Finishing Spree: Update #7~Made it to the bottom of the basket!

Ten days and 19 finishes later... I'm done! Whew! Here are my last few finishes.

This is a small part of Antique Bee Sampler by Elizabeth's Designs. I went a little crazy with the embellishing on this one, but it was fun.

This little sheep is a freebie from Just Cross Stitch, available here.

Another freebie, available here.

And yet another old freebie, which I don't think is available anymore.

And that's it! From this...

...to this!

Thank you to all who have left such kind comments and followed me through my finishing spree! I hope you've enjoyed it and perhaps picked up an idea or two. Finishing is fun and it doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. But I don't recommend leaving your finishing to pile up for a few years!

And now for the framing...

...but first, a break!

Thanks, y'all! Happy Stitching & Finishing!


  1. A gorgeous set of finishes! Love how you do cool shapes and use all those pretty trims.

  2. Oh wow. My favorite is Honey Bee. Yep. Love it!!!

  3. Way to go on reaching the bottom of your basket! Since you have emptied yours, should I send you mine? I really like your Honeybee finish in this batch. Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Congratulations! They are all so beautiful. Thanks for sharing ideas of how to finish smalls. I never stitch small things because I have no clue how to finish the. I always go for larger ones to be framed.

  5. Thank you very much for taking the time to post and explain how you finish (and for answering my silly question on your last post). As the owner of a large bag of unfinished finishes, and not much confidence, I've really been inspired and have bookmarked your posts for future reference.
    Your finishes look awesome displayed together!

    1. Justine, practice on an old piece or stitch up a few quick freebies and practice on those to build your confidence. Once you actually start working on it, I bet you'll get the hang of it quickly.

  6. So many lovelies!! My to-be-finished basket is actually a box...with a lid....with things in it that have been waiting years (a few of them are probably at least 10 years old by now!)for some attention. Every so often I get inspired, but with a Small Person in the house, finishing gets neglected quite often. :/ Thanks for all the inspiration!

  7. Congrats on finishing them all!! You have inspired me to finish off a few I've kept ignoring despite them all crying louder & louder for attention. I think I will definitely try the twisted ribbon trim, it's so simple but looks so effective :)

  8. Congratulations on the finishing. They are all beautiful.

  9. WOW! They are all gorgeous! My favorite is Honey Bee! LOVE, love, love the embellishing on it!
