Second Quarter Finish Along: The Results

Back in early April I listed my top unfinished projects that I would like to finish this quarter.  The quarter did not go entirely as I expected, but there are still a few finishes to show you!  I'll skip those that I did not finish as I am sure they'll be added to the Q3 list that you will see shortly.  In the mean time, the happy finishes:

1. Rainbow Charm Swap

I cut and I cut and I cut until this


turned into this


I have yet to hear from someone wondering where their charms are, so I can only assume they have all arrived. Happy stitching, ladies!  It was so fun swapping with you!


This little quilt top


was finished off with concentric diamond quilting and a bright orange binding.



This poor hat had been missing it's little top for ages and ages


She was finally finished off on a bus to Dublin Airport.  Not glorious, but at least she's finished.  I was still wearing her in June, so she is a great addition to my wardrobe!



In possibly the most anti-climatic finish ever this 1/2 finished bag


became (possibly) my least favorite finish ever


Thankfully it has found a new home and will be arriving there shortly.  I won't spoil the surprise...you'll just see it pop up on a blog somewhere in the next few weeks.


Finally, this is one of my favorite finishes of the quarter.  A little cross stitch that went from this


to finished.  It now lives on my desk at work.  My office mates are asking for cross stitches of their own.  I will have to sort out little patterns that suit each of them individually.  That would be hilarious!



There we have it.  Five finishes out of the eight I listed as goals.  There are three quilts outstanding that I would like to finish next quarter, so it's time to get cracking.  Once again, Leanne, thank you for organizing.  I  enjoy this process through and through.  I'm so glad you're always there to give us a nudge.

Such lovely finishes and so many too. I was looking at my charm pack last night and thinking about ideas. I love the little cross stitch. You could print the patterns out and sell them you know.

Brilliant finishes. love the quilt especially.

Archie the wonder dog said...

Are you sure the charm swap only counts as one finish? Not one finish for each charm pack assembled and posted?! Think you missed a trick there ;o)

Marla said...

Love the cross-stitch. I'm working on a little mitosis cross-stitch of my own. I study a drug that acts during DNA replication :)
