UFO's do get finished!!

Hey there!! I guess all this forced disability time off is good for something! I finished up two (yes, two!) UFO's this week! They are both from my 2011 Challenge list.

The first finish for this week is Dutch Treat Designs "Harvest Grapes" Tabletopper. I am gifting this to my sister-in-law, as she saw it finished, and mentioned that she really liked it.

My second finish is Blackbird Designs "Blessings be Thine". This had a date on the chart of 2005, and that is probably when I started it, but, with the help of some friends, we decided it should have 2011 as the date, as that is when I finished it! I really like how this turned out.

And, since I have now finished three of my 2011 Challenge projects, I pulled out another UFO to add to the list. It is Blackbird Designs "Sweetheart Sampler". A little late for Valentine's Day this year, but, I can think of it as early for next year.

And for your viewing pleasure... some St. Patrick's themed pictures:

And, our ever present Turkey has been celebrating the holiday early it seems.... I don't see any green beer, but, that doesn't mean he hasn't been into some...

Happy stitching -- Spring should arrive eventually!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

congrats on the finishes!!! The TT is fantastic + love the BBD project. The Valentine or Sweetheart Sampler looks like a fun stitch. Your challenge list is getting shorter.
Cannot get over this weather, stay warm : )

BEAUTIFUL finishes, Myrna! You are on a roll, girl! I have Blessings be Thine in my to start basket. After seeing yours, I may have to move it closer to the top. It's just beautiful. And I bet your SIL will be thrilled to death to receive the gorgeous tabletopper. :)
