IHSW stitching +
Olay in Turkey. I ordered a few and even another shape so have lots to use now. It matches the copper tail very well, even better in person and now this cute little Gingerbread Mouse is ready for Christmas, when it gets here!! Check out her Etsy shop sometime as she has some lovely items.
Meant to show you this little cutie by Lynn at her blog. She has some really nice patterns and some freebies of which this is one. I added beading on the edges as she teaches, and also in the present and the hat. I used Swarovski crystals at the ends of the tassels. She also has some great tutorials for finishing. I completed this one in January this year.
Well, I have been reading over so many posts by people on their blogs and so many wonderful pieces being stitched. Congrats all! I am slowly getting back into stitching and this is okay. Time for Spring cleaning early then. My hand is doing okay with the shots I had and the thumb is booked for release surgery on March 19th. I am looking forward to this as it is an easy and quick thing and will help immensely, permanent compared to a shot. Happy stitching everyone and just think only about 4 weeks until Spring! :)
