Finishes and Treasures

Hello friends,

Yeah!! I finally have some things to show you all and I finally found something that I have been looking for, since forever ago.
First up is this sweet little pin keep which I am going to save for a RAK.
Next is Remember Me by LHN. I have had this stitched since last year and just got around to finishing it. I decided to attach it with buttons to the little pillow instead of the beads included to sew all the way around it. Who has time for that? Not me! I just love this pattern. It is now on my stitching chair so I can admire whenever I want.
On to the treasures... I finally found myself a frog. I cannot tell you how excited I was when I had this in my hot little hands. I also found this jar of old white buttons which surely will come in handy with all my upcoming projects.

What antique store can I hit next? I've started a list of things I want to look for.

That's all I've got for now. My sewing machine is still not working so I will have lots more to show you later. Stay tuned....

Probably not much stitching this weekend :(
Madison is making her First Communion on Saturday
night and of course, Sunday is Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day Everyone! Enjoy the day!!

Hooray! You're back! It's so nice to hear from you and see your new makes. I love them!!! And congratulations on finding a frog! At a recent retreat, two women had one...very handy! Tell Madison I will be thinking about her and will send her a card tomorrow.
P.S. What is a "RAK"? Love, Erika

Your new finishes are so pretty, Maureen! And how nice to have found a frog to house your scissors...

I hope you have a very special Mother's Day!
