Today's Finishes

I have been sort of busy trying to finish up a few projects that have been lying around for a while. Some of them I am working on the stitching but the biggest pile needs to be finished into ornaments for my tree.

Christmas is creeping up pretty fast and I just need to get the ambition to follow up on these . I did get LHN's Pear Tree stitched into an ornament today. It has been waiting since February. LOL.

I also got the notion to do some knitting so I am making some dish cloths and washcloths for Christmas gifts. I purchased the orange yarn to knit one with a rubber duck in the middle. But I decided to try just a plain simple one as my first attempt. It was kind a lot of fun but I am a slow knitter and I like to use large needles so things work up fast.
I am definitely going to knit some more of these and I have started a red one with an apple design.

I am off to finish up that last biscornu and get it in the mail and if I finish it up before bedtime, I will stitch a little more on my apple. I am anxious to see how it turns out.
