I love thrift stores! It's so exciting to look around and find something that you love!
I go often to Salvation Army, both for donating stuff and to shop.
Other day, we decided to go to Goodwill, and it was such a good idea.
I really love this cubby shelf from Pottery Barn. It looks so pretty on this picture.
I am planning to use it to display cross stitch ornaments and seasonal trinkets, like at the banner on the Little House Needleworks website.
And I found more...
It was a great shopping day!
Now I need to work on some new cross stitch ornaments... have to find the time!
And one last thing: a picture of my lovely tulips.
Have a wonderful day!

Hello! I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day! We had a great day yesterday with lots of flowers! I just love these red tulips!
Talking about Valentines, a while ago I made this table runner to donate to The Children's Tumor Foundation .
I need to make a Valentine table runner for my side board. I had no time this year.
Right now, I am sewing some new clothes for Brenda. She is growing like a weed (a very cute weed), and outgrowing all her church dresses.
I have a big problem finding nice and affordable clothes for her now. Clothing people have no idea how a girl 8 and up should dress. Not like a teenager! And most of the teen stuff is not good anyways.
I will be making her a couple of new dresses and blouses, but for now I made some new skirts.
And these two are made of very light corduroy.
This is the last one. Pink corduroy.
Now I have some Spring /Summer skirts to make.
Have a great weekend!

I finally have a finish!
This is a very small and simple finish, but I always loved this pattern.
It comes from one of my old cross stitch magazines from Brazil, and I believe it was originally from The Cross Stitcher, but I am not sure.
I love the bit of ribbon embroidery mixed with the cross stitch.
I had finished the stitching a while back but could not decide how to finish it. Seems like an eternity since I finished a cross stitch project.
Organizing my stitching stuff other day, I found the little hanger my friend Jodie gave me a couple of years ago, and here you go,I made a tiny mini quilt!
I know, the polka dot fabric was not being nice to me...one of those days. The dots are wonky, but I like it anyways. And with the cold we are having here in Southern California, daffodils make you think of Spring. I am starting to work on my little garden already.
Have a wonderful day!
