WIPocalypse update and some finishing

Lots of pics!!

First up, my latest progress on the Labyrinth.  I had high hopes of finishing this as a Christmas gift for DH....erm.....well, maybe for his birthday in March?  I just can't get into it.  But it IS progressing, albeit slowly.

Next, I bannerified the Lizzie Kate Autumn boxer.
There were a few issues with the banner - yes, that is a bit of a wavy bottom, and the sides aren't perfect, either - but I like it.  It is hanging on the end of my kitchen cabinets, and my daughter has proclaimed it "piddy."  LOL

And finally, I finished the forget-me-knots kit from Olde Colonial Designs.  While I like the finished product, I'm not crazy about the kit itself.  The pattern didn't match the cover picture - I had to add some flowers, and the color of the lettering didn't seem right (the pic looked green, but it was charted for blue, which is what I used).  I did the framing myself with the included frame.  Oh, and I backstitched my initials underneath the little heart charm!

Wonderful finishes! They both look awesome! You could tack a piece of pompom along the bottom of your wall hanging to disguise that wonky bit...
