Escaping from the Gypsy Moth Caterpillars

The day I had to get a cupcake to calm my nerves after the gypsy moth caterpillars landed on me, I wandered into Cape Kaleidoscopes at the Mashpee Commons shopping area.  They have the most beautiful stuff ever....gorgeous stained glass discs for beautiful wood kaleidoscopes.  If I won the lottery I would buy every single one of them!!!  They did, however, have a really great selection of $9 scopes, so I picked one up.  Then took pics through it after I got home.




Also started my Rudolph character ornaments kit.  "Hello, Clarice."

Hermie & Santa

Rudolph

Sam Snowman

And my absolute fave monster EVER, Bumbles!  Isn't he the cutest?  I may have to leave him out year round.



I am in love with this Four Seasons Tree diamond painting.  Tiles in every shade of the rainbow.  It's been a delight to work on.  Tsing really makes the best kits.  Here it is at the halfway point. 

Some of my friends tell me that I must have a lot of patience, but it's really so much easier than paint by number and it goes way faster too.


Ta-Da!!!!!  Done!  This was so much fun.  Addictive.  I even found a space on the wall for it.  Still have to frame that peace sign though.


Now that my diamond painting is done, I can start working on some beady things.  Soon, my pretties. Soon.

  1. I would like to have a kaleidoscope again. Mindless mellowing is sometimes a necessity around here. :-)
    Adorable cross stitch for Christmas. The Four Seasons tree is very pretty.

  2. I cannot imagine having the patience to work on half the things you do. Have you ever tried painting pictures yourself?

    1. Thanks!! I have zero talent when it comes to freehand painting. I have to follow a pattern/instructions or I'm totally crippled.
