I am back in Arizona and therefore my orts are once again floating in their martini glass. I am afraid it was a very small party as stitching has not been at the top of my list. There are a just a few stitches from my latest UFO RR, a secret ornament and my Sampler de Bouquets in the glass.
And when a girl is travelling and no stitching is happening what can she do??? Shop, did you say shop?
Yep, I did - in the stores and online. Here are a few things that happened into my hands along the way.
I got a chance to go to Fancimats in the Denver area and had to add the M designs Colorada tree. I also have the Las Vegas tree from a previous trip to Stitcher's Paradise in LV.
I do have a bit of stitching to show you.
One of my friends at home is planning to make a quilt using the Prairie Schooler alphabet. Many of us have volunteered to help her out. Here is my choice - X is for cross stitch.
I managed a few stitches on my Jardin Prive - the pot with the plant is my latest addition.
She is a penguin collector.This is so approriate coming from her. I love it and it hangs above my computer desk so that I can see it all the time.
When I arrived in Arizona a dear friend came for a visit and left me these two beautiful charts! I love them.
I do have a confession to make. My google reader had over 1000 posts and I just could not possibly catch up. I blew them away and have started fresh. I am so sorry but that was more than I could handle. I will try harder to stay on top of them and get back to commenting on your posts.
Until the next time, I have missed my stitching friends and look forward to catching up with you all.
