Stitching, Stashing, & Shopping



Not necessarily in that order :)


Remember a week or so ago when I realized I could wear size 10 slacks? At the same time, I bought a new beaded watch with a matching bracelet. Normally priced at $55 (Why, I don't know!), and on sale for $20. Is it cool, or what?!




JoAnn Fabrics is having a sale on the Darice beads (40% off) and Favorite Findings Buttons ($1/pkg). I got the star sequins on a whim. All of these cost me less than $3.75! I'm debating whether to use the stars (vs. silver or gold seed beeds) on my March ornie.



I found these goodies at the Goodwill Thrift Store.









I started Rita's RR last night. This is my progress after 1.75 hours. It's called Spring Bluebird by Waxing Moon Designs.

I bought those same star sequins to use on my Princess ornament. And I just stitched up Spring Bluebird a few weeks ago - it was a fast, fun stitch. (I haven't shown pics of it yet because I'm using it as one of my bride's tree ornaments.)
