I’m Done!

Oh happy day!  All my obligations for this year are complete and now I can start thinking about projects for me.  My swap gifts are made and have been sent out except for one which according to the rules cannot be sent out til November. Woo hoo!  I have so many things on my ‘to do’ list I just don’t know where to start…but I’m sure I’ll find something to occupy both my hands and mind.


Four more great gals sent me photos of their completed First Friday Freebie, ‘Fall is in the Air!’

GetAttachmentThe first one is from Bea who made hers into a pillow.  What a beautiful photo!  Bea is from France and she was my swap partner in the ‘Good ‘Ol Summertime’ mini quilt swap.

100_0835 This next one is from Karen in Florida.  Cool, huh?

Carol Lewis Fall is in the Air

This one is from Carol Lewis.  Love that homespun border, Carol!


And this last one is from Kathy in British Columbia.  Unfortunately Kathy didn’t send me a link to her blog so I can’t pass it on to you.

Thank you all so much for sharing.


While I’m on the subject of new designs, don’t forget to come back this Friday because it’s the first Friday of the month and you know what that means… First Friday Freebie day!

fff button_sml[1] I don’t know about you but I’m sure excited!

See y’all on Friday!  Til then…

Happy stitching!

I'm excited just following along. Everyone is having such fun with your freebie. I've seen Carrie's darling pillow with rick rack. It must be fun and rewarding for you to see what other's are making.

What lovely stitching. It's so neat to see how everyone is doing them a little differently.

Oh! How exciting that you get to do your own things now! I was so glad when my nieces and nephews got done marrying and having babies--they kept me busy making wedding and baby quilts for a couple of years.

Nanette Merrill said...

Oh I am jealous to see you so caught up and on top of things! Fun.

Karen said...

It is fun seeing the different completed stitcheries that people have done. The choice of border fabric makes each one different and interesting. The one photographed with the fall flowers was a good idea.
I am looking forward to your next freebie.
And how fun to get to work on just what you want to work on the rest of the year.

The stitcheries look great, you must be very proud to see your design, made by others.

Oh, to be done like you, my friend! I'm only just beginning...

All those finishes are awesome! Our printer isn't feeling too good these days or I might have made one as well... it's a great pattern!

That is a great feeling!
Good for you!

Carrie P. said...

Oh, those are great. I see some others made pillows too.

Allie said...

Wah - I so wish I could say I was done with all my obligations! Maybe next month? But then I'll probably commit to something else. Sigh.

Love all the stitcheries everyone did - and looking forward to Friday!

Annette said...

What a great feeling to be caught up. I'm still working to get there. I love seeing how everyone is doing your stitchery design. They are all beautiful.

Heidi said...

It is so great to be ahead of the game, isn't it!?! The photos of your design are great and all so different.
