The Blue Tulip Tree

Several years ago I came across a picture of a crewel work wall hanging and I fell in love. I had no idea what it was called, but I started my search. A while back a flickr friend found a kit and made one of her own, and she let me know that it was called the "Blue Tulip Tree" by Paragon. She also started searching for another for me. I put in an automatic search on ebay, and last week it paid off. Up popped this gorgeous kit for less than $20 on 'buy it now', and the seller was willing to ship to Canada!

I've never done crewel work before, but hopefully it will turn out okay. There are instructions on the back, youtube videos of stitches for support, and a flickr friend with a few helpful tips!

As if I really needed another project to add to the basket right now, but I think this one will be well worth it.

Those who are thrown into fits of rage or bouts of enfeebled snark by replica watches sale like this will have plenty to say, but in my opinion, the dial and case look cool, refreshing, and fun. And he took a plane to rolex replica sale to get the watch. How he did it, I do remeber, but he came to replica watches uk and got it somehow. The reason he did it. Was he could get it send to Denmark. Because of the customs, they will take it and not return the rolex replica sale. Or do you have a phone nummer I could call you. Or any other way to communicate. Now they have destroyed it. The gradient dial is nice but then marred by the replica watches printed on it, and I appreciate the use of green highlight instead of red, but other than that this watch looks like a giant disaster. Apart from his fee some of the hublot replica will be quite pricy. For a start it has a new case. Attached is a copy the Customs Notice of Removal. They confiscated my watch.
