Lemons Limes and More update

Haven't stitched on this for about two months now and decided to pull it out and show it some love. It is coming along nicely :)

Christmas word tree by M Designs

Finished this one on 7/16 and just ironed it today. I stitched it on 32ct Belfast Linen by Silkweaver...I think it was a solo cut. Thread is DMC Rayon S5744 (30744). I will be making the buttons to add on. Note on rayon: Bees wax works great to tame this beast rather than Thread Heaven. And use short lengths

Went thrift shopping last week and found some treasures! Along with finding a few frames to frame some projects I found these two items.

First was this box. It is really cute and the picture can be removed and a small cross stitch project added. Only $1.00

Here is the inside.

I also found this beauty!!! After painting the fabric last week and ironing it after it dried I was on a mission to fine a "real" iron. This baby is by General Mills. It has to weigh about 7lbs and boy does it work! Comes with an iron stand but will still need something else under it so it doesn't burn surfaces. I used it last night and it removed all of the wrinkles that my wimpy new iron couldn't handle. Love it! Only $20.00

I'm still in search for more flower frogs.
