It was really nice to spend another evening with the mermaids tonight :-) They seem to be bringing some very good luck to the Red Sox right now (they won their 11th straight game in a row tonight), so I am wondering if I should give them another night tomorrow?? LOL!! I am inclined to put time in on Mermaid Heaven, though. We'll just have to see...
This is for Carissa ~ this is my floss toss for Ellen Chester's An Emblem of Love, which we will start as a SAL together in mid-July on Mondays. Anyone want to join us?? My fabric is Lakeside Linens 40 ct Vintage Bittersweet. Hard to describe this color - it is a cream linen with a rose tone to it, but you really wouldn't call it a "pink linen."
I got another new chart today - I am getting smarter now about buying Blackbird Designs charts before they discontinue them.... they sure go out of print quickly!! I love this Christmas sampler, Blessings Be Thine. I am not a big fan of Christmas stitching, but I just couldn't resist! I dug through my stash of fabrics and found a perfect piece for this. I will use my Acorns & Chestnuts belfast linen by Sugar Maple Fabrics. I almost put needle and thread to the linen tonight, but I reminded (and scolded) myself that I just cannot do that right now! My sidebar here in my blog will surely show you why - way, way too many WIPS going right now!!
