Stitching & Stuff

I can't add pictures yet, but I've finished and mailed my first squares to Jenn for the Fair and Square exchange. Not to worry, I will post piccies once Jenn receives her exchange. :P

*hmm* Which round to sign up for next? hee

I've gotten a few bits of stash, patterns by Little House Needleworks. And I'm expecting some more stash from 123 Stitch that will include a pattern from Elizabeth's Designs. I love the houses and cottages from both of these designers and I can't wait to stitch them.

The stash coming is the flossies for the Sisterhood chart I mentioned in my last post. My fabbie is coming from Sparklies in the UK. This is the first time I've ordered from the company, but I enjoy chatting with her on the cross stitch message boards. She's been a pleasure to order from, absolutely keeps me in the loop of what's going on with my order.

I've received my order from Fire Mountain Gems. Now I can get some jewelry made that's been ordered for Christmas gifts.

The set will look similar to the set I made to donate to our Home Hardware Ladies Night benefitting Canadian Breast Cancer Society. Except the pick stones will be darker. The single necklace will be silver, black, and grey and suitable for a guy.

Necklace, bracelet and earrings. Silver chain, crystal cubes, white pearls, rose quartz chips.

Isn't Fire Mountain great. I love their catalogue - it has everything.
