Just in the nick of time

Hello all, I am pleased to be joining in again this year with all you Sew It's Finished girls.  My efforts last year were not brilliant, but I was chuffed to see the bag I finished made it into the mosaic for the header/sidebar button!  I have updated my 2012 list on my blog.  You can find it here if you're interested, but sadly it doesn't look all that different from last year.

Today I decided if I was going to squeeze in a finish before the end of the month it would have to be an easy one, and it didn't come much easier than finishing this little Lavender pillow from a Country Threads magazine, which I stitched about 6 years ago.  For goodness sake, it only took about four minutes to stitch the opening closed!  I'm pretty sure this is one I mentioned last year as being one that wouldn't take much effort to finish and still I left it a whole year - what is wrong with me??


Anyway, I am enjoying seeing so many finishes from everyone, and I'm sure there will be lots more in 2012.  

Good luck girls............ Nicky

It is lovely - and only a few minutes to finish?? I do wonder about my passion sometimes - its really is like an addiction at times. But at least we are not alone.

Isn't it funny how some of the simplest tasks can take forever to finish? Such a lovely pillow - well worth finishing!

The simplest things seem to trip us up sometimes. Nice finish!
