This weekend is numb butt weekend, lol! IHSW begins tonight! If you don't know what it is, go to Joysze's blog and sign up!
I can't decide what to work on for sure, so here are 3 of my most recent WIPs
Sampler of Psalms
Just Cross Stitch magazine
Renaissance Rose - Joan Elliott
Hummingbird Sparkly Garden
Martina Weber - Chatelaine Designs
I won a giveaway on Julie's blog and look what she sent me!
Not a great picture, but doable. There is a jar of kumquat strawberry preserves, a beautiful stitched pin pillow, 3 skeins of DMC floss, a card with a cute kitty, a tiny blue topaz heart, a large cup full of candy (that's gone now, lol!) and a gift card to Olive Garden, my FAVORITE restaurant of all time! Thanks Julie!!!!!!!!
I have been doing some beading and finished an amulet bag by Suzanne Cooper not too long ago. It's from her book, "Dancing Light" which is now out of print. I was lucky to get this - it's even autographed by Suzanne herself! I want to do all the patterns in this book! I've done several and here is the latest.
Side 2 - bag is made with delicas, bugle beads, red drops, and red, green, and black crystals. The black and red crystals are vintage and I had them in my stash. I also hung a rose charm on each side in the fringe. This was fun to do!! I'm going to start another one soon.
Well, I think that's about it for now. I'm going to a stitch-in tomorrow (YAY!) and should be able to get quite a bit of one of these done.
Take care, be well, and stay cool!
