My order from Everything Cross Stitch came on Saturday. Everything I ordered was on sale so that was very nice. I also signed up for their newsletter and they sent me a welcome coupon. Which should help to explain the order I placed Monday...
Anyway, these are two of my most favorite designers. I have loads of their patterns and use them for stitching exchanges and gifts. I am currently working on Rose Sampler (LHN) and am more than half way finished. Over the weekend I had to crochet some bookmarks for another exchange I was in and like a space cadet, I forgot to take a photo before they went into the mail. When I make more, and I will, I'll be sure to take a pic to show you. I love to crochet, expecially quick small projects. Right now I am knitting some dishcloths for my husband. He is doing a remote assignment in Korea and asked me to knit him some cloths and crochet some scrubbers. I will take a pic and post it here before I send them to him.
Did anyone see "The Memory Keepers Daughter"? I just had to watch it. I bought the book quite a while ago but never got around to it. I am afraid that my "to read" stack is more like a three-dimensional list of movies I want to see when they come out. Of course, there are books that will never be made into movies so eventually I WILL have to read them to find out what happens. Well, the movie was very good and maybe someday I will be able to compare it to the book. Maybe.
Have a great day!

Yesterday I received my order from Handcrafts Online and not a moment too soon because the pattern for my next project was in there! That next project will be the Rose Sampler which I have already kitted it up.
I finished stitching the Cottage Garden thread pack yesterday! I love those thread packs and order one or two whenever I get the chance (have the money). They are a great way to collect the Crescent Colours threads and one of the thread packs in this latest order has the silks in it which I have not yet had the chance to try. I am looking forward to that! If only there were more hours in the day...
The wool fabric behind the Cottage Garden is what I think I will use for the Wool Needlecase and fob pattern. I still need to pull the threads and have a better look. Tomorrow I plan to spend the day at my LNS and get lots of stitching done before going to the guild meeting in the evening. It is going to be a fun day and if I want to be out of bed before noon, I had better get to sleep! Have a great day!
