beautiful day

It's been a beautiful Monday here at my cottage.  I spent the day tatting and cross stitching (poorly).  Deana Mackenzie shared these emoji beads with me 2 years ago and I found the perfect thread to go with them.  I figure they will make cute scissor dangles.
I also finished a cross stitch Russian Doll ornament from the Gift Of Stitching Magazine.  I chose to make it on perforated paper instead of the called for cloth.  Unfortunately the finishing instructions for the face kinda make her look a little tawdry.  Or maybe she has false eyelashes....


  1. She looks a bit startled, but is otherwise lovely! The emoji beads are fun.

  2. She looks surprised to discover emoji. Very pretty!


Anyone out there? Say hi if you are......
