Another finish spree!

Hi all

Well I had another finishing spree last weekend. Here's the pics of what I achieved, some of these have been waiting a while!! Please excuse the quality of the pics, it's been raining here all week. Rain is great but not so good for good pics!

Teresa Wentzler - Futurecast pin keep
Brittercup Bunny pin keep
Elizabeth's Design pumpkin pin keep
The Trilogy Garden Spots pin keep
Shepherds Bush ornaments
Dragon Dreams ornaments
Needleplay Needleworks & Ursula Michaels ornaments
Lizzie Kate Peace, Love & a Cure pillow
Bent Creek Dance of the Bumblebee pillow
Lizzie Kate Fun in the Sun pillow
Drawn Thread Welcome Spot Sampler pillow

As you can see I got quite a few pieces done, amazing what you can get done when it's raining and the kids are occupied! I was trying out a new to me way of doing the pillows using the folded corners, this method is not quite what I was aiming for but have an idea of what to try next time.

Will try and get some updated wip pics happening tomorrow as I have another long weekend, got to love school holidays, gives me the perfect excuse for days off work!

Thanks to all for taking the time out of your busy days to look at my blog.
