Ghiradelli is just about my favorite chocolate and for the price , it was just begging to come home with me! Anyone know if this freezes well? I was thinking about going and getting more and sticking it in the freezer. Yeah ,right, like it would stay there!!LOL!
Linda let me know that her Easter exchange arrived that I sent her. I forgot to take a picture so I swiped her's. You don't mind do you Linda? Anyway , I found the cuttest roll of ribbon that said "hippity hop, hippity hop, Easter's on it's way". I just had to send that. It was just too cute. I also sent along a piece of opalescent evenweave that I thought she might use for something. Do you recognize the little "peep" scissor fob? I decided to send it to her along with some cute little ladybug and daisy stickers. I stitched a little hanging pillow from Lizzie*Kate titled "Hop Squared",on 28 count pink Silkweavers linen using DMC and Weeks.I used Rainbow Gallery whisper for the tails to make them fuzzy. I finished it off on the back with pink and white gingham and the hanger is a cute little Easter Egg rick-rack. I don't stitch many Lizzie*Kate designs but this one I HAD to do.
April also let me know that she recieved the Winter House 2010 exchange that I sent. I stitched a little house from Pine Mountain and then the snowflake came from a Bent Creek design. I stitched it on 28 count natural linen using DMC, Rainbow Gallery linen floss, Needle Necessities overdyed floss ( now Threadworx) . I added on cute little snowflake and star buttons, then added a Mill Hill snowflake charm. I finished it into a scissor pocket and April has told me that it is already holding a pair of her embroidery scissors so I am happy as a clam. : )
This last picture is of our sweet little "new baby" Cassie. Isn't she just adorable?! She's an Aussiedor. We have had her a few weeks but I just kept forgetting to post a picture of her. She and Brittney get along just fine except for feeding time! LOL . We usually bring her in and feed her. She is soooo easy to train. She has learned fetch, sit, and lay on command already. It only took a day to teach each thing. As a matter of fact , it only took a few tries to get her to sit on command. She is very very smart.
