I Did It!

I got all 7 grandchildren's ornaments finished ahead of my Thanksgiving goal. Now I will be able to give them to them Thanksgiving Day. These are the last two. Rudy looks a little lumpy at the bottom but he isn't really.

I decided I needed another little fall pillow for the bench in my hall and found this older Heart in Hand design in my stash. It stitched up quickly, and I think made a cute pillow.
I'm one that starts stitching series and then never manages to stitch the whole series. I'm bound and determined to finish the LHN Sampler series. I've completed Spring, Summer, and Autumn, and now I've started Winter. I think this one may be my favorite. This is my progress so far.
My youngest granddaughter, Greta, is a Halloween baby, so because Trick or Treat birthday sleepover  with friends interferes with birthday with family, we celebrated her birthday last weekend. I promised her I would post her picture here.
I'm looking forward to a stitchy weekend.
Happy Stitching,

Your ornaments and finishes are beautiful, but they pale in comparison to Greta. ;) She is such a cutie! I hope she had a great birthday.

I hear you on the series!! I write out lists and notes in notebooks and my iPhone apps about what I will do with all the series that I plan to stitch. Hang them on the wall, put them in a big basket in front of the fireplace, etc. IF I get one done, I'm lucky! Good luck on your finishing quest. You can do it!
