A couple months back, someone I vaguely know in passing from a website I frequent took possession of several of the items I had been giving away. She wanted to compensate me somehow, I gave her my PayPal address and my mailing address and forgot about it.
A few days ago I received a package from her that was so perfectly me! She included a project bag she made, a nice card, some sock yarn, a skein of beautiful metallic embroidery floss, and a gorgeous focal bead!
To say I was thrilled is an understatement!
The project bag is perfect because my doggos are two of my favorite people!
This photo does not do the bead justice!
Anyway, thank you again, dear stranger / friend from the internet! ❤️❤️❤️
A few weeks ago I was browsing Etsy and I found myself looking at cross stitch patterns. A few minutes later I was printing out my new purchases to put into a binder, and ordering embroidery floss online to pick up at Michael’s on my next trip into town.
The first pattern I stitched is going to be a gift for Tracy over at Art Resurrected so I can’t post the photos yet. But I can share some of the others I’ve stitched since.
First up is Live Laugh Lube. This one made me laugh and the seller has some even better ones I hope to be stitching soon!
Then I stitched up these little cuties. They, and others, will be going into 4″ x 4″ frames to be sold at the Antelope Valley Indian Museum on December 1st.
I’m currently stitching a really fun design (and ooooh all the colors!) but it’s also a Christmas and I’m not sure if she follows this blog, so I won’t be posting it until she’s received it.
I’m having a lot more fun doing this than I thought I would be and I can’t wait to get started on my next projects!
