Weekly update

I've devoted most of my stitching to my new model for Little House Needleworks and thankfully I finished it earlier this week and got it off in the mail. I know Diane has received so I can really breathe now. My biggest fear is that the post office would lose it, so I'm always nervous till I know it's safely where it belongs.

I was able to attack my own stitching with a vengeance and made quite a bit of progress. I really wanted to have "a finish" so I decided on this cute little ornament, Sammy Snowcone by Michelle Lutzen. I finished it with these wonderful beads I had in my stash which at the moment I can't even remember where I got them from. They're a bit larger than the usual glass bead but I love how this came out.

As you can see I liked them enough to finish another ornament, Faith Hope Peace which I stitched back in late December of 2010.
As part of Valentine's Day I painted these little wooden boxes for my kids which I filled with candy...Jelly Belly for my daughter and See's Candies for my son. My daughter is a collector of Wonder Women items so I couldn't resist getting her this little cutie.
I got these from my generous, loving husband.

It is totally darling Milly, both finishes, are cute as buttons :)
And I'm a background lurker and I loved seeing your finishes hung on the wall over your daughter's shoulder :)

Both ornaments are adorable, Millie, and the beads just "make" them. Great idea! I love the candy boxes as well and where on earth do you find Wonder Woman anything these days? The Valentine roses are beautiful - that guy is something special, Mils. Oh, and like Vonna, I'm a background lurker (LOL), and I noticed your finished pieces on the wall. Very nice touch, dear one!
