In The Confetti Zone

Well, did I tell you I was back into stitching big time?  I actually have a finish!  I spent part of yesterday evening and this afternoon completing "Love", and most of that completion involved the stitching of the dreaded confetti stitches.  Admittedly, those little confetti stitches are very cute on the design, but it's just the positioning of them that gets to us stitchers.  After doing a few, I got into the zone and I was enjoying it a little!  I "love" this finish!
I'm thinking of making it into a small pillow and displaying it at Valentine's Day.

In my last post, I talked about meeting up with my fellow Sisters In Stitches for a very pleasant Stitch Day.  I forgot to show you what Pat, a member of our group, gave to each of us.  We all received a beautiful handmade scissor fob.  Each one was different.  Mine has a little cat charm on the end because, as you know, three cats live in our house. 
Isn't it pretty?  I also like the way she packaged them for us, in a little bag with our names on a created-for-us tag.  Makes you feel special when you get a gift like this, doesn't it? 

I'm also embarking on something in the stitch world that I've never done before - a mystery sampler.  I just ordered Little House Needleworks' "Song Of The Seasons Sampler".  My biggest fear about doing these is that I won't like the finished product, but I'm a big fan of LHN so it will most likely be lovely.  So I'm taking the plunge.  I ordered it from Stitch And Frog, which is a great place to order stitchy stuff from. 

Thank you for all of your kind comments on my blog.  I appreciate every one of them.  And welcome to my new followers!
