Announcing Quick Finishes Needlework Magazine!

Dear Needlework Friends,

How many of you have a “Bucket List” of things you want to accomplish in your lifetime?

For me, Quick Finishes Magazine is one to check off. I love the thought of giving customers an online Magazine which includes Quick Projects in Cross Stitch, Crochet, Knitting, Sewing, and Plastic Canvas, at an inexpensive price.

At 52, I am a fan of the vintage magazines which have done this. Eventually those were bought by bigger companies which used the patterns in their books, or as e-patterns, sold individually. But the idea has always intrigued me.

If you saw my “office’ (ok, bedroom), you would see buckets of unfinished designs. I started my business in 1995, with Crochet designs. I still love to sit with a hook, thread, pen, and paper, although my handwriting does not help deciphering these later…

The past few years have been busy ones… I started caring for my Granddaughter as a baby, and she is now 3 1/2. So, if some of you wonder if Linen Flowers/Timeless Handwork is still designing, the answer is YES. (She loves to see the “majic” of the crochet chain as you pull it and it disappears!)

So, without further ado, here is the Premier Issue of Quick Finishes Magazine, the October Issue, “Decorate The Tree.”

God bless you,


Linen Flowers/Timeless Handwork

Creative Needlework Design Since 1995

P.S. In the December Issue (Quick Finishes is published every two months), look for many “Snowflake” designs, including my Cross Stitch version of the elusive, “Swirly Snow…”



#QF01 Winter Cardinal (Cross Stitch)

A snowy, winter scene provides a stunning backdrop for bright red Cardinals. This tiny bird ornament will stitch up quickly for your holiday tree. Design uses DMC Floss. Design size: 34 w x 34 h. (c) 2017 Linen Flowers.

#QF02 Angelic Ornament (Crochet)

This crocheted Angel features a Rose at her neckline, and is a lovely addition to your Christmas tree ornaments. The project uses Size 10 crochet thread and a steel hook. (c) 2017 Timeless Handwork.

#QF03 Skate Around The Ice Ornament (Knitting)

A tiny treasure for the tree, or as a gift for a special friend, knit this cute Ice Skating Ornament in no time. The project uses worsted weight yarn and straight knitting needles. (c) 2017 Timeless Handwork.

#QF04 Little Bird Ornament (Sewing)

A little bird has flown to the branches of our holiday tree, but she is sewn with cotton fabric scraps. (c) 2017 Timeless Handwork.

#QF05 Treetop Rose Cross (Plastic Canvas)

After decorating the Christmas tree, the final step is to place a very special ornament at the tree’s top. This plastic canvas cross will be a graceful heirloom, with a rosebud at its center. The project is stitched with worsted weight yarn on 7 mesh plastic canvas. (c) 2017 Timeless Handwork.
