A few finishes

I did finish a few things in time for the state fair this year.  After almost 3 years I finished this fractal freebee.  While I love the way it came out, I will never do another one again.  All of those confetti stitches just drove me crazy.  This one took fourth place mainly because there is a stitch missing!
Next I have been doing the Lizzie Kate Stamps and I have finished January, March and April.  Not sure what happened to February.  I skipped it some how.  I plan on starting it as my next travel project. I could only enter one of them so I choose January.  It won second place!
I also entered two ornaments.  One is a Mill Hill stocking.  I have actually finished six of these and they will be gifts to my co-workers at Christmas.  I was really happy with the first place on this one.
The other ornament I entered was a ginger bread house made from perforated paper that was then cut out and folded to make a little ginger bread house.  There are three of these that I made for my DD for Christmas for three different years.
The last thing I entered was another Lizzie Kate design for Valentine's Day.
I haven't stitched as much recently as I would like. I have gone back to work full time as a Montessori teacher.  I love it but it totally wears me out! I have completed a bunch of other Christmas ornaments that as soon as I actually finish, finish them, I will post.


  1. Nice projects, Heidi. Congrats on the ribbons.

  2. Congrats on all your stitching ribbons, and on the new blog (I was never a Multiply fan, so it's nice to see you here!) Everything looks really great, and I take my hat off to you for finishing that fractal - I think I might have quit after about the first hour. LOL

  3. Beautiful work. Congratulations on all the ribbons!

  4. Congrats on your ribbons! Is the fractal the bookmark size? It's huge!
