Finished and ready for Merry's class! Please click on the pic for a closeup. This is tinier work than I am used to. Now I am going to start Merry's So Dear to Thy Heart.
Crazy January Challenge #9-Smell the Flowers
Called for DMC threads
This is tiny work too! I just put the first few stitches into the little girl on the left flap.
After much thought, I have decided not to participate in future CJC's. There is so much I would like to do each year-surprise SAL's, new designs, etc. But I feel obligated to keep working on the CJC's I picked in January. Don't get me wrong, I still love the designs I chose, but I'd like to be able to change my mind!! lol
I do love Natalie's work (L'Atelier Perdu) and I signed up for her mystery SAL that is starting this coming week. It will be 4 months long with one installment each month. I participated in the Stitch Me Club in 2011 and absolutely loved the result. See below-
OK, admit it-who else has signed up? I know Chiara did.
I haven't posted for awhile about Bountiful Baskets. I picked one up yesterday and this is my haul. It cost $15 plus $1.50 for handling. I am consistently pleased with the quantity, quality, and variety of the fruits and vegetables I get. You can click on the pic to get a better view. Here is a link to see if it is in your area. Then, click on Locations at the top, then use the states drop-down menu.
