Cross-eyed cricket finishes

Here are 2 more finishes.
This is CEC 2010 carrot freebie. I made a few changes in the pattern. I have the carrot series already done and display them each Easter. My mom is the one that is good at this type of finishing...but I'm learning and help when I can.
These are from Leaflets # 242, 243 Rabbit's garden & Rabbit's delight

This is the September acorn ABC from Acorns fall from CEC
I see all the finishes I did this week and start to feel a bit guilty about my stitching time....but I did get DD's room finished on the painting after tedious wallpaper and paste removal and she & I will have fun arranging everything back in there. The house is picked up and cleaned....the last load of laundry is in.
I do know that my stitching time will end up being evenings only very soon as the weather is warming up and outside duties will be calling me....I guess that's why I don't feel bad that the cold winter months is when I get lots of stitching time.(well, I don't ever really feel guilty about it lol).

I just love your carrots! I was going to do those and even found a tree to hang them from. I've never gotten to them. Now I see yours and I want them!! They look wonderful.

I'm glad you came around to that conclusion of feeling no guilt...stitchers aren't supposed to feel guilt.
Love all the carrots and your mom is a great finisher!

I love your carrots!

I must stitch my carrots! I have the charts and the fabric, but they are not stitched yet!

Can you tell me where to get the freebie chart?

Your carrots are adorable! I too have the charts but have yet to stitch them. Seeing yours makes me want to stitch them now but I have a few exchanges I have to work on first.

Cute finishes! I LOVE your carrot tree. I have those CEC leaflets but haven't yet stitched the carrots.
