A messy mess

on my desk ... and of course
NOT ENOUGH FLOSS

Finishing:
-Pumpkin Keeper (drawn thread freebie) I'm thinking pincushion & fob. Maybe try some cording for the fob with left-over floss. Not sure about pincushion decorations ... either cording or tassels. It is so pretty, I don't want to spoil the design
-Bent Creek The Black Cat -- into a small pillow -- maybe try to add some orange beads around the edge &/or tassels in black with orange beads (undecided) AND OUT OF BLACK FLOSS. Not enough orange either (sigh)
- Two Pinkeeps Goode Huswife) made a lot of color changes to this charming design -- ran short on linen. The pinkeep looks kinda big - but I wanted to add tassels. The smaller one with the inventory will become a needlebook if I can figure out how to do it with such small edges!!! May have to buttonhole around.

Only thing open today is Wal-Mart & they don't have all the floss colors.

Try nun stitch. Really like those two very colourful pieces. They're happy. Maria. S.

That's really all adorable, Lelia.

Sounds like you are headed in the right direction with all of your finishing!

They look great Lee! And I agree with Maria about the nun stitch. Isn't it just the way that you run out of the floss that you need and don't realise until you're ready to need it? LOL

Nice small finishes! You'll have to post another pic when you get them all made up. :)

Wow - you do seem to be on a finishing frenzy!

Any progress on Game Board yesterday? I must admit that I wasn't in the mood - there's always next week, right?

I love your color changes!

What fun, bright designs, Lee! Lots of finishing going on - great! :D

I vote for neither cording nor tassels for the Pumpkin Keeper pincushion. The design is so delicate around the pumpkin that I agree that you don't want to overshadow it at all. Everything else is going to be equally lovely!
