I picked up my Secret Swan piece and saw that all the stitching I did the other night was off kilter!  Wish me luck this time around.  It's actually below 90 here in Austin.  Happy Fall!

I bought this months ago and haven't even put it on a frame.  I must take it to Amy's and at least start it.  Right???

Going to Amy's!!

I am making my annual pilgrammage to Amy's Golden Strand in Memphis very soon.  I can't wait!  I love to go but need it more than ever this year!  What will I be taking?

Need a tiny buckle or suggestion for the hat

I stitched! I really did!

I wish I could show you but it is my Secret Swan ornament.  You remember our tradition of drawing names and secretly stitching all year on an ornament for the SWAN's name you drew?  And the big reveal at our annual Christmas party.  What fun that is!  These are just a few of the ornaments from the past.  Treasures for sure!

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.
