Finishing Success!

I have two finish finishes I can share with you today! The first is Bent Creek's Snappy Sampler which has been in my Fuppie Box for several years.
I found this frame at Michael's and had a feeling it would be perfect! I really love how it turned out!

The next finish is another piece that has been languishing in my Fuppie Box for-evah! I don't even remember the who, what, or where for this one, but I thiiiinnnnk it may have been in a cross stitch magazine. I'd always thought I'd make it into a bellpull but lacking any hardware I decided I'd use it for a big fat pillow. An entire bag of poly-fill later and voila!
Not great but not too bad either. I think it will look cute on our bed and you know I love paisley!

I have one other finish started but halfway through it I discovered I didn't have a clue what I was doing and need to consult the experts before I proceed. I am making a trip to Ye Olde Big Box Craft Store today for some supplies and if I have time this afternoon I will finish it up.

That being said, I better get a move on. I'm meeting Phil for lunch at Wendy's because all the commercials for their Crispy Dill Chicken Sandwich have worked as intended and I can't rest until I've tried one. You'd think I would have learned my lesson after last month's ghost pepper fries incident but this is me we're talking about!

Toodle-loo!!

What lovely finishes you created! I really like the frame you used for the Bent Creek piece. Is that a ribbon hanger?
