Two finishes fresh from the framer!

Hahaha, I like the tongue-twister title. Oops, I did it again! LOL!

Here are two of my recent finishes back from the framer's today:

My Brother

Lizzie Kate's Flip-Its

I am so excited to have them! I will give the "My Brother" picture to my brother (like that's news to anyone, LOL) for Christmas and the other is for me. :-)

Also, here's my clock that I stuffed with orts and other leftover stitchy things:

I showed my husband the clock and explained how I had saved thread orts, floss wrappers and tags, pieces of perforated paper, etc. to fill it with. He looked at it for a bit then turned to me and said, "'s filled with stitching trash." I tried not to laugh at his comment but couldn't help myself. ;-)
It's been a great day (for a Monday - LOL). Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far. Hopefully I'll be able to post a bookmark finish in a day or two. Stay away from me, you dreaded frog!

One man's trash is a creative woman's treasure. LOL at your DH!

I love the "brother" finish. I bought a small pillow with that saying for my DBro for Christmas one year. He got a big kick out of it.

Thanks, ladies! :-)

Hey there, Mistylynn! *waving* Another 123 member posted those clocks a while back. I was able to buy one on eBay before they were all gone and the seller couldn't find anymore in their warehouse. I have no idea where else to find them. Sorry! :(

Laughed at "Brother," admired Lizzy Kate, and thought your "Stitching Trash" clock was ingenious! Well done! Very creative!!

Irene said...

All 3 look great. I think I will always be on the lookout for those clocks ! Great idea.

LoriRay! this blog entry forced me to buy one of those clocks too! I don't have a stitching room yet, so I have no place to hang it. You enabler!

Lovely stitching, too.
