Mother's Day, a finish, and a great buy!

Hello! I haven't had anything to post for a while, but today, I have quite a bit! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! I sure did! My mom gave me this necklace.

It's a Swarovski topaz (my birthstone) crystal on a gold chain. I love it!

A friend of mine stopped by last Wednesday on her way from Colorado to Maryland to see her son. She is an awesome needlewoman and this is what she made me!

Isn't it gorgeous!? It's tatted and I still need to press it, but I just love it! Her work is SO beautiful! Thank you, Betsy!

And my finish is Cantata by Whispered by the Wind. I used WDW and it's stitched 1 over 2 on New Castle (40 ct.) linen. I love the way it turned out! Now to figure out how I'm going to "finish" it.

This is Jasper sitting in his little seat last week being cute!

And our local Deals store (owned by Dollar Tree) is closing soon and I bought what they had left of these tubes of hand lotion. There are about 25 in this basket and I've got 8 or so in other locations - my purse, my desk at work, my stitching bag, etc.

I love this lotion! Wally World used to carry the larger tubes, but quit carrying it. I can only get it in the tubs there. These tubes are the perfect size for purse, stitching bags, desk. etc. I think this should last me a while!

I may have another finish in a few days. I've started a scissors fob from an older issue of JCS and it shouldn't take long to do.

I hope everyone has a great week!

Eskie smiles,
