Happy Camper

It's Monday!!!!
"Happy Camper" by Raise the Roof Designs
Just a scrap piece of blue fabric with GA threads and Just Another Button Company buttons
If you are interested in this chart, let me know in the comments and I will draw a name
This is where I am with Witches Nine. I started the bottom border last night, I pretty sure that will involve many hours as it is slow going

I heard from Marjorie that she received my Blogoversary package this week.

Bent Creek designs. I think it may be called Boo Name Tag????

I was going to start Prairie Moon's "The Crypt Club" and notice it takes Belle Soie Silks. I tried the DMC floss toss and it's not anything like the silks. I don't want to make the investment on the silks right now, so it will go back in the draw. Darn it! I wish I would have seen that, oh well!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate the comments.

Tata for now

Cute finishes. Love that witches Nine. Too bad about the silk. They are so expensive! I just spend a couple hundred on NPI silks last week. Ouch!

Happy Camper is adorable. And I love how the witchy piece is shaping up.

Those hand-dyed flosses are killing us! So pretty, but so expensive.

I love Witches Nine! Very, very cute. I am a silk snob myself, but the cost is definitely a punch in the gut!

Ove your Witches Nine...can't believe halloween is around the corner.

The fireflies in the jar button is too cute! I think I will need to get one of these just to have.

Great finishes. I love the Witches Nine and can't wait to see it done. Keep working on trying to match the NPIs. Maybe you can google for a conversion chart.

Happy camper is such a fun finish, i love the little face button

I love you Happy Camper finish, very cute. Great progress on Witches Nine. Too bad about the silks. I know the few I needed cost me a fortune. I also found the DMC conversion didn't look quite right.

Witches Nine is really coming along... Love BOAF!!

Love the package you sent out, too. Have a great week!!

Super cute finishes! That Happy Camper piece is too cute. I should do it in memory of the camping trips we took as kids. Love your Witches Nine, too. That reminds me of my stack of Halloween pieces I always plan to do--that's at the top of the heap! :) Enjoy the last few weeks of summer.

Your finishes are lovely. Silks are truly PRICY and you get so little besides.
