Stitching, originally uploaded by jenib320.
I've been slowly stitching away at the cocoa mug, and thanks to Christina reminding me to use a blunt needle, it's coming along a lot better! I picked up the super cute truffle gang pattern from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery yesterday! I'm going to stitch it up for Michael's v-day card I think! :)

This sweet papercut made by Crystal arrived this week! I can't wait to pick up a frame for this beauty, and to choose the perfect vintage sheet to use as a backdrop! This pink and orange one is definitely in the running! Crystal just opened up a sweet little etsy shop if you'd like one of your own! :)

  4. I want to come live next door to you! Everything is so colorful!!!

    ps the stuffed cat is on my bed & Chop thinks its hilarious AWESOME!!! thank you!!!!

  5. Wow, so much good stuff in one post. People who do counted cross-stitch continue to amaze me. You are extremely gifted. Your hexagons are so perfect, it looks like you've been doing them for ages. I was a bit scared for you when I saw that lovely stack of vintage linens, but since many of them are in the shop your stash won't grow too much. Your favorite print has a nice tight pattern that will look great in one of your quilts. Thanks for brightening this dark morniing!

  6. love the Valentine's cross-stitch and I would love to make it into a card are you going to do that?

  7. I noticed the daylight is getting longer too. So nice!

  8. You have inspired a love for vintage linens....Could you share info on identifying them ...fiber content, how u wash them,etc.
    Thanks, Pam
