A new start..a finish and more...lots of pictures....

There are lots of pictures in this post. Let me start by saying that I started and finished a piece this week!!!!! Actually I started it on the 29th of April and finished on the 4th of May. I meant to post the start separately but here they both are and the finish . It is supposed to be finished as a pinkeep and came with all of the supplies to do it. Oh and it's name is Pink Dress from Mary Kathryn at ehandcrafts. It was a joy to work on!!!
I never did post my framed Shepard's Bush so here is Fear Not .


We did really well in our bowling league this year coming in 4th!!!! I took my winnings and got some really cool things. First up is a necklace that I had on layaway since a little while after my surgery sort of my gift to myself for having the surgery and coming out strong......the picture isn't that great. I love it!!!! and next is a pair scissors that I've had my eye on for a few months.......Sajou scissors!!!! They are shaped like the Eiffel Tower and are so incredibly sharp!!!! drumroll please....... aren't they lovely!


Yes I have still more to post..... I posted that I won a contest on the Mirabilia Stitchers board and I received my prize from Sparklies last week hand dyed fabric and threads.... and . I have to say that Kate from Sparklies was wonderful and so very nice. I have plans for the thread! My first ever Little House Needleworks designs..... and They are monochromatic designs and I'm deciding on the fabric tomorrow I have it narrowed down to 2 or 3 pieces including my Silkweaver FOTM from this month. So much to do. And with any luck my HAED will be in tomorrow at my LNS ....so a new start is in my future and oh wait I have fabric for Fairy Moon as well!!! I'm rambling so I'll end here and getting myself a cup of tea and stitch for a while!

I am grateful for choice in my life..........

  4. Oh, what wonderful things have been going on in your life! Wonderful start and finish, and I'm drooling over your new scissors and linen/threads. Those two designs are gorgeous, and I can't wait to see you stitch them up! You SB finish is adorable, too. :)
