It is hard to get a photo that shows the stitching and beads properly - it's so sparkly! This is the best I could do at toning down the sparkle. Lots of fun to make!

I love rescuing bits of stitching from the thrift stores - my latest find was a really lovely petit point rose.

Icy Crystal Advent Calendar using a wonderful freebie from Mr. Printables. My colour ink cartridge was almost empty so I didn't get a good printing of the lovely pink, mauve and blue highlights on the crystals but I am happy with them the way they are and I think she will be too. I hope so since it took me the better part of three days to cut these, fold them and assemble them all together.

I picked up a Susan Portra kit at the thrift store awhile back and worked it up but got stalled on the finishing (of course!). With the mailing deadline this week, I finally got motivated. I used a bit of cardboard in the center to give it some oomph and then used buttonhole stitch to attach a blue wool felt backing to the canvas. It turned out quite well and I am pleased with it. Canvaswork is not something I have done a lot of and it was great fun!
