Sweet Bee Box

Lots of stitching at the beach allowed me to make some serious progress on my little box for momma.  
I added the bunny and flower to the bottom for a sweet surprise.  I might even finish tonight.

From Carolyn Baird
I got the diagrams for the bunny and flower from Carolyn's Merry Easter Eggs book.  It is a wonderful resource.

My kind of binging

I went to Joann's for some DMC but went ribbon binging instead.  All of these were a buck a piece except the plaid on the end.  That was 50% off.  I can't wait to see where this will all end up.

I see possibilities already!

Where I started

Where I ended
 After storming City Hall Thursday morning, I settled in for some cross stitching on my Village of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings.  Almost finished with block 6 of 12.

Wednesdays at The Needle Works are always fun with the Swans.  What a way to get reinspired.

Still trying to get that stitching mojo back

Painted Pony Halloween Angel
 I stitched the under brim of her hat.  I would like to try some form of the crescent stitch for the tip of the hat.  I would also like to find a little buckle for the hat.  I'm going shopping.

The Village at Hawk Run Hollow
I filled in the fireplace, the smoke from the chimney and started the horseshoes.  Waiting to get my decorative stitching form back!

The White House

LHO stitched the White House by Squiggee.  I believe the stitch guide was in Needlepoint Now.  Isn't it wonderful?  Finishing by Kim Hollifield.

Donkey from Heartstring Nativity
I haven't stitched in so long that I couldn't find anything.  Pulled him out and started the background in some floss.
