I would like to get a leaf done on the Home Sweet Home box.
By the way, dq, you are listed as "no reply" and the email address I have for you no longer works so I couldn't answer you privately. Sakura is an old Brightneedle design. I saw it on another blog and wanted to stitch it. I wrote to the designer and asked if I could buy it. She didn't have a kit but let my buy the design. I felt lucky to get to make it.
Good mail yesterday. I used one of my Amazon cards to get this book recommended by Mary Corbet.
It's a coloring book. But she is using it as a book of design ideas and is embroidering one of the designs.
I want to follow along and see how she does it.
I also got a needle threader. One side if for small needles, the other side for larger ones.
It was a stocking stuffer idea from Gay Ann Rogers. I love needlework tools.
I pre-ordered the new stumpwork butterflies book from Jane Nicholas and surprise!, it might come today.
Merry Christmas to me.
