First finish....

I've seen so many 'First Finish for 2014' posts on FB and felt way behind each time.  To my credit, I've finished many projects, just not of the stitching type.  Guides have been written for at least three canvases and several new designs drawn up and painted. Made an awesome mobile with my daughter one weekend and have a baby sweater on the needles for my soon to arrive grand baby girl. Yay!  

So below is my actual first 'finish' of the stitchy type.  He was a blast to work up even if the beard did give me a few fits.

Fish Eye Turkey Work with Vineyard Classic
First time ever that I've not brushed and cut Turkey Work.
The Classic doesn't need it I'm happy to say.

Next up on the frame is a dragonfly....stumpwork, maybe, almost positive, yes...it's playtime.  Wings that glisten are in my head.

    1. I do love Fish Eye Turkey Work and the Vineyard Classic made it pretty darn special! Had to trim outside as the orts were floating everywhere!
