It was a very busy work week, and with a little vertigo thrown in to put things ‘off kilter’ it seemed even more rushed! There are no finishes, but a little stitching was done this week.I’m still enjoying ‘A Wish for You.’I’ve changed the door’s initial to an ‘S’ and lightened up on the trim and windows with Weeks Parchment.Hopefully the weekend will see it completed.
It was a fabulous stashing week!My LNS –The Stitch and Frame Shop– came back from ‘Market’ with loads of beautiful and fun stuff, so I grabbed my list and headed off.The BBD girls had been busier than I remembered reading about – there were several pincushion rewards that I couldn’t resist, including this one, Breath of Spring, plus the great Stitcher’s Journey book. It is really fine and there are some great photos of it all around that I'm sure you've already seen!
I found several charts I’ve been ‘needing’ for some time on etsy, too.Someone had some items for sale without a blog, and I picked up this lovely book from the Charleston (South Carolina) Museum, Samplers and Embroideries from Charleston and the Lowcountry.
AND I received the prize, Blessed are the Needleworkers, I won from The Wooley Stitcher's Blog.It not only has the great chart, but also the silks to stitch with!Thank you so much, Kim!
I hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine as much as I am today.It’s still cool, but tomorrow is supposed to be in the 70’s.How great is that?
Spring must really be on the way – the guy who cut my grass last summer came by this morning to see if I still want to have his service this year.Ha, ha, ha…I loved it!Not having to spend a part of the weekend doing yard work – of course!!I also noticed the Tulip Tree is showing its color…
Thanks for stopping by, and I’d love to hear your comments or your favorite finds this week!
