Finishing Day

I decided today that I would finishing adding the beads to Jeweled Ornament. I only had to add about 20 of them so it didn't take me too long so I decided to go ahead and finish it into a ornament.

It turned out okay not as good as I had hoped. The picture doesn't do the fabric justice. It has a bunch of gold sparkles in it and is really pretty.

After I finished the ornament I was still in a finishing mood so I decided to look and see what was in my WTF pile. I came across some cute pumpkins and decided that they would work perfect on a tin. I have never made one so why not try?!

I think it looks a little awkward but that is okay I actually learned a lot from this first time making one.

Now that I got my finishing out of my system I think I will head off and so some actual stitching today!

Great finishing, Dawn! I like the fabric you used to finish the Jeweled design. It's just right! The tin topper is super cute, too.
