One of those days....

Hello Friends and Buddies! I'm having one of "those" days and although I think Wednesday is a 9 letter word...it sure feels like a 4 letter one...........hrmph!

Today was laundry day and since I have to be in the basement anyway....it usually is my "finishing" day too. So here are the latest squares from Fair and Square these were stitched by the lovely Marg (who doesn't have a blog). I finished them as a Cube:



how about that snazzy placement of the pearl headed pins?! I just came up with that as I was sticking them in...turned out pretty cute...a little flower and leaves :)

And as promised I made a Cube Tutorial for your viewing pleasure and it can be found HERE or in my sidebar under "The Twisted Stitcher's Tutorials" - *NEW* Cube Finish.

OK pardners that's all I got for you today....I don't want my foul mood to rub off on anybody so I'm coming in quick and fast! Although, since I'm an eternal optimist I shall say there IS one silver lining to every grey cloud and today's is this: TOMORROW is THURSDAY...*I think I CAN. I think I CAN* until the weekend! ;)

  16. Lovely finishing, Vonna, and Marg stitched lovely squares for you (looks like Prairie Schooler?). I thought that was a special pin or button at the top, how creative to arrange the coloured pins into a flower! LOVE IT!

    Hope tomorrow is better for you :-D
