Some new finishes.....

 This very sweet design by Karen Kluba of Rosewood Manor was a joy to stitch but it was also one of those you say "woohoo" when it's finished.  I love how it turned out using Nina's threads and fabric and I will be sure to use more of her creations.  Thank you Nina for dyeing such beautiful threads and such glorious fabrics to use them on.
This is one of the newest by Blackbird Designs and this one I loved stitching...but then I've never stitched one of their designs I didn't love.  I dare anyone to come up with one.  I dug into my stash of buttons and found 3 matching mother of pearl square buttons....they weren't what I was looking for but I think they work pretty well.
I have a very sweet friend who's birthday is coming up towards the end of this month and every year she really makes me think about what to make her.  Well this year I think I'm going to blow her away.  LOL  Hey Rhonda.....curious yet????  Of course I can't post any pictures of the finished product until after her "Me" day, but I will throw out hints every so often just to keep her guessing.  I know......I know.....paybacks can be the very devil but I'm really going to enjoy the next few days.  
Blessings as always,
Barbara
