A finish or two!

Hi all


Well these past couple of weeks have been fairly productive! I managed a couple of finishes and worked on 2 of my wip's, received an exchange parcel and went to a craft show with Anne and Alison!

First up here's my purchases from the craft show, it was only a small show and I had a limited budget but still managed to pick up some bargains!
Here's 2 charts from my wish list and some cute scissors for my collection.Here's some ribbon & cording for finishing. Some felt to make scissor pouches for my new scissors, some cute bee finishing fabric, dragonfly charms and Shepherds Bush Halloween needleroll which I got for a good price! I also got a couple of packs of buttons, some small yellow stars and some snowflakes which I forgot to include in the pic!

Here's a pic of the great spring/easter exchange parcel I received from Cheryl (no blog) unfortunately the chocolates which included melted a bit on the treat bag but luckily not on the actual stitching. Chocolates are in the fridge so aren't included in the pic, but they 2 little bees & 2 little ladybugs! Thanks again Cheryl I love it!
Ok now here's my last couple of finishes, one I only finished last night!


JBW Designs - Plum Pudding

28ct tea dyed monaco with DMC & WDW. stitching completed March 14, 2010.

Prairie Schooler 2010 Spring freebie. All colours changed!

Stitched with DMC on 28ct "primitive"hand-dyed linen from silkweavers. Stitching completed March 19, 2010.

In addition to the 2 finishes I also made some good progress on my Ink Circles - Blackstone Fantasy Garden and got a bit more done on Drawn Thread - An Open Heart but I haven't taken pics of them yet. will do that for my next post.

This week I'm planning on doing this month's ornament (yet to be decided exaclty which one it will be) and I hope to make some progress on at least one or more of my other wip's too!

Thanks in advance for looking, I appreciate all your comments.

Happy Stitching

Amanda

Both your finishes look lovely.
I wish we had craft shows around here but there aren't any. I'd love to look around and find all kind of supplies like the ones you purchased. Great new stash!

I love craft shows, they're perfect for picking up stash. Cute finishes too :)
