Returned from the finisher

I have had quite a few things return from the finisher.  Although is was pricey to send everything at once, I am really enjoying seeing everything in a final form.

Before I show you the pictures, I wanted to show you all the new Starbucks winter bear.  Isn't he cute??!!!  I have two Valentine's Bears and the same Starbucks bear from the first Starbucks in Seattle.  These bears are too sweet!

Here is my first finish!  The Pink Angel!  I got the black and white ribbon in France last year.  I love it.  There was acutaly a little debacle with the finishing and this is the second attempt with this pillow.  When I got the first version back, my ribbon was nowhere to be found and the pillow was finished in a black and white print.  It was not the cutest.  This looks much better.  I am so glad they found my ribbon and the extras are back with me.

A&M stocking ornament!  SEC!!

This is not a recent finish but rather one of my first pieces.  My grandma got the rocking horse piece from Merribee Needlearts near FM1960.  My grandma also picked out all wool threads, which is what she used when she needlepointed.  When she could not complete the piece because the holes were so small (18 count), I told her I would complete the piece.  I used some of her Paternayan wool, but used a lot of different threads and stitches, thanks to Carolyn.
