But those are too large for a 12th scale dollhouse, so I got this, a totally cute and very detailed (woven? I cannot tell) piece in two shades of red, pink and white.

Nope not woven, plain old cross stitch on 28 count evenweave. I wish it fit a little better in the frame - meant for a necklace, but when I saw it in the store I thought it would be perfect for this project. Thanks for taking such great pictures - I can never get good ones of tiny stuff.

My package from Watsonc7 got here today, finally! And just in time for an outing tomorrow, the diaper cases are already filled.

The beautiful car trash bag is probably going to end up in my craft room, because there is never enough floor space for a trash can and it is much too pretty for our old car!


I love the fabrics! The little houses and shops are for me, DH was supposed to get the green/brown fabric (the look he gave me when I started to explain had me rephrase that from "one for me, one for you" to "one for Hanna, one for Lea", and he'll mostly need the Lea-one...)


And look at the pretty lining!


Also included was a felt memory game from a private swap, I'll have to put that into the private swap gallery, it is so cute!

Thanks Watsonc7, this was perfect again!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I have been so far behind on checking out all the mighty fine gifts everyone has been receiving.

Lindyv321 TOTALLY spoiled me! I have been DYING for one of her bracelets and she sent me two! One of them is a beach them, which I am so excited about and the other has cute little skulls on it. One for my beach personality and one for my cowgirl personality. I didn't get good pics, so Lindy, if you have close ups, please show them off.


Next, I got this adorable little bird! She is going up in my office to brighten my day. I LOVE this eye glass case. It is now carrying my reading glasses. So stinking cute!


Thank you so much again! I love EVERYTHING!  Kiss

I am glad you liked your package!  I was so disappointed when the hoopla I originally made got ruined and I had to quick come up with some new ideas hence the sassy bird and glasses case.

Here are some close ups of the bracelets:


I had a hard time sending this one away!  I wanted to keep it for myself!

Lindy--the bracelets are wonderful...and that birdie hoop is a cute replacement for your poor damaged piece (were you able to save it at all?)....love the bunny case....perfect for reading glasses!

The few things I tried to do to save it didn't work... I ended up just trashing it.  I am now going to test ALL thread before I stitch with it on light fabric though so I don't have the same problem again.

texscrapper claimed me for a dog bath apron.  I was going to save it for my daughter's Easter basket but about an hour after the mail came, Tara was talking about giving Runt a bath and I couldn't resist going ahead and giving it to her.  She's living at home while she finishes her masters so I'm used to seeing her come dripping out of the bathroom after doggie bath time.  She's a teeny little lady so the apron was perfect for covering her neck to toe.  It worked like a charm!




Summer also sent a big bag of buttons for my stash!!!  I love buttons so much.  I took a picture of my favorites; this is only about half of the buttons she sent.



Thanks so much Summer!
