Sale! They had at “In Stitches Needlework” my local needlework store yesterday, everything was discounted and I got some really good bargains. I know I need to buy more stash like I need another hole in my head but I couldn’t resist. I picked up this little chart by Erica Michaels. It is designed to be stitched on 40ct gauze (can you believe 40ct gauze) and is supposed to only be 1.8w x 1.8w ha ha (roflmao). My progressive lenses aren’t that progressive, they would probably burst into flame if I tried stitching something that small. Here, take a look.
Anyway here is the chart and the fabric I bought for it, the threads are DMC and two of them are blended together which will make things interesting. My fabric is 28ct Cream colored Cashel.
Since I love instant gratification I have been stitching on and finished this little design from Joan Elliott’s “Oriental Collection” a small booklet that came with one of my many magazines. If you eat Chinese food I’m sure you’ve seen this little statue in the restaurant before, I liked it and wanted to stitch it. I don’t know what I’ll do with it but here it is and it’s stitched on a scrap of 28ct linen left over from a previous project so that piece didn’t go to waste.
Here also are a couple other goodies I got, one is white 30ct Northern Cross linen and the other is (to-die- for) 32ct linen in “Coffee Bean”, the picture is not doing it justice. I have absolutely no idea what I am going to stitch on the fabric stash I have, which is getting kinda large (for me that is) but it’s fun to look at.
I did watch the game and congrats to all the Giant fans on the Super Bowl win, even though neither of my teams was in it, I was cheering for Eli, you know Peyton’s little brother. I thought the half-time show sucked big time but I loved most of the commercials especially the M & Ms and Doritos. Well enough of me blabbing today, time to go make some wonderful little xxs. Thanks for stopping by.
