Finishes, finishes everywhere

Well...that's probably a slight exaggeration.  I do, however, have 2 finishes for the JCS SAL on facebook.

First up, is Lizzie Kate's Very Merry.  This can be described as personalised - that is, I miscounted and couldn't be bothered frogging a whole flower!  It uses random threads and is stitched on the same piece of random fabric as the cute kitties from last time.

Then...tonight I have finished The Little Stitcher's Warm hands, Warm heart.  This is the same piece of fabric and different random threads.  Again, it is personalised as I miscounted the side border, then discovered it was 2 stitches short.

Now, I have had a totally weird thought, bear with me.  So far, I have stitched 3 of this year's designs and I think I stitched 3 (or possibly 4) of last year's too.  I may even have a few from the previous year.  Wouldn't it be a great idea to sort out fabrics and trims for these...............and finish finish them...actually make them into ornies!!!!!  I told you it was weird!!!

I like how you 'personalise' your charts! The mittens are really sweet. I wish you luck with your finish-finishes. If it's of any incentive, I used to hate finishing mine but have so far fully finished off 25 ornies this year! Come on, try and catch me up, I dare you!! :)

I think it's bad luck to stitch the design exactly to the chart....the stitching gods might be angered if it was perfect....that's my excuse for 'personalizing' the designs!!! Love the little mittens designs, that's so cute! And if you manage to finish finish them I'll be very jealous.... and also very impressed :)

Fantastic finishes. Yes finishing them off is important too. It's frustrating but important. Good luck.

WAIT! You mean we're supposed to *do* something with them when we're done stitching them?!?

Great work on the SAL, very inspiring for everyone else too. Thank you!

Fully finishing is certainly a novel idea. Give it a go, it might catch on.

I wouldn't have noticed the personalised touches only you mentioned them. The idea of finished finishes is attractive.
