Mother's Day Gift

If you've been reading you know that I started my mothers' day gift the Sunday before mothers day and finished the stitching in time (in two days!). Once I finished the stitching part I went to find a frame. I couldn't really find anything square that I liked and would go well in my parents house so I decided to bite the bullet and pay to get it custom framed. Was it worth the cost? I don't know, but it does look really nice. :)

I really should stop taking pictures with my cell phone and take out the DSLR. The best camera is the one you have with you... even though I'm at home, with access to my nice one. Eh. Next time. :)

I gave it to her yesterday and she really liked it, just as I thought she would.

I started a Little House Needleworks design, Gingerbread Cookie. It was suppose to be my May ornament of the month, clearly I didn't get it done in time. I'll just have to finish 2 this month so I can get caught up. It's possible! Maybe I'll find a really small one to do after I finish this one. I'm going to search etsy and hopefully find something kinda nerdy! :)

I also decided that I just had to join the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's Mysterious Halloween Town Club. I am quite excited about this!!! It'll be my first mystery club! I was going to purchase the Cosmo floss called for, but the total was like $20 (because of shipping from Canada and I couldn't find it locally) and I can't really justify that when I only needed to buy 2 of the DMC alternatives.... I made an order on 123stitch for the 2 DMC & the 4 overdyed floss and some misc floss I needed for various projects (to justify the shipping cost of course!). The first part starts on June 17th and it goes for 4 parts. The last of which will be released on September 18th. Anyone interested in joining me in a SAL?

I think I've already settled on my fabric. It's called Tempest which was my first fabric from Steph's fabric of the month club, it's a really nice light plum-ish shade of purple. I'll do a floss toss as soon as everything comes in so you can see what it looks like. You never know, I could change my mind between now and the 17th, but I'm pretty sure it'll coordinate well. And since I have so much fabric I really didn't want to have to buy more..... At least that's what I'm telling myself! ;)

Have you ever done a mystery sampler?!?!
