Newton Law’s Birth Sampler and more.

First of all. I got a very lovely package in the mail 2 days ago from Kirsten the editor of TGOSM. She sent me some beautiful beads and wonderful fabrics. Thanks again Kirsten, I love everything you sent. The image is clickable, as well as all the pictures in this post.

Gift from Kirsten

Yesterday evening my friend Rósa came over and we stitched together. It had been so long since we had had a stitching night just the two of us. It was wonderful to have her over. And very inspiring. I finished two projects last night.
I finished the Newton Law’s Birth Sampler for my boss’s daughter.

I also finished a tiny and oh so adorable biscornu scissor fob for my friend Brenda. I love how this one turned out and decided not to put a button/bead/something in the center to pierce it together since it is so small that I think it wouldn’t come out very nice.

DMC 807 one over one.

And last but not least. Like I have said before, my parents just sold their house and are moving to a brand new apartment. So they had to get rid of lots of stuff. I was lucky to get this beauty! (ignore the piles of stash on top)

Old/New cabinet

My mother used it for all her sewing fabrics, and now I am going to use it for all my stash! Woot! I am so excited. I LOVE organizing my stash, especially if I have something pretty to put it in! I am a sucker for old furniture (especially wood) and I have wanted this cabinet for a long time but off course my mom was always putting it to good use. But when she asked me if I wanted it I was so happy.
I am going to give it a slight make over soon. Nothing drastic though. I still want it looking exactly like it looks, I just want to freshen it up a little 🙂

Thank you all so much for stopping by and reading. Thank you all for the wonderful comments on my latest exchanges. You make this all worth it! *hugs*

    I love what you been doing and the biscornu fob is so beautiful.
    I love the cabinet (er það rétt orð??) I wish I had something like that to keep my stash.

    Æðislega sætt allt saman hjá þér, skærapúðinn litli er ægilega flottur 🙂 pínkulítill.

    Newton er alltaf sætur og þessi mynd er sérstaklega sæt. Skenkurinn er æði, ég er einmitt komin með eina kommóðu sem ég nota undir saumadótið, það er algjört möst, annars er þetta út um allt bara.. Til hamingju með þetta allt 🙂 og takk fyrir afmæliskveðjuna 😀
