cross stitch pendant

I have been meaning to share pictures of the loot I picked up at the trunk show this past Sunday, because I love it all. This week, however, has been gloomy and dark, and I seem to have come down with a cold. I am sad about being sick because I haven't been sick in years and have always felt smug about this (see what happens?).

Last night I lay on the couch feeling sorry for myself and attempted to stitch onto this lovely, wood cross stitch pendant that Karyn was so sweet to give me in exchange for some fig spread. Disregard my stitches; I need to do it over -- I don't recommend stitching while lying down. Isn't the pendant incredible, though? They can be purchased at The Workroom.

  5. Oh I love the pendant! Can they be purchased online? It seems that I couldn't figure out where to purchase them on the website. I hope you feel better...I recently got laid up with the flu - yuck!

  9. That sounds amazing! I never wear much jewelry but I love a good pendant! Those bobby pins are pretty cute! I love the rose one. I love vintage plastic things -- there is just something about vintage plastic!

  10. I love the changeable quality of this-- with a few minutes, you could replace the existing stitches with something that matched or contrasted with your outfit!
