Some finished finishes

I went to my not so LNS today after work. It was a quick visit just to pick up some things the finisher dropped off. I had 15 individual pictures to share but didn't feel like uploading them so I made a photo collage of the finishes to share with you :)
Aren't they great?? Isabel turned 1 this Monday and her party is on Saturday so I'm so happy to have this in time for her birthday! I'm pretty sure the picture is clickable. I love the silk lining, the top part, and the back is backed with velvet. The small star and heart you see hanging from it can be written on with a marker. I LOVE IT! I want to stitch one for myself now LOL. My pillows are nice too. The January one has snowflakes hanging off from it, hearts for the February one, and I took a close up pick of the pot of gold and leprechaun of the March one. Kelly noticed it first and kept saying the entire time in his best Irish accent (which sounded more West Indian LOL) "It's a wee leprechaun and his pot o' gold." He's so silly! I can't wait to get the rest of my finishing back. I also had framing there waiting for me...I love how this came out! I'll try and edit this with a better picture later on but for now this will do. I swear the green frame makes the lighter colors pop out more. This is such a great piece! I have more framing I'm waiting on...I forgot to ask about it but hopefully it won't be too long before I get it back. The visit there was really short (less than an hour) but I did manage to get some stash. The one thing I wanted she didn't have so I have to order online but I did get this I got the JBW's because Tuesday in the mail I received a fabulous Fair and Square Exchange package from Shelly that included the most scrumptious looking silk floss! Here's what she sent...I feel so spoiled!!! Here's a close up of her beautiful square Well friends, thanks so much for reading this far! I'm off for a week from work *woooohoooo* and my only plan is to stitch and maybe do some finishing :-) TTFN!

Wow! All your finishes look great! I especially love how the stocking was "finished" The top trim and lining were lovely. I also love the charms you have on the Shepherd's staff. All of it is wonderful!
