Surprises Past and Future

First of all I'm happy to report that the little care package I sent to Kaye at Kitten Stitching has been received! Kaye's been going through some hard times recently and I thought I'd show her a little love this holiday season (I'm using her pictures because I've apparently lost the ability to take pictures of things before I send them off! Urgh).

I stitched a teeny tiny biscornu on 18-count Aida with DMC 4130 and 797. I knew Kaye collects thimbles, so I sent her one from Dubai and one from Germany. I added some small charts, a couple of needles, and floss from the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe.

My second bit of news: a finish! I found this adorable freebie on Cross Stitch Happy.

I finished it off as a stuffed ornament, with lace and a fabric that has what looks like buttons on it.

I've got big plans for this cutie, so stay tuned!

Happy xxx's,
