Happiness is cross stitch

Happy Freakin' Friday night update


First up is my new start of "Never Let You Go"

by Heartstring Samplery
I gave the 35ct cream linen a coffee bath, I love how it turned out, perfecto!

Next up I received my pre-stitch supplies from Jan at Tree of Life Samplings
for the retreat pieces that is being held in June, can't wait
I stitched the needlebook and the FOB pieces, there is still a pin cushion I need to pre stitch, love the colors
I stitched my bird black instead of the called for pomegranate color, if anyone noticed




I received my Prim Sisters kit from Country Sampler
This time it's a Primitive Betty's design, love the bunnies






I also received my Lizzie Kate "Birdz & Bugz limited edition kit


I believe it's a stitcher's wallet or the like

Since alot of you loved the "Witches Hollow" WIP

Here are some up close snaps for better detail








Oppsies! I missed a few pictures, Sorry! this is all you get for now


Kellie went to prom this year


That's it for this stay at home Friday night.

Off to stitch a little before the bed bugs bite, lol

Good Night!!!


P.S. Happy Mother's Day

I hope it is a blessed day for all you mom's

Like the witchy piece - very cool. I have seen the E.C. Wave piece - she taught our guild here and I took a different class but many finished the Wave piece. Really cool. Love the needlebook "prim" piece - may have to put that on my list!

Prom goers look so beautiful/handsome. Sure they had a great time!
