Well, first of all, I want to show you a site that I have mentioned before. It is called Annie’s crazy world and she has an ongoing cross stitch sampler. As of her last blog post she is up to Band Sampler 168 – Detail 931 – An Embroidered Map. She stitches the events of her days, life. I keep telling myself that I am going to start an ongoing sampler and I have already cut up some aida pieces to make it into a long length:
There are a few different colour pieces on the scroll and ready to go. The little tin is one that I use when I have a project going and the threads are remnants of what I have on my big frame (gotta get it finished too). Anyhow, my sister turned me onto these tins…the perfect size for projects. I keep collecting them; buying them with the carmel-filled chocolate ;)…such a penance! I think that they have this chocolate for every season, this one is for winter, then there are for Christmas, Valentines and Easter. Hmmmm….I wonder if there are any for St. Patrick’s day or Halloween :). Anyway, I should be putting the first stitch in soon.
And I went shopping:
I needed some therapy 🙂 (I know, old joke). I took a workshop in strip quilts and I wanted some more patterns. There are a few little projects too! The Quadrille pattern is something I saw and I want to make one of those quilts with my moda fabric. And check out my Bunnyhill pattern! I like that she combines embroidery and quilting.
The Christmas pattern is for christmas card pockets…would be great for gifts! And the other patterns were in the goodie bag that I ordered…sometimes I like to be surprised and I was pleasantly surprised. The Fat Quarter Shop has goodie bags that go with one of the strip therapy books so I chose the book and got the rest of the patterns. Enough shopping for awhile!
Well, it is off to do a little blog hopping!
