IHSW and a bunch of other stuff!

Hello everyone and welcome to my newest followers!  I'm so glad you're here!

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 1
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!

Eskie smiles,
