I got an email from Amanda tonight letting me know that her birthday gift from me finally arrived. Mike posted it to her on Thursday, and it only had to go to Maine. The postal holiday on Saturday slowed it down a bit, but I think it did get there before her birthday, which I think is actually tomorrow... I knew Amanda liked fantasy designs, and I had a lot of fun coordinating this one for her. Here it is:
I visited The World in Stitches today for the first time in many months. Every time I go there they have a stunning trunk show by a popular designer. Last time I went, they had Little House Needleworks. The time before that, they had Patricia-Ann Designs. Today, they had Rosewood Manor. Oh ladies, the model for And A Forest Grew is simply amazing! If you are near TWIS, you might want to stop in and see it (Littleton, Massachusetts). While I was there, I picked up Needleprint's Sarah Moon's Quaker Sampler. Randi had three of the Ackworth Samplers charts there today - it was impossible to make a decision!! But, I did finally choose this one. Now I have yet another huge sampler to put in my pile to do!! I think I really want the companion to the Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler too.... next time... :-)
My Silkweaver FOTM came in yesterday - I am thrilled to bits that they sent Intrigue this month! I have been hoping for that one for quite some time now, and seeing it in reality was no disappointment! After two months of linens that did not appeal to my tastes very much (Autumn Sunrise and, I think, Sundown) this was a real treat. Thanks Silkweaver!!
New DVD Release Tuesday, and it was a big one - The Da Vinci Code - we already thoroughly enjoyed watching this one tonight!
