Wizards and wonderful mail

First...finished!
SamSarah Designs, "Baubles: W is for Wizard"
stitched on 28-ct. Newport linen
with floss substitutions
 I just love these little guys.  I think I will have them framed (when I have a bit of money saved up, who knows when that will be) and then hang them near my shelves full of Harry Potter books!

Secondly, I received some absolutely delightful mail today.  I won Meggie's 200-follower giveaway over at the Cross Stitch Cottage, and the package was in my mailbox this afternoon!  Her little bunny is exquisite.  And the stash....yay!  I think my favorites are the Joan Elliott book and the flosses...how can I NOT love a color called "Pixie Dust"?!?!?  Thank you so much, Meggie!

 The bunny does not yet have a name - I thought I'd give my Wee One the honor of naming her.  (So don't be surprised if her name ends up being something like "Stripey Bunny."  LOL We're still in that literal naming phase...)  For now she is sitting with my ort jar in my stitching nook.

And here are all the goodies Meggie sent!  Isn't it lovely?  And I promise, I took the snips away from the bunny right after the picture was taken -- we all know bunnies aren't to be trusted with scissors!!  As I said, I'm absolutely thrilled to have the Joan Elliott book and the flosses, and while some of the other things aren't my typical style, I've found a few that might come in handy for gifts and such.  Thank you again, Meggie!

Love the wizards and what you plan to do with them! I'm currently re-reading the Harry Potter series. Such a great story. :)

Decision Made

After monkeying with the shells and beads some more, I decided to take them all off... ...and I think I like it best this way.  I did add...
