Wrapping Up

 Just a little bit more about Chaparral in Houston.  I got this beaded trim which I am going to have the finisher wrap around some gold Kreinik for the cording.  Luscious, right?


Melissa Shirley's XOXO Heart with guide by me
 And Glinda herself.  Carolyn is so fast.  I think I have all of the stitches and most of the threads selected for her.   Now just need to get to it.

And sweetest of all, Carolyn gave everyone there this cute little swan in honor of our visit.  You could keep needles or orts in it.  I choose to put my allotment of M&M's in there.  

Sweet Swan




Did I mention that I got two more chapters for my Amy cookbook?

  1. The whole thing sounds fabulous! I have just 1 question, how do you allot M&M's?

    1. It is with great difficulty and many failed attempts that I try to to control my M&M intake!

  2. My allotment of M&M's is never the same. Every day there is a reason for more. Like now sitting in the Dentist chair waiting for him to walk in. A whole bag kind of day.

  3. Been away for a few weeks and just now catching up on my blogs. What an awesome trip you must have had to Chaparrel!! I think I need to move to Texas (for lots of reasons :). Love the way your heart turned out and Glinda is a beautiful canvas.

    I finished the stitching on my J'taime heart and need to do the beading now. Might be a while before I get to the next one as I have the new Tudor canvas coming soon. (not even close to finishing my house but......couldn't resist).
