Now I really want to have a little girl...

I was just reading the latest entry from a blogger that inspires me ever so much. Maybe someday I can be just like her. For now I shall live vicariously through her and her blog. So much talent!

Click here to see what she & her girls have been up to lately: Le Petite Patisserie

I just finished up making my "Treat Bag" for the Yahoo Group, Stitcher's Time Out exchange. It was alot of fun. For the actual bag, I used felt that I felted from an old sweater found at the thrift shop. Then I just sewed on the design and blanket stitched the edges with DMC Perle Cotton and voila!

Just Cross Stitch 2005
Millenium Blue Linen
DMC threads

Not a traditional "Treat Bag", but I am very happy with the results since I just had an idea floating in my brain about how to finish it. I figure that the recipient can put a small pillow in it during the holidays and it would be cute. We do centralized exchanges (everyone mails to a moderator), that way nobody gets screwed out of receiving something. I would have personalized it more, but I don't know who is getting it.

I killed two birds with one stone on this project for the 50 project challenge. Woo Hoo for me!
