My current obsession with cross-stitch continues. However, I have spent more time visiting stitching blogs and looking at designs than I have actually stitched. I think that is because I have been pooped after work; I am hoping this weekend brings the time and energy to get stitching. I plan on getting a book on tape and listening to that while I stitch this weekend.
These pictures are all from Cross My Heart in Columbus, Ohio. Last weekend my friends were kind enough to take me here even though none of them have the stitching fever. I walked into the store and declared myself in heaven. It is chock full of great samples and charts. I really could have spent several hours there.
I bought a pattern that I thought was a woman cross-stitching; but once I got in the car and read it I realized she was looking at a plan of her garden. Oh poo! I do not garden and the chart looks kind of hard. Now this week I am obsessed with two new companies, Little House Needleworks and Country Cottage Needleworks. (If I understand it right this is a Mother and Daughter team!) I had one of their designs in my hand, but since I could only buy one I decided to go with the one that would be a challenge. Wrong!!! I should have bought the Country Cottage chart. So I am on the hunt; either on the internet or if I should just happen to be in the vicinity of a cross stitch store.........
I love to see all the samples!!!! You probably cannot see it, but if you enlarge this picture do you see the Christmas Fairy who is framed with a red mat???? Someday I will stitch this!!! I loved it!
