Done and Done!

A record TWO finishes to share today! The first is the Lizzie Kate Snippet "Happy Hoppy Easter". I actually finished it Sunday but I've been a lazy blogger and haven't posted in FOREVER! This was stitched with trusty ole DMC on 25 count Lemonade Linen from R&R Reproductions. I loved, loved, loved stitching on this delicious shade of yellow!

My second finish is the Spring Zipper from Bent Creek. This has been in my UFO basket for ages!I started it during a very difficult time in my life and every time I picked it up to try to finish it I would get slammed with bad memories. Now that it's done, I'm not sure what I'll do with it! I still love the colors and the design, I just don't want a constant reminder of things I'd rather not think about! Anyone else ever have this issue? I am soooo looking forward to moving on to something else!

They are both LOVELY finishes!!
I do understand about the bad memories... perhaps you could make it into a gift for someone who you know will appreciate and enjoy your stitching, creating a few happy memories to go with it...

Both of them are great finishes. :) Congrats !

I am familiar with the "Bad memory syndrome" with certain pieces. I agree with the idea of finishing it and sending it on to someone else to enjoy. It is a great piece.

Both of your finishes are so sweet! I agree with the above advice, the zipper project would make a very nice gift.
