Finishing Frenzy is continuing over on Cross Stitch Craay, with themed finishes each Thursday. Last week, it was bugs and I did my butterfly pillow - a 14" square needlepoint piece I had stitched back in 2006:

This week it was hearts and I had "Coeur de letrres", an 11" x 7" piece I had stitched back in 2009:

The one on the left is an ereader case called Coffee Break; the two green ones are a card case called Paisely Jacobean and an eyeglass case called Zen Bamboo. All were kits from Stitch & Zip by Alice Peterson ....

Very nice and I like your colors. Does the glue from the felt ever become an issue? I have seen stitcheries ruined by the stuff that used to be used to glue them down before framing.

The packet claims otherwise but we shall see? I've tried fusible webbing before with not-very-good luck so I thought I'd try and see... . I don't expect these to be heirlooms though so I don't care that much.

Here is this week's finishing frenzy, although the piece wasn't "unfinished" all that long (Febraury 5, to be exact!). I'm going to call it "Aurora Borealis"...

FInishing Frenzy this week brought out a needlepoint piece I designed myself (!!!) back in 1974! It's now a pillow and I need to buy more polyfill
