Last night was a perfect night! I am loving all of these perfect times coming my way. On the first Tuesday evening of each month there is a stitching night at my local and wonderful cross-stitch shop, Inspired Needle, in Lemont, Illinois.
There were several women who attended and all of them were so nice and fun! We looked through all of the great charts that Kathy has (by the way, she has the most unique and cool stuff that you will not find anywhere else!). People were finding things that had been on their wish list for years and had not been able to get before. I bought the Shepard's Bush Mermaid Sampler because I have been wanting to try an SB pattern. This one was attractive to me because it is small and I love the color of the material.
The BBD pattern pictured above is one I saw on someone's blog and fell in love with. It looks so much better in real life than it does on the pattern. That was a lucky find!
One of Kathy's friends came in with "Imagine" finished on a different colored fabric and it was so cool. I ordered the fabric right up and brought home the pattern. Love the little girl skipping rope!
Kathy's shop is THE BEST! I wish I could go there once a week to sit and stitch! It was great to be with some other addicted people and share in the joy everyone was feeling! I love to be with people who are passionate about their hobbies!
