Froggers, wins, stash, updates, and finishes!

Hello!  Sorry I haven't posted sooner.  Life is busy around here lately and a few days under the weather didn't help any.

(warning- picture heavy post)

I do have a little bead finish.  I made these 2 froggers using cloisonne beads, swarovski crystals, rose quartz beads, and 2 adorable frogs, one in rose quartz, and the other green aventurine.  Aren't they cute?
 I won a giveaway from Kathy over at Gracewood Stitches.  Check out her blog and designs. Both are lovely!  A huge bag of silk flosses, fabric, and a lovely coaster with an Ackworth School design on it.  Yay me!  :-)  Thanks Kathy!!



Last Saturday (March 1) we had a get together at an LNS and here is what I bought.  A needle nanny (bad picture, sorry)
 This wonderful stand at 30% off!

and these charts

I can't get the picture to rotate, sorry.  Actually, it's 2 charts and a kit.  The Periwinkle Promises kit was only $3!

And a finish!  I started this hardanger piece, China Rose by Cindy Valentine, back in 2008 or 2009 and it's finally done!  woo hoo!
 A close up
 I joined an SAL on Facebook for A Christmas Garden by BBD and here is where I am on it.  Loving stitching this one!
 I also started (Last year some time) a reproduction sampler from Scarlet Letter and here is where I am on it.  I was too lazy to take it off of the Q-snaps, sorry, but this is all I've gotten done since the last update.  Loving stitching on this one too!
Look who's feeling better!
We're having great weather, for the time being.  Supposed to get some more of that ugly white stuff on Wednesday,  Ugh!

Take care!~~

Eskie smiles,

Terri
