A Gift, 2 finishes & a new start!
After 5 LONG weeks, a package that Mylene sent me finally arrived. She had told me about it, since it appeared to have become lost in the mail. Imagine my surprise this week, when I found the package in the mailbox! Oh my! Was it ever worth waiting for! I LOVE this design & just hadn't stitched it yet!
We went to the 'big city' one day last week. We finally got to take our youngest out for his birthday meal. (his birthday was in Oct) Anyway, we went in Barnes & Noble & of course, I had to look at the magazines. I found one of the British ones that I liked. DH told me get it, so I did!!!!! The little card was a kit in the magazine. Too cute!
Next up, I knew I wanted to stitch this little reindeer behind the tree. Imagine my surprise when my grab bag of floss arrived & had the perfect colors in it. I used Carrie's silks for all the colors, except black & white. The fabric is from a 'new to me' shop. The shop is called youthfulhandsneedlecrafts.com. I ordered a few pieces of different fabrics!! Love them!
I then started another new project. I am going to leave you hanging as to what it is, just show you my start & let you wonder.
I appreciate SO MUCH those of you who visit & then take the time to leave a comment. It means so much to me. It only takes a few extra seconds to leave a comment & you never know how much that little comment can make the persons day. Thanks!!!!!!
Have a great day & a great weekend!
