Dear Fellow Stitchers
It has been two weeks since my last confession and I have been shopping. I was ill with that stupid cough most of the time I was home for Christmas and so mall shopping was not an option. But, oh, my fingers did their work via the internet. And so I am the proud owner of some new stash - check these out.
First up, I saw this Christmas pattern - on Anne's blog and had to have it! and I needed a new Mirabilia fairy while I was at it. I can't order just one pattern now can I.
Mirabilia - The Woodland Fairie
And of course, Merry Xmas needed some fabric and so I was off to Picture This Plus to order this delicious fabric - 32 count Lugana - "Haunted". This was my first time ordering from their website. The fabric is fantastic and their service was very quick.
Then, I received an email that Silkweaver had a sale on their grab bags. Well, I couldn't order just one and besides Beatrice might like some of these for her stash. Look at all these wonderful colors.
Next up I had an email at Christmas from our Not So Secret Santa - Judy M. Judy is a personal friend of mine and such a wonderful person. She often encourages me when I think about not blogging. She always makes me feel that I have something to contribute and I so appreciate it and her. She gifted me with a certificate to Mary Kathyrn's shop and so I purchased these!
Long Dog Samplers
Mary Kathryn kindly included the 2 Prairie Schooler designs.
In my mailbox the other day came the most special gift from my BFF Beatrice. She made me a project bag.
And I've been stitching. I did a little work on Long Dog's Bagatelle. It is easy to stitch with just one color. I love how it is coming out and the fabric is a delight to work on.
I am determined to finish up this stocking before the end of March and so here is my latest progress. I finished the first two pages and backstitched it. I love how his face just came alive as I added those stitches. You will probably be seeing lots of this one as I work to get it completed. I hope you don't mind.
I hope you all have a wonderful week and keep those beautiful stitches crossed.
