So, I gave into the urge to start something new, before(again) finishing something! I Made a trip into Joann's Fabric to use my 50% coupons to get some 28 ct mushroom evenweave...plus one DMC color (680) I couldn't believe I didn't have! I am the woman who cleaned out 3 Walmarts within a 40 mile radius when it was being clearanced out at .10 cents each last summer! Isn't this always the case though? LOL I got to use one of my 50% off coupons on the newest Just Cross Stitch too, so that was worth the trip! And it looks to be a good issue and I know I will stitch a few things from it, but I have to show you this nice design in it that I am itchin' to start too, it's called The Scroll Pillow and it calls for a single shade of Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk floss, but I can't afford the "nice" floss right now, so will settle for a nice shade of DMC.
So I also kitted up Plum Street Samplers "Morning Bird", that is why I needed the evenweave above! Wanted to make at least a few stitches on it tonight, but I got all involved with trying to make my blog look better! I am new at the Blog thing and learning as I go!
Oh, Enabler alert! After browsing Paulette's Blog(PSS Designs), she posted a picture of a quaker finish her mom stitched up for her, and had forgotten that I had that chart, it is a Monasterium Design called Willie's Quaker Square #7, and was featured in TGOS June 2008 Issue! So, of course I couldn't resist a quaker, especially one I had here at hand, and I forgot! LOL
Me forgetting....reminds me(LOL) of a cute email Jan B sent me today about our "Forgetter" is broken! If I remember(oh this is bad puns) LOL I will post the cute little poem for you all to see and enjoy!
Ok off to bed for me, again I find myself staying up too late, no wonder I need naps all the time! LOL
