WIP update

I finished the stitching on my sister's tree ornament this week. Now I have to decided which beads I want to use. She said she liked red and gold together, so will try a few gold one's to see how it looks.

In my previous post I mentioned a little trip. Two friends and I traveled to southeastern OK. to visit our friend Mary Ann. She owns a gift shop in Idabel, Mimi's Simple Elegance. When we leave town, her shop is bare in a few areas. I splurged and bought me a nice pair of pearl earrings, a great needlework tote, a purse to match, and some other goodies like lotions, soaps and tea towels. The four of us always seem to have a great time when we visit.

Have a great weekend. It is beginning to look like rain here.

How cool is that to have a custom ornament with your own name! It looks lovely. Your little birdies are so very cute too. Nice work
I am sure that visiting and shopping with your friends was a lot of fun. There is something about group shopping that is so therapeutic.

Looking good...I bet gold and red will look nice. Hope the storms didn't do any damage your way. Whewwww they looked nasty. We only got rain and high winds. I love the lil bird. So cute.
