Needlebook Exchange & A new Coat

Audrone has received the Tiny Treasures Too Needlebook that I stitched for her. She lives in Lithuania and I was worried that it might not arrive safely.

This is the first needle book that I stitched and finished. I t was a lot of fun and was an easy design to stitch. I found the pattern at Xstitch Happy.

I was so lucky to find the sunflower button. It was in my stash. I participated in a sunflower exchange several years ago and it was in a ziploc bag with some floss.I think the little bees are so cute.

Buffy got a Snuggy. We couldn't find a pink one, cause she is a little girl, but I think she looks good in blue. Look at that smile.

She is addicted to those Yam Goodies that you get at Walmart. I don't know why they are so good, but she thinks they are the Bomb. lol.

I found a new Fabric shop today It is Lydia's and is located in a little strip mall that is on my way to work. I just happened to see it when I stopped at the teller. Today was the first chance I had to check it out.

It is a small place but she has a lot of goodies. I found a coat pattern for Buffy and some Christmas prints. I have been wanting some of the large Ric Rac that I saw being used in finishing ornaments etc. She has all colors but I didn't get any today because I wasn't sure what colors I might be able to use.

We are going to make the bottom coat. Lydia has the pink animal skin fleece that is used for the collar. I am not sure what kind of fabric we will pick out but we are studying the pattern and will go and purchase what we need the first of the week.

The fabric in the background I am going to use for a Prairie Schooler Exchange that I am stitching on now. I think it will match perfectly and I can't wait to finish it and see the results.

I purchased these three fabrics. They have a lot of red and green , I hope I can match them up with something.

I am on my way to stitch on my Prairie Schooler, it is larger than I thought but, would like to finish it up tonight (the stitching Part). I want to start on my Hootsie Humbug. And still need to Finish Pumpkins 4 Sale by Thanksgiving.
