Finishing Frenzy

While I was watching the Wimbledon finals yesterday I channeled my nerves into doing some finishing. First up I finished the Hillside Samplings Folk Art Hornbook

Then I moved onto one of the old Essie's Friends Personally Pink by Fouroaks Designs

Finally as Roger was putting us all through the mill before he managed five in a row, I moved onto pinkeeping some little seasonal houses by Whitley Julip Designs that I stitched back in 2004.

These took me through the Mixed Doubles finals as well, I was really thrilled that Jamie Murray won. The other thing I learned yesterday was that Bjorn Borg can still make me go weak at the knees LOL

Oh and I got a really hard time while I was taking the photo's today, apparently I should have been pointing at the cuteness that is Tansy!

The tennis was brilliant at the weekend. I had stop what I was doing and just watch the mixed doubles at the end as it was so good.

Superb finishes!

There's something about old Bjorn, isn't there? I blame our impressionable 70s childhoods!

Katrina said...

Great finishes! And what a sweet kittie :-).

Gorgeous finishing! I love the hornbook and the pinkeeps. Bjorn Borg has aged beautifully-I must agree.

Anita said...

Belinda said...

Wow! All of the finishes are quite lovely!

And so is the cuteness that is Tansy! *skritch*

You got an incredible amount of finishing done, they are all beautiful. I think my favorites were the little pinkeeps, the little houses in the different seasons were adorable.

Tansy is so pretty, and almost a double for my cat Bug. My other cats are all black, but Bug is a tuxedo cat like Tansy.
