I had even forgotten some of the things I had ordered so they were like a surprise present. I was prompted to order a couple of these things when I saw them on ebay and thought they looked cute. So I went to the site and found some other interesting stuff. I thought about it for a while and in a weak moment, I went back and ordered it. I got a book on Berlin work and some silk gauze::
I got a couple of other kits:
I saw the hydrangea done on the silk gauze and I really want to do that. A while back I had stitched a monochomatic design on 32 gauze and it turned out well (well enough to frame). So I am game to try it again. If I was really brave, I would have ordered the 40 count gauze.
Then I got a partial order of my silks for Victorian Painted Lady and a Just Nan Limited Edition kit. Fun!
So of course, I had to start the new little kit. Then it dawned on me that the little mouse I am making would be a darling ornament for Claire. So I may make a couple of these, hoping I can fashion a tail and find a suitable button for the bottom. I am finished with the stitching part and can put it together today.
I only got this far on the ribbon edging of the Cherished Stitches Limited Edition thread wallet.
I am sewing each side of the ribbon by hand. It is only slightly tedious.
Lots of new fun stuff to stitch. I am a lucky duck.
