No, that's not an official holiday or anything but I feel like it should be! And if it was... then today is the day. :) I got a bunch of goodies in the mail today--want to peek?
First is a small order I placed from 123-stitch.com with a sale they were having last week. A few small oval finishing forms to have on hand and a pair of Dinky-Dyes Union Jack scissors for my younger daughter, Mary who is obsessed with England. They are a site I check out frequently and they ship incredibly fast so if you haven't checked them out before you are really missing out.
Next is my order from Bush Mountain here in Massachusetts which you've all heard me say before is my absolute favorite shop on the planet. Some Crescent Colours, A couple of LHN and L*K designs, as well as a GORGEOUS 18"x27" piece of Light Mocha Linen in 32 ct. (stay tuned for what I'm doing with that). This is part 1 of 2 because Maeann is ordering a few things so it'll be like Christmas all over again when the second part arrives! They also have incredibly fast shipping and it's free since I've physically shopped in the store (one of the cool deals they have for patrons). LOVE THEM!
This final photo is from a trade I did with Carolyn C. in FLA for some colored aida I know I wouldn't use: some great linen pieces and a CCN & ST chart as well as some yellow silk. Trading is a great way to take advantage of "new to you" and not hurt the wallet.
I'm hoping to wrap up the model I'm stitching this week (still can't show you since the design isn't released to the public yet) but we'll see how the week goes. My late lunch break here at the office is just about over so I need to say goodbye for now... have a great week and remember to just keep stitching! ~Nicole
