Z is for Zentangle

This one is not a Mill Hill bead kit, but a project that I did a while ago and thought I would share.
 This was a Catherine Jordan piece that I stitched and just love it! One of these days I will stitch another using the tangles my oldest son likes to draw.
Glad this is the last A to Z Challenge post. I don't think I will be doing this again next year....

Y is for Amarillo?

 Well, Amarillo is yellow in Spanish so there you go!

X is for all those little stitches...

 Most Mill Hill patterns have a little of the paper showing, but not this one!
I still have a bit to go on it, but hopefully it will be done next month.

W is for Winter Wonderland

 I am afraid to start this one with all the white on it. Maybe if I get brave I will work on it next year.

A to Z Catch Up Post

First up is this little kit. Another card, if I ever get it done.

Q is for quality. I like it that every thing I need is in the kit. Very rarely have I run out of thread or beads and Mill Hill has always been helpful in supplying what was lacking.

 R is for Rosa. I love the blue flower on her head!

 S is for Sailor Teddy. I am not exactly sure why I bought him although my guess is that it was the price...

T is for Tulip Egg. When I bought this I did not realize that it is all beading. Pretty, but not a take along piece.

 U is for useful. The little penguin is a magnet holding up my son's college schedule.

 V is for Verde. What can I say? I am addicted!

If you made it to the bottom of this post, congratulations! I allowed life to get in the way of my posting. I also admit that I do not like the new A to Z Challenge format. I find it nearly impossible to find other craft blogs. Sigh. Oh well. I am getting a bit of stitching done. Some I cannot show you, but hopefully there will be a finish or two in May.

O is for Owlets

I fell in love with these little Owlets when I first saw them. Alas, I did not buy the whole series, but I think I have enough Mill Hill bead kits, don't you?

N is for Naranja

I just noticed that this one has a peace charm on the forehead. I do need to find a family member who would like these...

M is for Morado

Yes, another Calavera Sugar Skull. I love the teeth on this one for some reason. I know-weird.

L is for Love Coffee and Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop 2017

First up is my A to Z blog challenge. I wish I had bought the whole set of these little hearts. The others had different things on them-music was one- and they would be so fun to stitch and give away. Oh well!

And here is my Easter stitching!

I really don't have much. Each year I tell myself that I should stitch something new for the different holidays/seasons. Each year I find other things to stitch.
Anyway, if you are part of the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop put on  by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching
Here is your letter:
The next blog is:
 Have a great Easter!

K is for Kits

I love kits! Which is probably why I love Mill Hill. The kits contain everything you need-thread, perforated paper,pattern, needles and beads. They are easy to grab and go. What is there not to love?

J i for Joyful Angel

I am sure I have done this angel before or at least one very similar....But it is tucked away in my Christmas box so I can't check!

I is for Ice Crystals

I can't remember if I have done one of these yet. I love how delicate they look.

H is for Hummingbird

I think this Hummingbird kit is one of the prettiest that Mill Hill makes. Which is why it is in my stash.

$161 February
+ 25 monthly
 +2 cards
+25 Spirit of Jean
+25 ANG pilot
+ 6 Pumpkin Birdhouse

Total- $214
I think I might have bought something else, but can't remember. My weight is stable so no money for it.(At least it didn't go up this month!)
I hope to post some progress photos on Sundays where there is no A to Z Blog check in. I must admit, I do not like their new format. I cannot find any new blogs to read. Oh well! I will go check up on my reading list...

G is for Gone

Well, Gone Fishin' Froggie... My kids picked this one out too, I do believe. It will make a cute card, one of these days.

Friday, April 7, 2017

F is for Frity Frog

I think my kids picked this out for me to do years and years ago. He is kind of cute, don't you think?

E is for Elderberry

Ok, ok...I had NO kits that started with an E so I noticed that Autumn Basket had elderberry colored beads.

Wednesday, April 5, 2017

D is for Daisy Mae

I love these ornaments! One of these days they will be part of my Crazy Challenge!

C is for Chipmunk

Or Chippy the chipmunk. I hate these little rascals as they dig up my garden and take a single bite out of my tomatoes, but a beaded one...that I can handle!
