Progress, a finish and a find


A quick update on ""Wintertime Wolves". I didn't think I would enjoy this Cross Stitch as much as I do, it really isn't my "thing". However Miss P loves wolves (one too many Twilight movies methinks) so she begged me to do it for her room.  It is starting to take form as I noticed when I removed the hoop to change position.

I am planning the frame I will use on this one which is optimistic thinking since I am not a quarter of the way finished yet.

A Find

I have neglected my Op-shopping forays but yesterday I popped into one of my favourites and hit the motherload.  These brand new Buetron buttons that had fallen off their cards but were otherwise unused.  33 Beautiful buttons that I cannot wait to use in my scrapbooking pages or on cards for the grand total of $3-99.  Made me a happy camper.

A Finish

I found this little ornament needing three stitches to finish it off last night.  I began stitching this from a "freebie" but for the life of me I cannot remember the site.  The pattern was not with it.  I am planning to make a little cushion with a button centre so I will sew that up this weekend  (fingers crossed).  If anyone knows the link to this piece I would be grateful if you could let me know so that I can link it here and give credit where credit is due.

We are in for a very busy weekend here our Darling youngest Miss E is being baptized on Sunday and we are very excited.  Today is the mammoth clean of the house in preparation for the family coming to lunch after.  Oh and this unorganised mother hasn't bought her gift as yet so a run to the store and then the cook up begins.  Which reminds me to get a move on.

Cherish the gifts you have
Thanks for visiting
