On Thursday I met with a few fellow stitcher friends and we had a great time together. We first met at Starbucks where I tried to stitch with them but I only got a few x's in. Try as I might, I cannot stitch and talk at the same time.
Pictured here from left to right is Anna, Brett (I affectionately call her Bert, oh I hope she doesn't mind), me and Catherine. We spent almost two hours there before heading over to The Strawberry Sampler for some much needed stash shopping.
Since I belong to the COTM club at Sassy's Fabby's I didn't need any linen. I did however need an assortment of threads for a few charts I wanted to kit up. I also wanted to come home with the 2012 Book Of Days. I got their LAST ONE! Whew! Well here's a pic of what I
A girl can never have enough needles so I picked up a package of my favorite, John James gold petites.
I never go away from the shop without also grabbing a pair of scissors. I've been drooling over these online for a while.
I always bring with me something for the girls at the shop to frame. This time I had two pieces ready for framing. Here is My Ways by La D Da....
I just love the little daisy-like pattern on this one! When I laid eyes on it I knew it was the one.
Next up is the frame I chose for I Sew'd My Heart by Beth Twist at Heartstring Samplery.
I was so glad to have Catherine, Brett and Anna there to help me decide on the frames. Thanks so much girls!
Lastly tonight I will leave you with my latest finish. During this week I have tried to spend the majority of my time studying for the tests I will need to pass in order to work at Salem Nuclear. The tests are good for a year so I am required to take them about every other outage. It's very nerve-wracking for me because I only got in to this business a couple years ago while Masterchief doesn't need to study at all because he's been doing this forever. He's such a smarty pants (tongue sticking out, fingers waving from my ears). I managed to fit a few stitches in at night before going to bed.
It's Praise God by La D Da. I think I will try to frame this one myself. I will not be stitching anything else now until I go home again in mid November.
Well I need to get going and fix something for Masterchief's dinner. I have had to get creative for our meals since living in a hotel. We aren't staying in a room that has a kitchenette so it's microwave all the way! Tonight it's ham slices lightly warmed with instant mashed taties and canned beets.
Thanks for visiting with me today. Until I can pass my needle through linen again, please cross and X for me, won't you?
