Finishing Blues

I've got a couple things on the table
for finishing. I think finishing is my least
favourite thing to do! And, I wait until
the very last minute.

The project on the left is
"A Sampler Pinkeep"
I finished one side & decided to back with fabric
and finish. Maybe I'll get the other side
stitched some day!

The project on the right is a
Lizzie Kate for punchneedle from
Halloween Hang-Ups 2

I'm looking forward to getting out my punchneedle
and making the other two ornaments -- the cat & the pumpkin.

Those are great finishes. I am slow at finishing my stitching. I have a tote full that either needs framing or made into something.

You'll get there - Great start :)

Your pieces look great and I so hear you on the finishing. I know that if I could get everything lined up and the time, I'd be okay, but I procrastinate like crazy!!

Well then you'll completely understand why the prize you won still hasn't been delivered. Maybe there should be a day dedicated to finishing. A sort of just pull-up-your-socks-and-do-it kind of day. Love the punchneedle.

I'm the same way I hate finishing but after I do it I like how it turns out almost all the time

I get so nervous when I finish something even though they usually turn out fine. The more you do, the easier it gets...

Both of your pieces are very nice :)

Brigitte said...

Great finishes!

I'm right with you about the finishing! You do such a lovely job with it though, I would never have guessed you didn't enjoy it!

Mmm, I hear you on the finishing. I just feel so ho hum about getting all the supplies out and starting the finishing. Once i have started I am fine, it's the strating that's the problem.
