Two more finishes...

I'm so happy to say I sqeeked out two more finishes last night!  I've stitched my first Christmas ornament of the year.  It turned out a little bigger than I'd intended, so I'll probably use it as a door knob decoration once it's Completed.  It was also a milestone for me--my first experience with Beading.  Only 6 total and I managed just fine. I don't think I'm quite ready to tackle that Mirabella in my stash just yet though!

My second finish you'll just have to be in suspense over :D.  It's for an exchange and will be mailing out this week.  Once she received it, i'll add a pic.  

I will however share a pic of a former UFO & current WIP.  It's a tea towel for my best friends birthday.  I changed the colors to match her kitchen; however I'm having a bit a trouble.  The Cup is DMC 920 with 632 outer ring & 3863 inner ring.  I need one more even lighter color for the center circle and can't quite come up with the right combo.  Anybody care to offer a  "best color"?



I look forward to hearing from you and your color ideas!  Happy Sunday and Happy Stitching!  =)

Marching right along...

Hello there followers.  I have a lot to post today so I'll get right to it...
I have two finishes to share:
Remember my House SAL from 2012--DONE!! 

December House


Entire SAL



And I've completed another Love Quilt Square: 
The best part about this particular square is that my 12 year old SON stitched some of it.  He asked to help.  My heart just beamed =)


On a decoration note I decided it was time to decorate for Easter.  I didn't have a lot to work with so I stopped into my local thrift store and lookey what I found:





Aren't they great?  I spent a whole $3 on them.

Here's how I used them along with another bunny and grass rug I picked up @ Hobby Lobby:





That's all I have for now.  Thanks for stopping by.  Leave a comment or two if you'd like.  I'm working on a couple more finishes.  Who know's I'm might shock you & post again VERY SOON! Until then Happy Stitching!!!! =)
