That's what I'm going to call Falling Star from now on - because it's really all about the giant umbrella. I've picked it back up and made more minute progress:
Since last we saw it, I've stitched the word "it" on the left and gotten more done on the umbrella. We're at the halfway point! Woohoo!
I also got a lovely surprise in the mail. Ariadne (Ariadne from Greece) won a giveaway from Kim (Wisdom with Needle and Thread) recently, and part of the prize was she got to pick a friend to receive some goodies too. And she picked me! I was thrilled. I just received Kim's package, and look at all the goodies she sent me:
She sent one of her handmade four-leaf clover thread keepers, a bee scissor fob, a couple of adorable cross-stitched gift tags, and some beautiful oil painting prints. Isn't it all lovely? Thanks again, Kim and Ariadne!
Have a great weekend!
