Happiness is….

This has been a loooong time coming and so Happiness is……….??!!!  188 (Medium) This wall hanging started out as some lucky purchases I stumbled upon last year at my local charity store.  I had  seen some mini kits for each of the stitcheries and thought, I can’t live without these at $1 each, so of course, they came home with me to live in the K.A.R.T.S drawer, forever and ever, AMEN!  012 (Medium) But, I found my will, and started stitching them up, one by one, during the year. 014 (Medium) and they were coming out pretty nicely, which spurred me on…. 010 (Medium) 005 (Medium) …and with a few design touches of my own…… DSC01598 (Medium) DSC01597 (Medium) …..and some hand quilting…. 146 (Medium)this li’l ol’ UFO is now finished!!!!!! 040 Yep……another finish for OPAM, finished earlier this month, and slack ol’ me only posted now but it’s a finish nonetheless……..that IS what Happiness is!!!!! 037 (Medium) Sugary Hugs :o) xox my signature

It is so beautiful, Wendy. Those little $1 stitcheries definitely needed a good home and they found it. Love the softness of the fabrics you used with them as well.

It's wonderful! And to think it all started as dollar purchases! Well done on a magnificent OPAM finish! :)

Hello Wendy,

Those one dollar coins were certainly well spent. A beautifully stitched quilt.

Happy days.
