First Finish of 2012!



YAY ME! YAY ME! YAY ME! Little Happy Dance! Woo-hooo!!!
Ok let me settle myself. This is my first finish from all the projects I started for the 2012 Crazy January Challenge. I like Lizzie Kate's they are cute and small and bright. I found the cute easter fabric at Jo-Anne's, I want to make this into a little ornie/pillow. I also want to find a cute little bunny button for the lower corner of the alphabet. I thought the chick/easter egg buttons would do, but when I got them home they were way bigger than I thought, and I really want a bunny to go along with my carrot. Sigh, so still searching for my bunny button to finish this. And I will just have to find another Easter piece to start on, because the little chick buttons are too cute to stay in my button jar for long.

And I wanted to take another (better) picture of my Bent Creek "Home" piece, so that everyone could see the lovely shading in my letters. I so love the color (Weeks-Moss) I picked out for this. And for once I actually snuck outside in the daylight to take a quality picture. Yay me again! I have worked on my other 15 pieces for the January challange, but nothing to exciting so I will save those for another post.

Well done! :)

The same pattern was also my first finished piece this year. I haven't found a button to go with the carrot either, then again I haven't really been looking either. Good luck finding the bunny-button :)

*happy dance for you* the Easter L.K looks great stitched up, I love all her designs but never have managed to get around to stitching any of the designs - I love the Home chart aswell, will be great to see it finished up (no pressure ;)!)

Hope you have a really great weekend
