Finally Fully Finishing Fun for November

  FFG SAL - 10th of each month

Hosted by Rachel the Ten Hour Stitcher

This SAL is designed to motivate us all to do something with that box of Finished pieces instead of just storing them under the bed.  We will all be linking up on Rachel's blog on or after the 10th of each month (10 Hour Stitcher - 10th of the month).

Suffice to say, it has been a bumper month here for FFO'ing!  I'll start with my scrapbook pages.

Barefoot Needle Art Framed Fright

Stitchy Fish Designs Happy Halloween

Now a couple you have seen before,  but not for the FFO Gallery - Beware by Just Nan:

Just Nan Autumn Mouse Scissor Roll:

Here's one that I didn't FFO, but Clare did.  She will be adding it to her Christmas Tree in her Church's festival this year.

Moss Creek Designs Amaryllis

And now, the pièce de résistance, my Scary Apothecary trio from Hands On Design:

This is a multi-frame from B&M made of black plastic.  It was pretty much impossible to frame them without the glass which then made it difficult to take the photos!

For the horizontal frames, I have used some scrapbook paper.  The plan is to stitch some poison bottles on perforated paper and add them to the piece.  Next year.

All three were stitched on 28 count Radioactive linen from Chromatic Alchemy


Finally, it's time to sign up for the Advent Calendar Blog Hop!  For this hop, each participant is allocated a day in December to make their post on.  They will show something they have stitched on a Christmas theme and answer the topic question I set.   I then copy their photo onto my blog post in the style of an Advent Calendar.

So if you'd like to join in, please leave a comment or send me an email.  Let me know if there is a date you would particularly like or one you'd like to avoid.  I will be in touch towards the end of the month!

Here is a link to last year's so you can see how it works:

Jo, it was such a pleasure to see all your Fall/Halloween things finished. You must feel so good about that! You can count me in for the Advent blog hop.

Jo: You have been busy finishing, that is something I need to do.
I love your scrap book pages.
Even tho I do not celebrate Halloween I do like seeing the designs that others stitch, that mouse is so cute.
The flower you stitched for Clare is lovely.
Have a lovely day.


Rachel said...

Wow, so many finishes this month, and they all look great! The frame you found for the Apothecary series couldn't be more perfect, and it almost seems as if you stitched pieces to exactly match the scrapbook papers, especially Fence Cat attempting to see off its doppelganger! Glad this SAL is helping you get through lots of FFOing. Thanks for taking part! :)

Beautiful finishes Jo! The black frame was perfect for the Scarey Apothecary series, and they photographed well too!
Clare made a lovely job of finishing all the flowers, and your amaryllis is so pretty!
Your mouse and scissor roll are gorgeous..... sort of thing I’d love to stitch, but I’d probably never finish it, tee hee, well done you!
I’d like to join in the Advent Hop too, if I’m not too late!
