New Finish and Today's Shopping

Hello Hello Everyone!

Today was a great day.  DH spoiled me rotten.  I got enough dmc for two projects, thanks also to joanns sale.  Gorgeous fluffy yarn at 97 cents a skein.  Then hubby says i can get a HAED..my first!!!  He said two but they are not on sale anymore, so I will only get one.  Now to pick it.  That is the hard part.

Here is something I finished, after a year, because i hate backstitching.  I did it last night with my ladies group.  I really missed them.  Due to funds, I did not see them for a while, but I was back and they missed me as much as I missed them.

Here is my fininsh:

Hope everyone is having a great day, as well!!

That's very pretty! Backstitching is a chore, but it really makes a difference!

Beautiful finish.....yeah, backstitching is a pain, but I like how the outlining makes things stand out....useless outlining that isn't pronounced is a pain.
