Crazy January Start #25 - Bohemian Paisley

Something a bit different - a surface embroidery kit from Bucilla!

Abnormally Quick

It took me just over two months to finish this! That's very quick for me.  Now I need to frame it so I can hang it up in the consular section.

For The Fior

Since Fior, Fior D'Amore is pretty dang big, I bought more thread for it now so when I get back to it, it'll be there.

Crazy January Start #24 - Tree Of Hope

I've got a good start on my tree, and now that my stuff has arrived (yay!), I can do the beads so I don't get lost tracking-wise.  At least, once I find my beads and find some room in this tiny flat.


The bottom of the second band is all fringed up.  Time to start the next page!

So Happy! No ORM-D

Every single Ipsy shipment since August has been returned until this one.  All of them had ORM-D (Other Restricted Materials - Domestic) stickers on them.  For some reason, the post office and diplomatic pouch do not like the idea of flying tiny bits of perfume, lipstick, body lotion, make up remover, and other things.  So places like Ipsy automatically slap those labels on every single package, whether or not there's anything "dangerous" in them.  I begged, and they finally stopped putting them on.  I hope this means that I get a February bag after my great January one!

Crazy January Start #23 - Jeweled Pear

This is one of those Mill Hill bead kits that came a couple of weeks ago.  Time to get it stitched.
