It is Spring Break this week, so I have big plans to finish a lot of projects around the house. My husband even took the week off to help. Unfortunately, he has been sick for the past few days, so the big projects will have to wait until tomorrow. So, I just couldn't let a free day be wasted. Today, I have been working on several of my completed pieces, doing a bit of finishing. First, I finished my biscornu for the Hooked on Exchanging group. Can't post a picture yet, but it is really cute. Next, I finished a CCN piece as a pinkeep. This is the second of this series that I have completed and each will be made into a pinkeep.
Since this was so easy, I decided to finish the blocks that I received from Sonda in the Fair and Square exchange as a pinkeep also. It turned out so pretty. I followed Vonda's example and grouped my pins to add a bit of interest. I think this is so pretty. Sonda did such a wonderful job stitching the piece, it had to be finished as something pretty.
Then, I went through my chest of finished items and decided to work on one of the Easter pieces I have. I finished this RTRD piece as a block. The cording was made with floss from an old kit. I had a bit of trouble with the cording, but finally got my husband to help. It is so cute. I still need to add a bow, but I need to find the right ribbon.
I do have a couple of other items to try and finish today, but my nephews (2 and 4 years old) are coming to spend the night with us. That will definitely limit how much crafting I will do the rest of today.
