I also finally finish finished Joy To The World.  I used buttons to attach the ribbon.

I also put some backing on it.  My mama gave me the idea to use Christmas cards.  I really like it!  I knew I was saving all those old Christmas cards for something!  Being a pack rat pays off now and then!

Well that is it for me today.  I just got home a bit ago from stitch night, a great time as always.  We started discussing our retreat which is in May!  So exciting!!  

One last thing.  Does anyone talk like this where you live??

I honestly can't tell you how many time someone has asked me "who my fadder was?"


  1. Wow so many FFO's. all lovely..what's next baby?

    1. Thanks Mini! Hopefully next I will have a page finish on my HAED :)

  2. Many lovely pretty FFO's ♥

  3. Wonderful finishes! Love the idea of backing a piece with a card.

    1. Thanks Renee! It is nice to be able to reuse something instead of just throwing it in the garbage :)

  4. Great finishes! What a clever idea to re-use those cards.

    1. Thank you! I didn't want a tree full of ornaments there were all finished the exact same way and these will be great even if they get flipped around they will still be pretty :)
