Completed 2 finishes....

When I finish a project, it is just that, stitching finished. When it is completed, then I celebrate. My stitching break is officially over. I must stitch everyday! Yesterday, I managed to complete Milady....
I do not want to make it into a necklace, maybe a pin. For now a simple ribbon will do.

Then I worked on ....Sewing Bird Pinkeep...
The pattern called for an oil can to finish it, but I like the wooden ball. I tried to rust pins and for now I simply attached the strawberry. Maybe a rusted pin will appear.
I picked up Day 10 to work on...
I am using DMC not the silk as in the pattern and working 2 over 2...I really like the colors in this.
Very very windy outside today...I thought about sitting on the lanai to stitch, but threads will fly!  Looked out earlier to see a bird almost flying sideways!
Mr H is feeling better. i think the virus is out of his system.Thank you for stopping by and chatting with me. As always, thank you too for the kind words my friends.....have a great day.
