Just a small finish

I made this card for my daughters teacher as a end of the year gift. 
The red piece that the stitching is attached to, is removable, and can be used as a bookmark. 
Here's my little preschool graduate:

I can't believe she's going to kindergarten!!! Where is time going?!

SOR update

Last time I shared (April 30th):

Now:
She now has some more hair. Which is made up almost entirely with confetti!!! Yup... It's been a long road through confettiville. UGH! I'm finally seeing the light. I've only got a quarter of the page left to stitch and it looks like larger chunks of color, not so much confetti. 
Maybe next time I post, I'll have a finish on this page! Let's hope! 
Thanks for stopping by! Happy stitching!!

Thrifty haul!!

I'm super excited about this because this never happens to me! 
So! We went out of town to visit with friends over the weekend. And they know that I love to scour Goodwill for books. I'm a huge reader and I love being able to find great books for super cheap! 
Well after I'd finished pilfering the book aisle, I took a quick gander through the rest, you never know what you might come across. 
So I was about to go past an aisle with just a bunch of random stuff on the aisle when I saw what looked to be two floss boxes stacked on top of each other. I could tell there was something in them, but I was thinking someone probably used it to store beads or fishing lures. 
But I took a closer look anyway. Here's what I found:

Two boxes full of DMC already bobbinated and labeled! And there are some needles and extra bobbins in there as well!! Both these together cost me 7$!!
I could NOT believe it!! 
Anyway. I had a great day at goodwill!! Two boxes of DMC floss and 20 books!! I was so happy with my treasures!

Sea of Roses progress!

Wow! I haven't been around much this month... Been busy with some other things. Had house guests, and bad weather (flooding) that kept My daughter home from school. Errands and appointments, just been busy. 
Plus I am still trying to figure out a good rotation and so I seem to just be picking up whatever I feel like, so when it comes day to post sometimes I feel as if there really isn't much to show, so I just skip it. Just being a bad blogger! 
One project I have seemed to really gravitate towards has been Sea of Roses, so here's progress:
Last time you saw it: (March 5th)

Today:

I have been addicted to this one!! I think she is so pretty!  Just need to finish her nose and an eye and her face is pretty much finished.  
That's about it here. I'm going to try to get back to posting regularly again, but no promises! 
Thank you for reading! I hope you all have a lovely stitch filled week!

Finish number 2 for 2016


I'm really enjoying working on these little snowmen. I'm gonna miss working on them once I'm done with the series. 
This one stitched up super quick. I finished it in 4 days! So now I'm working on DS2N, which I shall share progress of the next time I post! 

Happy stitching!
