Just stuff

Hello!  I have been very busy lately and just hadn't felt like blogging.  And my mom had back surgery yesterday and she is home today, so I have my hands full.

Here are a few things...

My version of the Diamond O Chain by Bead Origami, with a matching bracelet.
Some new beads.  15/0 beads in silver and gold, diamond duo beads in gold and silver, crystal Capri O beads, 3 mm white and rose Swarovski pearls, and some chatons in crystal ab.
And a new start.  Happy Halloween by Kit and Bixby.

We bought a new couch a couple weeks ago and we love it!  It is a light gray and both ends are power recliners.  It is SO comfortable!  This picture was taken at the furniture store.
I have a couple stitch finishes that I will post soon.

I hope everyone is well!  Bye!~~~

Another finish and another find

I don't think I  have shown this finish. I finished it in February, I think.
The chart came with the fabric and it is stitched with DMC.
This was a freebie from Danybrod I stitched in February with some Dinky Dyes silks.
And another find!  I had been wanting to straighten up the craft side of my bedroom and found this in a used furniture store.  Solid wood in 2 pieces and look at all the drawers!

Did some baking yesterday.  Oatmeal cranberry with white wheat flour.  OMG so good!
Spring is almost here!  We will have 60+ degrees the next 2 weeks or so.  Yay!

I am on instagram now - rosystitches.  I don't know how to use it very well yet, so any advice, tips, or tricks are most welcome!

Thanks for stopping by!  Take care!
