Short and Sweet

Well this may be short and sweet ...or not.  Yesterday I went to stitch night at In Stitches for the first time since our lock-in in July, man I was ready we all had a good time catching up.  I also spent just a little bit on the supplies for my Idelia Mae Rich by Little by Little.  I bought the recommended threads, two were Gentle Arts (Apple Cider and Rhubarb) the others were DMC. The chart called for a 35 ct Dark Espresso which the store didn't have so instead I got a beautiful 36ct Vintage Buttercream and of course it doesn't show in the picture, but believe me it is beautiful.  Now when ever I get the hankering for a new start she's ready to go. 

In my frenzy to make sure I got a copy of the Cross Stitch Gold magazine I bought one from Barnes & Noble  and a few days later my subscription copy came in the mail, so I gifted it to my friend Irene and in return she sent me some fat quarters of fabric, beautiful sparkly floss and the most adorable frog buttons.
I am almost finished stitching the last of the B/W designs, this will be done by days end.  Then it's on to something else in my rotation.
Last but not least is a picture of Freddy the frog with a frog on his back, thanks to my friend Jan I now have a place for all my scissors.

 Well I'm off again to Atlantic City with hubby to celebrate our 36th anniversary. I know it's weird the man loves slot machines.  So I have to pack and decide which stitching project is going along for the ride.  Thanks all for stopping by and of course leave a comment please I'd love to hear from you xxs.

Happy Anniversary (too late). It's kind of nice being with the same person for so many years. It's hard work getting there but now he's kind of comforting like a pair of old shoes. LOL It's nice to know what to expect. So that's the last of the B/W designs, eh? I can't remember how many there were. I have them printed but haven't started them. As always, love reading your blog.
