I received a call from my LNS that some things I ordered were in. So off I went and here is what I picked up:
The new Mirabilia, Roses of Provence, her bead pack and White Chocolate 16ct Aida. Since ordering this I have decided to stitch her on Stephanie’s Sky & Grass which she is currently dying for me. Can’t wait to get it and start this. I also decided to do Country Cottage Needleworks Santa’s Village. I am going to do them all on one piece and had to order the fabric. I will be stitching it up on 16 ct Aida Lambswool. I also had to have Winter Snow, also by Country Cottage Needleworks. I just love the colors in this and the Santa Village series. After looking on their website, there is a lot on there I like. Who would have thought, as I am not a country person. But I think a lot of their things look vintage and I do like that. There is also some peppermint striped fabric for some ornaments that I want to stitch and a snowflake bell pull for a future snowman project. I had to pick up 2 new bookmarks for hubby as he is on his 2nd one and I think maybe he is liking this stitching stuff. I also ordered the last 2 Mirabilia Reindeer I need for my afghan-Prancer and Rudolph. I hope to start this one some time this year. So that was my fun shopping trip today. I will share my progress on Emerald Mermaid this week. I had to do a bit of frogging last night and was not happy as I don’t have a lot done and don’t need to be frogging so early on! So now I hope that the frogs have hopped on and I can continue without any trouble.
