Dollar Tree treasures....

They just opened a new Dollar Tree near me and I just love this store so I had to go check it out. (If you have ever been in one, you will appreciate that all of the merchandise was neat and orderly and not an item could be found on the floor! I plan to take advantage of this and shop frequently as I know that it won't take long for the store to be in total disarray.)
Oh well, I digress......


I thought these were just the cutest frames, but I have to confess, I did hem and haw over whether to purchase them or not. (I have a drawer full of other great $1.00 finds that I have yet to find the perfect use so you can understand my reluctance for at least a nanosecond.) Well, I decided I would "splurge" today and bought three of them in the colors offered.

I was amazed how perfectly a finish from 2006 that's just been hanging around fit this frame....


Heart In Hand "Sunflower Sampler"

How cute is this!!!!!!! I can't believe how perfectly (well...in my opinion) this fits and I am now on the search two mini samplers to use in the other two. I do believe I will make a return trip to the Dollar Tree tomorrow and splurge on a few more.

Thanks for all your wonderful comments and visiting my blog. I love them and hope you enjoy visiting my blog as much as I love looking at all of yours! Well...after my daily blog reading, I will be off to stitch. Next up is going to be CHS "Fredrika".

Wishing you many happy stitches this weekend....

    Would you still have this chart??? My best friend collects Sunflowers and I would love to stitch it for her. I would gladly trade or buy or stitch you something in return :)

    Looking forward to your start on Frederika; I saw her mate recently finished by Vonna!
