First is a pic of everything but this scissors and those are below. And the Just Cross Stitch magazine was bought at Joann's later in the weekend!
These are just the cutest scissors that I found at Stitch and Frame and I am an avid scissor collector. They only had two pair so Polly and I ended up with these!
This is Plum Street Samplers Sergei with all the DMC and fabric. They had the model done up and it was just so neat! I had to have this one. Polly keeps telling me I am on a bird kick.....could she be right?
Lastly it's A Sheltering Tree by All Throught the Night - I got the fabric and Yvonne and I picked out a thread and I actually got a little stitching done on this one. Just love this design and can't wait to get it finished up but all those leaves could take a bit! This one will be my February Challenge piece so I best get busy!
Next we have gifts -
This is the pile with most of the gifties! I just love everything!
First off is Cathy's package!
She got us all this neat little box and it is just great for stitching bits we need, scissors, etc! She also got us a VB tape measure! The L book is a booklet with loads of post it notes! Cathy also had the boxes filled with Valentine candies and it was so neat. She also gave us a candle but I left that one at home and didn't get a picture. Thanks Cathy, just love it!
Next we have Yvonne.....
She stitches us all the neatest needle tins! I was carrying my snowman one she had given me for Christmas one year and she said now I wouldn't have to carry the snowman one all year! Just love it! Yvonne is so talented!
Next is Polly -
She stitched us up the adorable little box and the little paint can style container, made floss tag ring with our initials and also had a little plastic storage bin that will be great for stitching odds and ends! Oops, she also included Valentine socks and I forgot to bring them to take pic!
I just LOVE all the goodies from my great friends! Can't wait to use them and display them!
I also need to show you my January Challenge piece that is completed - I did LHN Singing the Blues twice, over 2 and then over 1. I am going to make the over 2 into a cube and the over one into a pinkeep, just gotta get it done.
It's amazing to me the difference in the over one and the over two!
Well I guess that's enough for a bit! Just wanted to share my goodies!
Thanks to my besties for a great weekend and great gifties! Love ya'll!
