Finally Finished ! The puffy flower blanket and Santa Stocking !

 Good morning ! I finally finished sewing in the ends of my puffy flower blanket .. It is staying in the living room for now.. The aqua and turquoise colors look really pretty with the gray..

 It measures 62 inches by 84 inches..here is the pattern

 I also finished stitching  the year and a half or more long stocking project. This stocking is made by Dimensions ( its a kit)   So many color changes and getting lost and having to redo.. So glad its done.. but I think the new one I started is even worse with color changes !




 I finished a couple more Prairie Schooler Santas, and started another one. Going to have to start finishing them into ornaments !
 This week I had to go for Jury duty... I went on Monday and they let us out at 11:30 for the day, they didn't use any of the 130 jurors they had that day .. I didn't have to go back Tuesday , and yesterday I went but again no jurors were used and we were out by 11:30 and they said we were done for the week ! Can't beat that :)
I started this stocking for my youngest son, got some stitching time in while sitting waiting at Jury duty.
We have had a couple days of really nice weather , but now its back in the 40's ,going to be in the 50's the whole weekend. Hoping to plant our vegetable garden the first of next week if its not too wet and cold. Hoping for some nice weather :)
My college boy is on his way home from Kentucky .. this year seemed to go by so fast ..

Such a pretty blanket - I just love the colors. Wow - is that ever an intensely detailed stocking - instant Family Heirloom (at least in my book!).

So many beautiful finishes, Priscilla!! I love how multi-talented you are :) The blanket and stocking are gorgeous, and, of course, I love those PS Santas... Why I haven't stitched more of them is beyond me :)

Enjoy your weekend!
