We mostly bought fabrics this time. We bought 40, 38, & 32 cts. I bought the 32 ct. for my Mirabilia RR coming up in defference to dear friend Kathy A. who is now having trouble seeing 40 cts. I understand the feeling sometimes!!! Will talk about my Mira ideas in a later blog.... :)
A new update on my Beatrix. The bottom medallion and the bird medallion are newest additions. I just love the bird. Hoping to get more done on this for April.
Nicole and I had fun looking at my color palette for this piece. I finished my little house over the weekend, and can't wait to stitch more. Choosing my own threads makes this like painting a picture. Doubles the fun.
Speaking of which, I've been working out my thread colors for The Plantation Sampler, as well, hoping to update it a bit. Well, perhaps because of that or some reason or another....I've had a swarm of frogs on my stitching!!! I've been absolutely plagued all weekend. I've frogged and frogged this small section out until I nearly gave up on the whole thing altogether!! I was beginning to worry that I was going to wear out the linen! Truth be told I'm still not sure if they've left me. I'm nearing trepidation to pick The Plantation...up! Has anyone else found this border difficult???
An and Harmien, do you think it may not be a frog plague but a nest of goonies and mcgoblins that are playing havoc with my stitching??? Argh!!
That's all for my long weekend, except that we had a wonderful Easter with sweet Kellan, Jessica and her DH, Kevin. Kevin made brunch, I fed Kellan, and Jessica laughed and talked with us. Then, Kellan had a nice swim with his bath toys outside in his little pool. Jessica tells me today that Kevin said they really have to bring it in because the birds have been delighted to find a big birdbath today!! Oops!
He loves his red car. Got his first little boy (10 mos. old) haircut this week.
Bye for now! BTW, thanks everyone for leaving such awesome comments last time. I felt like we really had a stitching visit. Thank you. It's a big part of my life to have stitching friends like each of you. You mean so much to me. Hope your Easter was a good time with good friends and family.
Love and hugs, Deb
