First day of what?

Good day to you!  I was hoping this latest storm would miss us, but a very fine, wet, heavy bunch of white crap is falling.  I don't know how long it will last, but I am printing the mailing labels and going to the post office today.  Thanks to everyone for your orders!  My oval boxes came in Friday and I purchased 60 of them.  Hopefully, I will be painting them soon and have them ready for labels.  Starting over is not something I look forward to.

I wanted to show you some finished pear designs.  First one isn't even a pear.  Daniela in Finland made this as an exchange for Pokua in Australia. 
She moved a few letters that resulted in this sweet pincushion.  
Plumbrod's sweet finish.

And the latest is something different. Dorothée made this wonderful pinkeep - take a look at the back!
Well, after having to start completely over with downloading these photos and signing in again over ten times, this laptop may see the white crap up close and personal.  My old Vista with the new hard drive is 20 times slower than before, and now this new one is giving me fits by logging me out of Blogger, Pinterest, Ebay and others every few minutes. 
So the tags will be mailed today, I charted the next pear last night, and will stitch it this evening.  I'm sure there will be changes in colors as I go along.
Have a great week - stay safe - thank you for visiting!

So neat to see all the different finishes isn't it? And it all started with YOUR creativity. Thanks again for your free patterns. ;)

It is so interestng to see how everyone does their own interpretation of a design, I loved seeing all the different pears and I am excited to see the new one. They are what inspired me to try this cross stitching thing and I must say, I am hooked.Thanks so much Marly for sharing.

White crap here too! lol! So far it is melting as it gets to the ground. Great looking pear finishes! They are all very inspiring!

Where I live in the midwest got 11-17" yesterday--not to mention the drifting. Roads are very hazerdous! Will be 55 by Friday--so then a flood! Nice to see some examples of your pear designs. Thanks.

All the pears look wonderful. I got your shipping e-mail and look forward to receiving my package of tags. Thanks!

The snow missed us thank goodness and I hear that it might be 50 by the end of the week. It's been so cold that I might die of heat stoke! LOL I love seeing what people do with your designs. And I love that you share them with us.

Margaret said...

We are lucking out -- no snow here. It's amazing -- first time we've missed out! lol! Now I've probably jinxed it. Love all the pear finishes. Can't wait to see the next one! I love your pears!

Barb said...

The pear designs all look great no matter the finish! You are so generous to have shared them all!

Oh I love your photo with the white crap lol. You can tell that I live somewhere where a girl can get excited by a few flakes :).

Oh I love looking at all of your pear designs. I always knew that a bowl of pears would look wonderful. - Sandra.

Mary said...

What a great idea, turning your pear into a pinkeep.....the wheels are turning!

Really neat idea turning the pear into pin keep.

All the pears are great.

(no accumulation, but snow blowing here)

Hiya Marly -
We had white crap here too - hoping it keeps us from a drought but I don't thin we got enough!! all the things people made from your patterns are lovely!!

busyhands said...

I love your photo of the snow... Stay warm!
Beautiful finishes, thank you for sharing

Mouse said...

ohhhh you have snow too ... its started again this morning ... love how every one has finished their pear designs .. really like the pear keep one ... must get round to stitching these ... hope your crafting goes well :) love mouse xxxxx

Carol said...

Yes, my heart just sunk when I saw our latest snowfall, Marly--at this point I'm seriously reconsidering my plan to stay up north during my retirement years!!

It must be so rewarding to see your pear designs finished so many ways--really love the pincushion square. That looks like something that I could manage :)

Good luck with all of your box finishes--I know they'll be lovely...

Shirlee said...

I just don't understand your post & the comments about white "crap" ... especially Carol's comment about her heart sinking when she saw the latest snowfall! Good grief ... I'd be strapping on my snowshoes, heading outside & dashing to & fro with immense glee! Well, maybe not ... I think my dashing days are over, but I'd certainly be out there shuffling along in the snow! We've got a bit of the central KY talcum powder stuff falling here & I'm enjoying at least this small amount : )

Love to see everyone's interpretations of your lovey designs, that pin cushion is wonderful! Hope the white crap disappears for you soon, enough already!

Maggee said...

I have stitched two of your pears but they are sitting on my desk near here, waiting for me to finish them! And I will, soon. Then I will post pictures. Life has been odd this winter, for sure. Thanks for sharing! Hugs!
