A small finish

Bee Box for treasures
Done!  I added the brown bunny and spinning pink heart on the bottom.  Off to the finisher!  The minute I finished that I got in bed with Prince Charming.  I removed his face color.  He looked as if he might be ill at any moment.  Much fresher looking now.

Sweet Bee Box

Lots of stitching at the beach allowed me to make some serious progress on my little box for momma.  
I added the bunny and flower to the bottom for a sweet surprise.  I might even finish tonight.

From Carolyn Baird
I got the diagrams for the bunny and flower from Carolyn's Merry Easter Eggs book.  It is a wonderful resource.

My kind of binging

I went to Joann's for some DMC but went ribbon binging instead.  All of these were a buck a piece except the plaid on the end.  That was 50% off.  I can't wait to see where this will all end up.

I see possibilities already!

Where I started

Where I ended
 After storming City Hall Thursday morning, I settled in for some cross stitching on my Village of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings.  Almost finished with block 6 of 12.
