And lo and behold, we have some stitching content today...and will wonders never cease, they are actual Finishes! I better come clean because if you look closely enough, there's a little "09" in the corners. That doesn't seem so bad, except that they were stitched in JANUARY of '09, like, 23 months ago. Pitiful. But part of the reason they sat in the drawer so long is that I didn't leave quite enough fabric border around (you can tell in the pic here.) And I've been in a quandry ever since about the best way to finish~finish them.
I've been wanting to copy Lynn B's felt ornament finish for a long time, and it turned out to be a perfect solution to my 'not-enough-border' problem :) The kiddos' 2009 ornaments are finally hanging on our 2010 tree.

Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods and for your sweet comments. I'll be back soon to show you some really lovely birthday gifts I've received and to show you more finishes (of the knitty kind.) Have a Happy Holiday Weekend!
