A small finish!

You may remember that I recently made two ornaments from some vintage cross-stitched flowers my cousin made years ago.  Well, she gave me a third and final one--some violets. I quickly fashioned a sweet little ornament for spring/summer.  I was a bit rushed but I think it turned out ok--the ribbon and buttons match well.  I think this is the last one she has for me--too bad for there aren't any more!!!! HA

I've been in quite a hurry today because we are leaving bright and early in the morning for a week in Boston! I'm looking forward to going and relaxing!  The weather will be cooler than it is here in Mississippi!  I have looked online for cross stitch stores--I'm not having much luck.  I found a number of yarn stores and knitting places--not much on cross stitch.  Oh well, there are many things to do there, so I'm sure the trip will be fun!
Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
