I was at my LNS for the stitch-in Friday night and there was talk of a "mystery" sampler. Blackbird is doing a mystery? Yes, you have to have all the charts from this years Loose Feathers program and at the end there will be a diagram for a seventh sampler using parts from the six charts in this years program. Key words, "mystery", "must have all the charts".....I was thinking, I don't have those yet, and I sure as heck don't want to miss anything. So, here are the first two charts, AND I decided I had to have this book. I have seen way to many cool things made from the charts in this book so I had to have it too! Can I please buy more time to stitch? PLEASE? I am supposed to be doing the yard work since dear hubby is gone for a year. I keep thinking, I wonder if it would be worth the money to pay someone to do it for me so I can stitch. How much stash money would I be giving up? It's just not fair to have to make that kind of decision, I tell you! I mean, check out the additional stash that came in the mail this week! I love clearance sales.
I did manage to get some stitching done this week, too. Three small projects. The "Grow Old With Me" design will go on the cover of a small scrapbook and become a gift to my hubby for our anniversary next month. The other two are LK freebies that I just felt like stitching. I have tons of small pieces of linen and I thought it would be fun to match them up with some small freebies and see how many I can get used up and stitched this year. I am also challenging myself to do the finishing work. I have been reading BeckyBee's blog and WOW!!! What an inspiration she is!
There is also a contest for you to check out on the Stitch Pink blog. All you have to do is leave a comment, but please take a minute to read about all of the great pink things you can stitch and support Breast Cancer Awareness.
Have a great day!
