Small But Done!

It is a small finish but a finish nonetheless!

Excuse the poor photos-I just wasn't in a color correcting mood. I finished this myself - pretty easy but a little fiddly due to it's small size and my big hands. It's hard to see in the photograph but there is cording around the edges. After working on big projects lately this was refreshing!

We finished our closet reorg this weekend. It turned into being less of a reorg and more of a modification of the closet organizer we already had. It's amazing how quickly "stuff" accumulates. We clean closets regularly and I'm always surprised. Next weekend it's Jake's closet. We're completely replacing his closet organizer. Getting him to edit his things will take an Act of Congress. The best I can hope for is that he'll pack up everything and it all won't make it back into his room.

Thank you all for your visits and your comments. May all your stitches be happy ones!

What a sweet finish! And I agree, it is refreshing to stitch something smaller every now and again. That's funny about your son. :) I can't get mine to get rid of anything and he wants to complain about the clutter in his room.

fabulous finish small or not! sounds like you are still busy and going at it in the house. i totally understand how you clean out closets and yet, there is always more stuff that you thought you got rid of or that you didn't realize was there, it's seems to be a never ending battle. Hugs!!
