Finish Along 2016 March

I'm calling 5 out of 9 a big success for me. They were all quite small finishes, but some were very time consuming.
This apron was made using the cross back apron pattern on the Purl Soho blog. I used some beautiful linen that I bought in a charity shop in Sweden. So it brings back very happy memories of my trip last year.

My round zip pouch finally got some binding and a cute charm. This is all hand stitched so it was something different and I'll probably make another in a similar style.

The socks that took forever .... About 5 years! But I love wearing them, so I've already bought more wool.

This fabulous thread catcher is from Poppyprint's book "Make it Take it" I love it and would like to make one for a swap too.

I used small pieces of all my favourite fabrics and stuffed with walnut shells .... Though I bought ground ones instead of crushed, so they are a bit fine.

Then finally Miss Maggie Rabbit had a pretty Liberty dress - just in time for Easter.

Hope you all had a great start to the year and managed to get some things finished too :o)
