I will be
when I get through
both layers of chocolates!
don't let me eat chocolates by myself...
go on out
and buy yourself
a 12 oz box of Whitman's.
The Whitman's Sampler,
a collection of assorted chocolates...
And while your sinking your teeth
into the chocolatey nugget,
take a look at the lid of the box...
A basket of flowers, the bluebirds in the corners,
the wavy cross stitched border...
they are done in tiny little cross stitches!
when you've consumed the whole box of chocolates,
DO NOT THROW THE BOX AWAY.
we are going to
repurpose the box
into another stitching ditty!
Watch for a future
cross stitch design
using the empty box...
will keep you posted.
It's going to be special...
The idea is in it's early stages,
just some scribbles in the sketch pad.

SAMPLER CHARM BROOCHES...
These are so small & sweet!
They feature tiny little photo pendants (1/2" - less then an inch)
of antique samplers.
Tiny little charms and natural beads
are carefully attached
and all hang
from a brooch
that measures less then 2" across.
They make such a cute clanging noise
when you wear them...
reminds me of my charm bracelet days!
I'm in the process of working on this collection.
Hoping to have 4 or 5 brooch choices to start with.
More info on these to follow.
I now have stork charms,
more floss keeps will be coming!
Happy Thursday Everyone...
we are having a mix of rain/wet heavy snow today,
