Bracelet #2 Done

I put Bracelet #2 together.  I was afraid that it would be too clunky for my taste but it is fine.
Try not to notice the dry wrinkled skin.
 I like it.  I didn't do it completely right as I ran out of rings and I put the crystal cross on the wrong back but it doesn't matter.  I didn't think I could cross stitch with it on as it might catch on my thread or fabric but it is no problem.  I like that it has buttons on it.  My favorite charm is the crown.

I finished stitching the thread wallet in the Cherished Stitches Limited Edition kit.  I looked up all the parts to finishing it.  I'd like to get that done today.

I realized that I didn't finish the Christmas ornaments that I made for Claire.  I'd better do that.  I would like to stitch a couple more just to see which one I like best.  We have begun looking for things for Claire for Christmas.  What fun to have a baby to shop for!  I can "overshop" a bit as she has a birthday in January.  She is a little hard to buy for since she has so many toys already and yet an empty box or a tag is such an interesting plaything.  You can never have too many books though.  Unless you have several of the same one like Goodnight Moon.


  1. You are clever - that bracelet looks really pretty. I love the colours on the Cherished Stitches piece and look forward to seeing it completed. Happy shopping. I hate shopping but I do think that little girls are a lot easier to buy for than little boys :-)

  2. such pretty and delightful aids to stitching I think surrounding ourselves with beauty is very important...and these are beautiful. Each one unique and clever and even practical. I don't think it gets any better. Creative Bliss Dear.
