First Finish For 2009

Tsk, tsk, tsk! I'm so disappointed in you girls. When I posted my stitching goals back on January 19, no one mentioned the ornament sized finish that was already accounted for. You guys are losing your touch ;o)

This little fellow was completed earlier this month. This is Chill Out by Heart In Hand -

I was looking to get my stitching mojo back and I thought a small finish might be the thing that would help. I was right :o) Plus it was quite appropriate for the FREEZING temperatures that we have been having here!

Since this was a complete kit, I used the fabric that was included and all fibers. The only thing I did not use was the piece of green felt that was supposed to go under the buttons. To be honest, it made no sense to me and I didn't like it. Now please note this is just 'my' opinion! :o)

I've got a doozy of a WIP to show you next so keep your eyes peeled!

I just finished blogging myself. I do love this Chill Out project. Maybe it should hang up above your father's desk. You did a good job on this piece and I agree with you about the felt under the buttons.
