I got an urge . . .

to finish things.

I guess it's because I keep seeing all these gorgeous finishes in the blogosphere, but I am really starting to want to finish things. I have two boxes of unframed finishes--my secret shame, y'all--that need to have something done with them and it's time to start.

Thanks to my aunt, I know how to do the cubes now, but I had so much fun with that little tuck from Sanman, and I was thinking Magic Hat would be wonderful as a little plaque (that doesn't look right, but I can't spell today) on the wall. That way, it's cute, and I wouldn't have the usual guilt and tension that accompanies my seasonal framed things (this is too pretty to hide away til Christmas, what if one of the cats breaks the glass between now and then). And flat folds, well those just look easy peezy to make.

I know I am still learning and I need to improve my skills. My ornaments aren't that great yet. Maybe because I can only do no-sew. But they are still pretty decent. Decent enough for second place at the fair, LOL.

You've got to start somewhere though :o) Having your items finished will enable you to enjoy them too.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
