Once Upon A Time...

in a land...well...um...not so far away really...a stitcher took a kit that had been languishing for so long she can't remember when it actually came to live in the castle and with a bit of floss, and a bit of thread, and a little bit of time, created...

A Gnome and a Toadstool...
 The Gnome at the front door to the Toadstool House...
And at the side window checking out the button flowers...

From a kit by Jodie of Ric Rac "Mushy and Gnome" that I bought so long ago that I can't remember actually when, but I think it was at an early Daylesford Makers' Market (do they still have them?).  Of course being a Jodie kit it went together awesomely well with no issues.  I couldn't be bothered changing floss colours and mucking about stitching three little daisies or whatever so I used little buttons instead, just because I could.

There really is no point to either the Gnome or the Toadstool except that they were cute and I liked them so I bought the kit...now I can finally have them decorate my sewing room shelf.

So that makes...drum roll please.....6, yes folks count 'em, 6 finishes for me since Sunday! and a good start to OPAM this year...

Happy Stitching...

Woohoo, six finishes!! These really are SO cute, not everything has to serve a useful purpose, cuteness is a purpose in it's own right.....
