A couple catch-ups

In my fine tradition of doing everything late......

Since I did the finishing at the last minute, I didn't get a chance to show the final products before Christmas. The first two are my BIL's ornie. The front is an over-1 version in Needle Necessities of an old French pattern:

And for my sister an over-one penguin on one of mom's spools:

I'd like to be able to do what lots of other folks are, and share my favorite finish of 2007, but at the moment I think my favorite one is a still-secret one. Mind you this week it's owner is supposed to finally meet it and go to get it framed, but that'd hinge on me finding it. Sigh. I just saw it before Christmas and, well, apparently I put it "somewhere safe." Dang it I hate it when I do that!

More soon... I have many exchanges and gifts to share, but, alas, no time!

Have a lovely!!!!!

Gorgeous finishes.

And putting things away so well (in a safe place) that I never see them again is my special secret magic power.

Beautiful finishes! I really like the penguin one, too cute. :)

I hope you find your framing piece. I have a habit of loosing things in safe places too.
