|Hi to all my friends. Thanks for all your kind comments about my chair! Let me know if you want a quick tutorial on how to do it. It was easy! A quick update on my progress since my goals were posted last month. This is the Toy Chest Etui that I am stitching with Margaret. We are trying to stitch a page a week, and so far we are only a week behind. LOL. This is the needle book, and it was a really easy stitch. I added my initials and date to the design.|
|I had the pleasure of attending my niece's baptism in Arizona last weekend, and my mom and I went to THE Attic Needlework store. If this store doesn't make you want to plunk down some serious cash for stash, then I don't know what will! It's amazing! Katrina and Paulette, recently shared some of the eye candy there. Among my stash purchases I bought Scarlett Houses, Hannah Tingey and decided on getting fabric as well. Her sampler was done on 45 count, which made it so dainty and delicate. I loved it, but honestly didn't know if I could stitch on 45 count. I went with the 40 count. Hopefully I can see that! My mom and I bought the fabric and silk for Blackbird's, Christmas Garden. We also enabled my SIL, and bought some for her too. The Attic ladies have changed the colors, and it was stunning. I have the pattern on order, and I'm excited to put a few stitches in this when it comes. I also bought Historic Stitches John Foster 1885. They had this stitched on 29 count linen over one, I couldn't resist the beehive.|
