I was rooting through my cross stitch drawer the other day and was surprised at how many stitched pieces I have waiting to be finished.  I decided to finish this JBW design off as an ornament:

My best news of the day is that I finished the cross stitch for my Grammie's birthday!  Well, finished it as much as I am going to!

I have said before that this was not an easy piece for me.  Sometimes you just have those I think.  I love the entire design - so cute, and it made me want to stitch it for my Grammie right away.  However, it has just taken too long and I didn't really enjoy it at all.  So I'm hoping it looks OK as is: I'll have a better idea when I find a frame for it.
This is what the design is supposed to look like:

I just don't have the stomach to start the other two motifs!  Since I am definitely not going to stitch it ever again(!), I am going to gift it away.  If there are any stitchers out there who would like this chart, leave me a comment.  I will happily send it anywhere!  If  more than one person wants it I'll draw names.

And finally, an early Mothers Day gift for me.  Actually I just bought it for myself today because I liked it.  I attended the local pottery guild's sale today and purchased this necklace:

The colors are pale blues, greens and yellows.  There were lots of lovely dishes there, but at the moment I have no room for more dishes.  There is always room for jewelry though!
Have a great weekend, and to all the Mums out there I hope you have a beautiful Mothers Day tomorrow!

Love the ornament! I think your bird piece is fine just the way it is :o) You don't have to always follow directions.

Beautiful necklace. Glad you had a nice Mother's Day :o)

Jenn, can you email me? I don't have your email address and you had some questions for me. Thanks!

I think that bird motive is very beautiful, so I would be really pleased, if I'd have a change to get it - if you would send it to Finland, where I live...

You have a beautiful blog here. I surely will visit here later, too.
