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!
