Fully Finished Gallery SAL - September Finishing Frenzy

It's the 10th of the month, so check out Rachel's blog to see all her lovely finishes and the link up for everyone else's.

I had today off, and it was a school day, so I drove off to the local ReSource (Habitat for Humanity thrift shop) and Goodwill stores. I found all I wanted at the first ReSource store, 3 canvases and one rectangular frame. I decided to stop there for now and finish with the materials I had instead of collecting finishing materials as well as finishes.

As an added precaution, I actually measured the size of each finish in my drawer of shame finishes, so I knew what I was looking for and what might work. In the end I have 4 finishes to show you. One was finished before partly, but not fully complete and hanging up.

If you've picked yourself up from your chairs in shock at all these finishes, here's the photos! :)

 Somebunny from WOXS 
Stitched 2 over 2 as charted on 28ct Aether by Chromatic Alchemy

 I Love You More Today by Jodyri Designs
stitched 2 over 2 with stash threads on 28ct Eye of Newt by Chromatic Alchemy

Canada Mandala by Ink Circles
stitched 2 over 2 with Ruby Slippers by Jodyri on 28 ct ivory fabric 

Dog Lessons by Lizzie Kate
stitched 2 over 2 on 28ct beige fabric with some thread changes and modified the dog to look more like our dearly departed basset hound. 

The bottom 2 are already hanging up in the house and Somebunny might be a birthday gift for DD, and I Love You More for DH's birthday in a few months. 

Happy Stitching and thanks again for the inspiration Rachel!



  1. Wonderful! Great projects and finishes.

  2. Well done you!! Four in one day?! I haven't yet picked my chin up off the floor!
    Seriously, though, well done. They all look fantastic and just go to show you don't need anything fancy or expensive to FFO a cross stitch. Hope DD and Hubby like their gifts. :)

  3. Wohoo!!! Love them all. Congrats on 4 gorgeous finishes.

  4. Congrats on the beautiful finishes Tiffany. I love the basset hound.


  5. Oh wow, look at them all, they're fantastic! And you have two perfect gifts!

  6. Wonderful projects. I love that sweet bunny and I laughed out loud at the I Love You More. I needed to stitch this when my daughter was young :)

    1. Thank you! And yes, I do love that one as well.

  7. That's a lot of finishing, well done! I like your canvas finishes, they are so simple, yet so effective.

  8. Great work and well done on measuring BEFORE you left the house and not just hoping to luck!


Thanks for any comments!

People's Choice SAL - Most Stitched Designer

This week it's time to choose the designer we stitch the most. I think it's easy for some, but I tend to hop around and stitch on...
