This morning I finished putting the final stitches in Allie's name and proceeded to do the sewing part. In the picture, the blank area above the name looks like it is sewn uneven but I promise this is an optical illusion!
Here is the backing fabric Allie picked for her stocking.
Yesterday I went up to our LNS for our monthly stitchers group. I had fun but since the stocking was at home drying I brought the current gift I am stitching but since it is one over one and the lighting wasn't really good enough for one over one stitching I ended up looking at all the wonderful patterns. Ah...3 hours to look at patterns and not have a child tugging at my shirt wanting to leave!! I was very good and only purchased a few items since I had just bought stuff the day before:)
This weekend I accumulated:
Britty Bunny-Brittercup Designs
Trimming the Tree-Lavender Wings
package of needles
1 yard white 32 Belfast
2 wood boxes
2 pkgs mill hill beads (for topaz fairy...still have a lot to get!!)
I'm not sure what exactly I am going to work on today. I need to finish the gift I'm working on but I have something in mind for the Frosty Friends exchange. I have already finished something for the exchange but I came across something I think would be better but that remains to be seen!
That has to wait until I get my errands done for today! I have to buy groceries and the post office but it is kind of cold outside and I don't want to go outside. However, I have to do it...for some reason the kids think that they will die if there isn't food here for them to devour when they walk in the door after school. Enough talking about it...I have to get my butt up and do it! :)
Enjoy your day!
