegated blue floss for the little flourishes around the butterflies.  I would have used metallic thread, but I just didn't want the headache of working with that type of thread.
(This little project actually ended up being a bit of a pain; I kept miscounting and having to pull out stitches and restart.  At least it turned out cute in the end!)

Then I turned my attention to framing a few more projects...
Hen and her chicks, framed in an oval hoop...

Momma and baby fox...

I love all the mommy and baby pieces, but I definitely think this one is my favorite.

Anna and Elsa, from Frozen...

Lastly, I started backing the projects I had framed on the 17th...
 Not exactly my original plan, but I think it will work out just fine.

So, that is what I have been up to...
...I've also been planning some new starts that I would like to make during the Olympic Stitching Challenge...
...just making sure I have all the supplies that I need.
Excited to see where the challenge takes me...

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great week, full of lots of stitching!


  1. You have been busy! The hoop frames are a great way of finishing a piece off.

  2. Congrats on the cute finish and wonderful framing job Carrie. Sure you don't want to frame mine. lol

      I will be happy to take a break from framing for a bit, once I send the package to my in-laws. ;)
