May, Gifted Gorgeousness Update...

I know, I know...
I am a couple days late again, but I do have an interesting update to share, so I hope I'll be forgiven for being late. ;)

So, I have a special "Gifted Gorgeousness" Update...
Since Mother's Day was earlier this month, I received some lovely gifts, related to cross stitching and I wanted to share...
(The black bag, I won in a giveaway earlier this year and it is the perfect size for my supplies.)

I have an adorable new needle minder...
(This is the first needle minder I've ever had and I can't believe I waited so long... is so much more convenient!)

(The needle minder was purchased from the shop A Needle runs Through It and this shop has so much awesome stuff; I had a hard time buying just one item.  I will definitely be back to do more shopping.)

I also got a wonderful needle case...
This works so much better, when I'm away from home and stitching....
...because, it is so much easier to carry with me.

This item came from the shop Moon Garden Stitches and again, it is a really amazing shop!
(I'm sure I'll be back there to buy more later.)

And one of my favorite new gifts....
...a custom tote bag!
(I bought it from Vistaprint, along with my new business cards.)

I also got several new patterns...
(I swear, I was only looking for needle minders, when I came across this pattern shop: PinoyStitch ...
I ended up getting 4 new patterns, but I could have bought many, many more!)


So, for stitching updates, I bought the Scottish Terrier Dog Mini Sampler...

And, I plan on making it as a gift for my aunt...
(She loves Scottie Dogs!)
Not a huge start, but the first white doggie is coming along!

And then, a Halloween pattern that was a gift for me...
(Again, this was part of my Mother's Day presents.)

I love owls and I love Halloween, so this is one of my absolute favorite new patterns!
 The "witchy" owl is coming along!


I definitely need to be signed up for "cross stitch patterns anonymous", because I just can't help myself...
...I have to buy more and I just have to start them!

Oh well, at least I have tons (and tons) of projects to rotate, for when I get bored!

Well, that is all from my craft room for today..., to get back to work, finishing orders!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!
