On A Roll

   I've been on a roll since my last post and I have not just one but 2 finishes to share tonight!!  I didn't finish Cinnamon Stars the same night as my last post but I did manage to get it done the following night!  It is so cute and I can't wait to get it to the framer!  Please note that the scarecrow now has a head!!

   After I finished CS, I pulled out a WIP that had been languishing for way too long.  I don't know why I put this one down but it is another cutie patootie and I think I am going to give this one to my DIL for Christmas.

   The colors on this are so bright! I couldn't get a good picture that would show it well but I just love this one and I hope she does too.  I see it framed in that favorite molding of mine, the primitive looking red toned one with the gold inner edge, the same one I framed  One Nation with.  We'll have to see what my framer comes up with.  She can be very creative!!
   So now I am back to having to choose something else to work on.  Not sure if it will be a new start or back to work on a UFO.  But I'm pretty sure 3 finishes in one month is a record for me and I'm going to relish that for a while!  
   Well, that's about all for me for now.  Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you find some time for yourselves for a little stitching this weekend.
