Last Saturday my friend Diane came over to check out Inspired Needle and then to my house for stitching. My Mom came over too. Of course, we had to do show and tell. Above and below are projects from Prairie Schooler's Chasing Cobwebs that Diane did. Love them!!! Doing them myself as soon as the chart gets into Inspired Needle (the greatest cross stitch shop ever!).
Lookie there!!!! Diane got the new Vera Bradley Folkloric pattern!!! I love it!! We grew up together in the 1970's and I think this purse is an updated version of 70's style. Putting it on my list of things to get!
Okay, about 15 years ago Diane started these seasons from Prairie Schooler. I think she had 3 done and a good start on the 4th one when she pulled these out last Fall. She has a finish folks!
Diane purchased her first Needle Minder. Of course now that she has the bee hive I feel that I must get a bee hive!!! Even though I already have two (acorn and sheep); which means that I definitely do not need any more.
My Mom spent the afternoon knitting. I really should have taken a pic of her work in progress; but I think she just started it. Below is a project she is going to do soon. Best news of all; she said she is going to do it twice.....one for Mom and one for daughter!
Below is our obligatory Blizzard of 2011 shot. This was the day after our blizzard. Mike shoveled for hours. He refuses to get a snow blower. I nervously watched out the window as my participation. The night before was so crazy. We put our chairs in front of the window and just watched the howling wind, drifting and blowing snow. Very entertaining.
