But who cares about all that, when I have TWO finishes to show you? First up - BBD's Rose Garden. I really thought this would be pincushion sized, until I actually started stitching it. All alone, it was kind of an awkward size. Too big to be a pincushion, too small to be a pillow. So it needed a bit of help. Luckily, I'm addicted to quilt fabric, also. This checked fabric was in my stash, probably for another project, but who knows what that could have been.

I used to belong to our local garden club and occasionally they'd have a jewelry fundraiser. The club members would clean out their jewelry boxes and hold a little flea market. I found this pin and loved it. It looks perfect on my grey blazer. But until it's blazer wearing weather, it can rest on my pillow.
And here is finish #2 - La D Da's Tis the Gift. I absolutely adored stitching this.
