Puffy Flowers, Cross Stitch and Thrifting !

 I am still working away on the blue puffy flower blanket and thought I would give you a progress update :)
 It is getting there , I am probably 2/3 of the way finished!
 When we were out Flea Marketing this weekend we stopped in a Good Will store and my daughter found this barnwood frame on a shelf for $2.00 It had a gold velvet around the inside and it matches with the gold color in the Prairie Schooler  Rabbit Run ..Just have to get it mounted and popped in the frame and it is ready for next Springs decorating !
 I am working on the May cottage , from Country Cottage Needleworks ..Of course I have changed the colors :)
At the same Good Will I got this chicken plate for 49 cents ! It looks so cute on the shelf in the kitchen !

Hope you all have a wonderful week  ! Thanks so much for stopping by ! I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest , Etsy..all the links are in the sidebar !

Linking to these fabulous parties !

Wow, that frame looks like it was made for that stitching! The quilt is gorgeous and coming along so nicely. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

I just love your puffy flower blanket. I just started crocheting and would love to make something like that. I am thinking that it is probably not for beginners! Where would I get a pattern for it! Love the frame and chicken dish. Goodwill is one of my go-to thrift stores!

Hi Priscilla,
I absolutely love your blanket and even though I am new to crocheting, I finally have the flower pattern down. Do you have a pattern for the square around the flower or could you guide me to what pattern you used to do the squares and finish the afghan. It's just stunning!
Thanks for sharing your are so inspiring ;)
