Im so behind on posting so this is going to be a mixture of xs and thrift shop buys.  If you have any questions, please email me or put them in the comments area on here.  Thanks for looking 🙂

I collect the white jars that used to hold facial cream.  The old bed spring makes a good flower/vase holder. Up the other way you can put an old hankie in it in a cone shape. The beautiful doll pincushion was a gift from Sharon as well as the tiny sunflower pincushion and the lower right white jar.  The basket was from an antique shop and it seems brand new and was a great price even with the signature.  All pictures are clickable for enlarging.

Thanks again for looking 🙂  Seems pictures and wording won’t go together today!  I’ve tried everything, but it’s still probably operator error. LOL

Awhile back I took some xs pieces over to my frame closet in our storage trailer and matched most of them up with frames.  I’m just now getting in the framing mood and have an update.  As always, thanks so much for taking time to check these out.  🙂

 This one-color piece actually has a lot more to it.  There is a beautiful huge mermaid, but I got tired of messing with it and thought this was a good stopping point.  It’s on 16 ct. hand-dyed fabric that is just gorgeous in person.

This is from the Grand Canyon kit I got while on vacation there in 2007.  Below this update is a closer picture of it.

This is Love Birds and San-Man Rose.  I love these frames and knew they would come in handy one day!  I buy them when I see them instead of wishing I had later LOL

 LK Spring ABCs was a fun piece to xs,

 Twas the night… by JBW.  This is one of several adorable charts in this series.  I decided to frame this instead of make into a tree ornie.

In October, 2007, we went to the Grand Canyon.  I got this kit there. We had the best vacation ever and went to many other place besides the Grand Canyon.  This has been a UFO for quite awhile and recently I made myself finish it.  It’s totally xs with many MANY color changes.

Can’t remember title of this piece, but it was fun to xs.

A Bride’s Tree Ornie, but I xs’d it because I love things with pinecones.

This is by JBW and comes with other charts, too.

This is a bd card I xs’ed for my best friend, Bobbie Sue, from Louisiana.  We have been friends for 45 or so years.  Thanks for looking 🙂  I couldn’t get the typing beside the right pictures.  Just read down – ackkkkk
