A small Easter finish and an update WIP

Hi,

I have a small little finish for the week.  It was a free design by Aury-Tm that is no longer available.  It is called Easter Quaker and was a fun stitch.  I made it into a ornament without a hanger to put in my basket.

I have also made progress on the Quaker.

I was also able to get a few goodies this week.  2 button packs and some floss from Hancock Fabrics.  A hard cover Cross Stitch book (can't remember the name) for $1 at the thrift store and Cricket Collection 201- Falling Snow.  Can't wait to start that Turkey mitten.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

2 new finishes and a WIP

Happy Spring,
I am just loving this weather.  High's in the low 70's in March, can't beat that.

Well my first finish is Part 3 of Oakhaven Designs.  I decided to take the hat off. 

My second finish is Spring by Sanman Originals that was PIF to me.  I decided to make it into a small pillow for my basket.  Fabric is 14ct Aida by Enchanted Fabrics.  I sure do miss them.

Lastly, is my WIP.  I am getting my motivation, I really need to finish so I can start on my sister's present.
See you next week.

Some finishes for 2012

Well I finally got a camera so I could update some finishes.  It sure feels good to take pictures again.  It gives me a chance to see how much I have accomplished in the last 3 months.

The first one is 2012 OHD SAL Jan.  I am making each months installment an ornament again this year. 

The second is the Feburary installment of 2012 OHD Sal.
I love seasonal stitching especially Valentine's Day.  Here is Valentine's Blackwork for Sanman Originals board members only.  I made it into a small pillow for my display.
Here is a Halloween Owl biscornu I bought from the Floss Box.  I can't remember the number.  I love it.
And lastly, I framed this for my husband's Saint's room.  I think I bought it from Arcadian Corner in Metarie, Louisana.  He loved it.
Sorry about the glare.

Thanks,
Mary
