Happy St. Patrick's Day

 Here is my latest design finished. I still need to finish it off. It will be an ornament done flat or as a pin keep. I got it from the blog Happiness is cross stitching.

 This is a wip kit I have had for awhile and started a few years ago. I have made some progress on it. Sure is a beautiful wolf. I hope to finish her this month.
 Sorry for the side photo. Not sure what happened. This is from Jerimiah Junctions magazine Cross County Stitching. I plan to finish this on a eooden box top. I will have more info on ,y designs next time.....
 Jim and I went to half price books today . we each had a half off coupon. I was blessed to find some very nice patterns.
 This book has some great stuff in it. I have a lot of Helems books. Each gift has a small cross stitch motif on them.
 I just love this little guy.
 I really like LHN patterns. This will be a nice quick stitch.
 Isn't she cute ...I have another one of these during a different season.
 I can hardly wait to start sewing me some of these. The apron on the front reminds me of a denim jacket my ,mom dressed up with rose appliques. Wish I still had that coat. It was really cool. Anyhoo...there are some French country aprons I can't wait to make. They have pretty ruffles on them.
 This is my second favorite chart I found on sale. I love their designs .:-)

 And here is my favorite acquisition ......Rosewood Manor "Watch Over Me" Karen Kluba is the nicest person and such an amazing designer. All of her charts are based on quilts.
Jim thank you for spoiling me rotten. You treat me like a princess. I love you with all my heart. And thank you God for blessing me with a love of needlework  and an amazingly awesome husband.:-)

My half off coupon went to purchase a $42 paper/fabric cutter by Fiskars and it was half off that  because everything is at least half off original price there..hence the name....that brought it to $21 then half off with my coupon... We paid $10 and some change.
