All of the stitching is done now, and I even got a start on the beading.... going to finally have that happy dance soon!!
I received my August issue of Cross Stitch Gold today. This issue was really nice, there are some possibilities to stitch in this one... I love the secret garden piece, as well as the sunflower field :-) And, I also received the most perfect Silkweaver Jobelan Solo for Fairy Idyll - it took me forever (over a year) to find the right fabric for this one, and now I am dying to start it!
I did my shopping with my gift certificate tonight, as I saw Stitching Bits & Bobs posted another great sale - I picked up the six skeins of NPI silks I need for Victoria Sampler's new Heirloom Homecoming (I have elected to do the Rustic colourway....) and I also got Stoney Creek's very cute new Fish City chart - because who can resist that one anyway?? LOL! Thank you so much again, Jenn, for this extremely generous gift! I hope you like the choices I made :-)
