Sorry to be gone so long.....

What a busy summer I have had! I'm sorry to have been gone so long...I have been making use of my time though! In the picture above, there are three quick projects I have recently done.
The biscornu on the spool is a Sue Hillis Class Project. She came to my guild's (Gentle Pursuits EGA) Christmas in August event. Sue is a delightful teacher and we had fun stitching up this lovely project. I was able to complete it within a week of the class!
The wooden thread keeper is an Erica Micheal's pattern done on 40 count silk gauze. I put it on this cute thread board that I had purchased awhile back. The threads are Belle Soie.
Last, but not least is a little keychain I whipped up this morning. The "witch" chart is a freebie from The Primitive Hare. I ran to Walmart this morning to pick up a key chain fob for it...and I found these cute round charms to add! What do you think? The Thread is WDW Charcoal and the linen is a 40 count scrap from a grab bag purchase from Vikki Clayton's HDF website!
I must have been having lots of fun while I was away!

Lovely finishes! I haven't seen a biscornu finished with lace. I like the effect and will definitely file this in my idea folder.

Oh - love the witch fob! what a cute finish that is. I saw your post on the HDF bb about it. Thanks for sharing such your lovely stitching!
