It's Garden Spot Sampler Time

It's Tuesday again... not too many more Tuesdays to go. I wonder how my SAL mate is doing. No word from her on this sampler for about two weeks now? Is she stitching? Did she skip ahead and finish? Is she OK? I need to email her and check... Anyhow... here is mine. (Ah, she is OK :-) I just saw in her blog that she planned to work on this tonight - very cool!!).

Really not a whole lot going on here, but it is New DVD Release Tuesday again, and this week we got a fun comedy, Date Movie :-)

Oh, I cannot forget this! I was RAK'd today by my pal, Karen today - she is so amazing. She just sent me a stunning fat quarter of Silkweaver's Summer Breeze belfast - she knew how much I want to stitch Bliss Fairy on this fabric - thank you, Karen, from the bottom of my heart!

And, another friend of mine is blogging now too! Here is another fun one to read, Home Sweet Stitching - Sue is doing such a gorgeous job on CHS' My Home Town - you must see it! Nice!!! **And, a late discovery! My friend Joyce is blogging now too! She is a super prolific stitcher - you may want to visit her at M&M's and Ice Water :-) New Hampshire is active now in the blogging world - LOL!

I was so thrilled this weekend to get my FOTM invoice from Silkweaver - they are back! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!! That time went quickly, but it's just so nice to have them back again :-) And, Sugar Maple Fabrics is back to taking retail orders! Yes, the world is a better place!!!!!!!!!

Stitched on today: Garden Spot Sampler

Okay, I am very excited about a few things. Yea Joyce, I am so psyched about your blog. And Sue. This is so cool, all my friends are blogging.

Carol, I got the Women of Plymouth pattern and I ordered the Olde Willow Stitchery thread today. All that is left is the fabric which I will get this weekend. I can't wait...my first SAL!

Heather said...

Garden Spot is looking amazing Carol. That fabbie you were sent looks lovely too. Ooh I didn't know that Silkweavers were back up and running, I must order some more hand dyed linens.

Jenna said...

Wow, it's looking good! I could barely believe myself that Silkweaver is already back up and running again. I grabbed a couple of things from the odds and ends yesterday and noticed that I already received a shipment notification today! I hadn't heard that Sugar Maple fabrics is selling to the public again. YAY!

Thanks for the links - 2 new reads to add to my blogroll ;)

The Mermaids are looking gorgeous, as is MTM - I know it's a lot of work and a bit tedious for all that, but it really does look stunning! SJG is on its way to you - look out for it early next week :)

Thanks for the "chat" and advice the other day - will post an update to my blog very soon.

Kiwi Jo said...

Looking good Carol - except that you have 4.5 motifs left to stitch and I have 7!! I'll have to try to stitch faster!

You can see the light at the end of the tunnel now. I can't wait for your finish!

Nicki said...

Not much more to go :) I have some of that Summer Breeze too - it's lovely isn't it?

And such good news that SMF is selling again! Though my credit card will be groaning at the news! :)

Joyce said...

Your Garden Spot sampler is just lovely. It's one I've added to my soon-to-be-purchased wish list, thanks to you, you enabler :).

I feel like I'm famous or something, having my blog mentioned on yours. Thank you for your kind words! I'm a more prolific buyer than stitcher, however (unlike everyone else!)
