A few finishes

I realized it is almost the end of June and I have not updated my OPAM this month :-(   must get busy and get that done . I have a few finishes to show you , as you can probably guess by now I do love doing landscapes and have enjoyed making a few small landscapes in the form of postcards which is really fun so I have two to show you that I just finished.  Then on the left is a gold finch I just completed as well , I made a scrappy border in browns , mostly because I didn't have enough of one or even two to do the entire thing but I rather like it this way .  So that gives me three finishes but hey I have one more , one that I did a while ago , much earlier in the month but forgot to show you , can't imagine why as I really love this little mugrug , the stitchery I got from here  a pattern by Vicki of the Pickledish Patch and since I am not a coffee drinker I did tea instead , then my friend Linda gave me the red fabrics , aren't they just gorgeous so we designed the rest of the mugrug to make the best use of the fabrics and to show off the teacups ,love our little prairie points , just too cute don't you think. I even hand quilted it on the diagonal just for the heck of it . Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day . hugs Sheila
