Puzzling Wednesday 11/15/17

I have another puzzle finish and I would say it is in the "Nick" of time since it is Santa's Toy Bag!

It looks as though a toy or two may have gotten away since two pieces are missing in this puzzle but there are still plenty of toys for all the good little girls and boys.

Toy Bag
Series - Can You See What I See?
Artist - Walter Wick
Piece Count - 1,000
Size 27 x 20
Used Puzzle
First Piece 11/01/17
Last Piece 11/13/17

This puzzle has an added bonus of trying to find certain toys in the bag!
Can you find them? Jacob helped me find some because even though I put the puzzle together, I could not see them! Some are a bit tricky and then of course the picture never comes out great because of the glare.

Thanks for stopping by,
see ya next time!

And remember these words:
Kindness is the greatest beauty that you
can have, so take some time to be kind!

This week I have not one but two quick finishes!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 11/05/17

Welcome Friends!

This week I wanted to share with you a couple of needle minders I made out of things I had laying around on my dresser.

I used to have the pewter Eeyore hanging in my car for a long time and then somehow he ended up in the house. The purple bunny is a pin that my son gave me for Mother's Day.  I didn't think I would ever wear it so I thought this was the perfect use for it.


I think they turned out adorable and I am already using them!

Now for the biggest HAPPY DANCE that I have done in quite a while!

Shades of Blue
is FINISHED!!!!

Shades of Blue
Designer - Northern Expressions Needlework
 
First Stitch 09/07/14
Last Stitch 11/05/17

This finish was a long time coming and I absolutely LOVE it!

Now, I have two more in my ginormous stash Gold and Wine and I would like to start one of these soon; maybe after the holidays. There are nine more in the series so  you know I may have to invest in those "someday" after all there is a Purple one! ha ha

Now to let my fingers do the walking thru my WIP / UFO box again to see what they can find to stitch next!

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!

Kindness is the greatest
beauty that you can have,

My Sunday Stitchy Update 10/29/17

First things first, I had some happy mail this week!

First off I would like to say Thank You to Tiffany over at TiffStitches a blog for the wonderful leaflet she sent to me.  She was clearing out a few things from her stash and she asked if I would like something and I picked...

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas
Days 5 - 8
Designer - The Prairie Schooler
Now I will be hunting for
the other days in the series!

Then I received my order from DMC! I ordered the new colors. Yes, I promised myself I wouldn't but something just came over me and well here they are in my stash!


Here they are in their tin case
which was much larger
than I thought it would be! 
and here they are in all their
beautiful colorful glory!
 Such a wonderful sight!
Now to bobbinate them and put them in my floss cabinet. 


Then I went to pick up the ceramics we painted last weekend.

The pictures show how they looked
before and after they were fired.
