The first finish-finish is from January, but after that month's FFG checkin. I stitched Magical's Bookmark of the Month, and finished it right away as intended. You've already seen it finished, but I thought I'd talk a little about HOW it was finished, since I think that's pretty cool - she included this backstitch outline with the pattern, and instead of doing two identical halves, this time it was sewn together down the middle! Here's a pre finish picture to show you what I mean:
It was fun and I think it worked great, too! She included the same kind of finish for the February pattern, so I think I'm going to do it again.
Next is an early February finish - this year's Valentine's card for my husband, and also my card for Jo's Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop. I have yet to hop around and see who got it, so no spoilers please! Just like the last three (it's the last of a series of four, so I'm going to have to think of something new next year) I used double sided tape to make a card.
And last but not least, I had Felix frame Whacky Witches last weekend! I finished this last summer, but didn't get it finish-finished for Halloween, so I really wanted to get it done now. I found a great black/silber frame (originally I wanted an oval frame, but couldn't find one I liked; there aren't a lot of them and the ones there are are super expensive!) and Felix was so kind to work on it Sunday. I'm very proud of him, I think it was his biggest framing job so far! (It's a 40x50cm frame)
