I hope everyone had a great and hopefully snow free week! Though I do hear that snow is in the forecast again but I guess it is winter.
So last week I started working on a Lizzie*Kate Snippet that was only supposed to take a couple of days. Well that plan didn't work out but it is finished now! Yay!!

So next comes the dreaded question... "what should I do with it now?" Well I thought maybe I should make it into a pillow ornament and hang it from my shelf of 'things' in my room. Hmmm...Good idea I tell myself!
Now the hunt is on! I need some fabric for the back. I was thinking something flowery but I don't have any in my stash. I am trying NOT to spend money on XS stuff this year (though I did buy an Etsy chart for $1.50, thanks Rachel!) So I decided to use some scrap aida I have. Then another thought pops in my head. Whenever someone read what I was stitching I would tell them 'and that's me!' so I decided to stitch that on some aida and use it for the back!
I used the same border from the L*K design and looked through the letters to see what I could use. Most of them where there already; thank goodness, but I had to design a couple to fit in with the other lettering.

That brings me to the next step with this finish and a new SAL!
Rachel over at Ten Hour Stitcher has started a new SAL. It is called the Fully-Finished Gallery SAL. It is designed to encourage us to move things from our Finished Pile to our Fully Finished Pile. It will also be a place for us to display our finishes and drool over other people's finishes that have been completed during the last month. So I just HAD to finish this today so I could participate in the SAL!
And now presenting my fully finished
I would like to encourage you to check out the Fully-Finished Gallery SAL; even of you don't have one to share this month. I think there will be lots of gorgeous pieces for you to enjoy.
Sorry I didn't mean to talk so much! LOL
Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!
