It's all in the preparation

Yesterday seemed to be the day that all the stitching was in preparation for some finishes this week. I now have a small pile of cross stitched squares ready to make into three biscornus. It will be good to get these completed and sent of to their various recipients.
I managed to complete the stitching on this Lizzie Kate design too. This will be made into a pin keep this week. It was quite fun doing the basket weave stitch.
If anyone would like this pattern let me know. I have stitched both charts now and would be happy to pass it on so someone else can enjoy it. I then cut all these up ready for sewing today. The top squares are to be made into little hanging pictures for a neighbour. I have the fronts and backs all cut ready. I just have to get some wadding cut and pin them all together. I am hoping that I will get the little hanging loop the right way, I always manage to do it so it is on the inside!
The bottom pile is ready to make into more catnip pouches. I completed two that were ready for stuffing yesterday. These ones need to be made from scratch and some little pouches to go inside for the catnip.
I may use some of these motifs to make cards. I would add some novelty buttons to them. I will do some experimenting and see how it goes.
