Some Smaller Finishes & Goals

Since coming home, an finishing up Celestial Dragon I have worked on a few smaller things.  I admit its been nice to work on some smaller, more manageable and quickly finished pieces!

First up I stitched my ornament from July which I never got to... Celestial Dragon just took too long!

Next I started this on Saturday and finished it just before bed last night.  Its my friend Beatrice's Mirabilia RR that she's sending out amongst her friends.

Lovely ornie Dani and that RR is just gorgeous!

Jo said...

I love that ornie - really pretty. Hmm, I have a similar motif on an Abbey Lane pattern... I can feel a plan coming on ;)

Love Beatrice's RR - especially the fun range of box shapes for everyone

Lovely ornament Dani, I really like the thread you chose!

Great color choice for the ornament -
I've stitched this one as well but I haven't posted it yet -

It seems to be pretty popular

Giovanna said...

Very pretty finishes - isn't it nice to make something small once in a while?

Lynn said...

It must feel good to finish some smalls after such a large project. I love the colour of floss on your ornament. Very pretty!
Beatrice's RR is stunning! I love your addition to it.

Very lovely finishes Dani !

The ornie looks great in that thread. Beautiful color.

And what an interesting piece for a round robin. Very clever idea that will make a stunning finish.

Alice said...

I love that ornament! It looks very Fleur de Lys which is apropos given your recent Quebec city trip. The colours are spectacular! Beatrice's RR is looking so nice too!

The ornament is lovely. And Beatrice's RR is very intriguing. I don't think I've ever seen one done like that.

Dani, Seeeing the ornament stitched by you makes me want to stitch it. It didn't stand out to me when I bought the jcs preview edition. I love Christmas Elegance. What a great choice for Beatrice's RR. i am sure she will love it.

Donna said...

Very pretty!

Angela P said...

Love your ornament finish, the color is lovely!

Christine said...

Great ornament Dani, and that RR is both unusual and spectacular. Are all the boxes random fragments from Mirabilia designs?

Sally said...

Your ornie is gorgeous Dani and the RR is beautiful.

Dee said...

I love the color of the ornament. So pretty! Congrats on the finishes.

Doris said...

goegeous stitching!

NEEDLEWINGS said...

These are beautiful! My one and only thing I ever cross stitched was a teddy bear on 22 count and several colors. It was beautiful but took me 2 1/2 weeks to finish and still a small piece at that! I guess I will stick to quilting and painting! lol But I admire anyone that does counted cross stitch!

Lucy said...

I love the Miriblia...never tried one though.

Beatrice said...

Oh Oh Oh my Mira...it's stunning thank you...I can't wait to see it in real life!!!!
Your ornie is sweet.!

Karin said...

Wow - Dani you have been busy! Everything is gorgeous!

Your July ornament is lovely Dani, pretty colour choice.
