Our vacation was a lot of fun! We made it home safely, without too much bad weather. The kids were so good in the car, it was a good trip. I was able to go to a lot of cross stitch and quilting shops while I was there, which of course made me enhance my stash :D I have bought several more patterns and fabrics. I’ll take pictures this week to show them. I do have an update on my Mermaids of the Deep Blue. I worked hard on them on the long drive there and back. Here they be!
I am almost done with the stitching… I would say another 2-4 hours on them, and then I can add the beads. I am sure beading will take a long time, there are so many of them. Isn’t it pretty?
And I hear my exchange for the USEBB Christmas ornament was received… and she loved it! Yes! I was so happy to hear that. I had Seniorita Stitches to make an ornament for. I had a lot of fun doing this. It was my first time making an ornament this way, I used cardboard inside of it. :) I also sent some extra fun goodies. It is by The Workbasket from the JCS 2005 Ornament Magazine.
