Cross Stitch Update and a Fun Purchase

Last night I finished the January block of Anniversaries of the Heart! I had planned to dedicate this one to my hubby, but I didn't plan ahead well enough. I learned I need to plan out the personalization BEFORE I start stitching the motifs! There wasn't room for his name. So since this is the first block of a pattern dedicated to my family, I decided that EST (Established) 1984, was appropriate - the year we got married.

I wasn't so sure about that peacock - peacocks hold no special interest to me. But then a few weeks ago someone came up with a new logo for our Auburn University basketball team It's a peacock! Okay, so now peacocks do have a special meaning for us. We have been enjoying watching the basketball games, though I haven't been to any more since I caught flu when I went over the holidays.

I have barely started the border for the February block. By the time I finish the border, I need to decide about the personalization details.


Through Jo Kramer's blog (joscountryjunction) I discovered Deborah Harry. Find Deborah's site on Facebook. She makes the most adorable project bags using vintage linens. Oh my - they are gorgeous!!!!  Well, that sounded like something fun for me to make. 

Above is one of Deborah's cute project bags. I just LOVE these!

But I didn't have any vintage linens! Well, I knew that Jo Kramer's daughter (Kayla) has an etsy shop (PinsThrifting) with all things vintage. So I went there and order a few vintage linens. Aren't they adorable??? I also got some vintage rick rack from her and a few vintage children's books. 

The shipment came so fast. It was packaged so well and wrapped in a piece of vintage fabric - and old sheet, I think. So now I have another project

Kayla used old ephemera for her business cards - isn't the best idea ever? 

So go check out Deborah Harry on Facebook - she is dropping new project bags on etsy this weekend. And also check out PinsThrifting on Etsy.

Have a great day and continue to stay safe!
