As you can see, I made a trip to my LNS today. Always a fun trip. I needed a couple of things for my exchange piece, some beads for my RR (I can’t seem to find my gold beads anywhere!), the threads for my sheep blankets, and some Floss-A-Way bags. I came home with a couple of extra things. Carriage House Samplings “Love” and two Little House Needleworks pieces “Colonial Homes” and “Hannah Purington” from the Dear Diary Series. I was seriously tempted to get a lot more.
I also received the new Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers “Their Song” with the fabric and threads. I love this piece. It will be just beautiful with those colors I think.
I stitched on Barnabee, and finished up Part 1. I just love stitching on this and am so glad that so many of us are SAL-ing on it.
And I’ve made a little start on Part 2. The whole thing is looking pretty good, I think. Sorry for the slightly wonky photos, I didn’t take it off the q-snap to snap the photo. My wonderful friend Pam is in town from Reno, so we get to go and have dinner with her tonight and visit. I am really looking forward to it. And instead of stitching on Mystery 9 this weekend, I may stitch on my RR and Exchange pieces. I am almost done with both and am starting to get a little nervous about finishing them. I am also a little nervous about finishing Baby Garden on time, so you may see that one start to get a little more attention in the next few weeks. My Goddaughter’s birthday is at the beginning of May, and I would like to have it finished in time for that. Hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend!
I am grateful for trying on new sizes!
