Its Wednesday! Which means its WIP Wednesday!
My stitching has suffered this week, I started coming down with a cold on Thursday and for the week leading up to that I was tired and cranky. I just thought it was the pace work has been going at, now I know my body was fighting not to get sick! I've not had a cold in a long time!
After last week's finish I pulled back out an ornament I had started this past summer when I got my copy of the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Preview Issue. I couldn't help myself I had to start Ink Circles, Stained Glass Holly ornament. Of course it has to be stitched over one on 25ct. I hope to finish it up before my next WIP Wednesday report.
On Saturday Christin and I decided to do a bit of a daytrip to one of two LNS's that are close to us. The two LNS's that are "close" are both about a 3 hour drive! We packed our Passports and drove to the Syracuse, NY area to visit Stitcher's Garden. We of course hit JoAnn's and I found a dress for a wedding next month. A great roadtrip. I picked up a few more charts, a zipper mesh bag, and two small pieces of linen. We also managed to score copies of the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue! Yay!
I have two things I should of shared with you back in the summer. I got busy with holidays and travel, going back to work, and work being insane for the last two and a half weeks! Back in the summer I got two very lovely and generous gifts from fellow bloggers.
From my good online friend Dee... who I must meet in person some day! We've had some great interactions through e-mail/blogs and social media for quite a few years now! I had seen some knitted dishcloths she had made on her blog. I not so subtly told her I might need one! Not too much longer lately a lovely parcel showed up on my doorstep with two dishcloths she made and some red floss! Dee I know I thanked you personally ... once again I really appreciated your parcel.
For a little while now I've been reading Jacquie's blog who is a lovely stitcher in the UK. One day she e-mailed me and asked for my snail mail address. I didn't have to wait long before this adorable pincushion arrived in the mail! Thank you Jacquie!
