How to finish?


These are pictures of all the finishes I have stored away in a box (mostly Shepherd's Bush), waiting for me to work out how to complete them. They could be framed, hung on a wire hanger, made into a fob, an ornament, or perhaps a dozen more ways could be thought of. With my time limited by working full time I just try to stick to stitching up the pieces first and then store them while I work out what to do with them at a later time. I'm getting plenty of ideas looking at other people's blogs, which is terrific, but really haven't had the confidence or the time to be creative with them. One day they'll be put to life where I can enjoy looking at them everyday.

I just found your blog from Melissa's blog, what a beautiful place you have here! You've really been busy stitching all these lovely designs, the photos are so pretty as you have them all in one pile :)

Your cats are beautiful too, I enjoy seeing kitty photos :) Have a happy Sunday!

Looks like my tub! One day I'll do something with all of mine too! :) My problem is I'd rather stitch than do any finishing!!

I wish I could have so many finished pices like you have in the box!!
That would be so fun to just look at them!

Dear Jane,

As I've written in my blog, you are my nomination for Stash Queen! I laughed when I saw this post because of the wealth of riches you've created! W.o.W! And someone said you worked full-time! Now, I work f/t too so I definitely can't use that excuse anymore!

I look forward to your finishes. Whatever they will be, I'm sure they will be wonderful!

Looks like we share the same kind of treasure chest ! My finished stitcheries are stored flat in large portfolios. One day, who knows... Like you, I see wonderful finishes on blogs, but hardly find the energy/spirit to emulate them.
