Farm needlepoint - framed

This little farm needlepoint was buried in my stash box. I had finished it years ago but never had a frame. I bought the perfect brand new 6" frame at a thrift store for only $1.

WOCS - Hippopotamus - finished!

I stitched this cute hippopotamus for World of Charity Stitching. They chose animal patterns from The Floss Box to decorate tote bags for children who are staying at a domestic violence shelter. The next one I am stitching will be a raccoon. I'm so glad that I found out about this wonderful group!

A Paris Kiss update #5

I haven't shared this romantic Frenchman for awhile. The stitching is creeping slowly along!


Here is my little jar of ORT (Old Ratty Threads). I don't start a new collection each month like I think Daffycat does ( This is my slowly growing pile of threads. I will keep smashing them down all year long!
