New stuff!

I cannot find the battery charger to my camera!!  Which means I have not been able to take pictures for the last two weeks!  Arghh!

As per usual, I was pinning (Pinterest) this morning...and so many great new cross-stitch designs are coming out for market this weekend and I can post my away we go!!!!!

First up is Gather Ye Tulips by Heartstring Samplery.  Love this!  So unique and totally cool!

Peter & Peep from With Thy Needle and Thread.  Adorable and folk arty all at the same time!

Chessie's Alpahbet Notebook by Chessie and Me.  I asked Cathy from Inspired Needle to bring this back from market for me.

My #1 can't wait for is books of projects by Blackbird Design.  I keep saying that Barb and Alma need to just design quilts for the next ten years so I can stitch all of the designs of theirs that I love and not be tempted by more.  On the other I crazy???  The joy of new releases from them is enough to keep me alive.

I love, love, love Threadwork Primitives.  Here is a new offering from Nan.  It is called Chelsea's Pinkeep. 

I also love her Sampler and Heart pinkeep.

Another thing I am really excited about is that I joined the Prim Sisters Club through Country Sampler shop in Spring Green, Wisconsin.

They announced the first design.  It is by Pineberry Lane.  I LOVE it!!!!!!!

There may be a few spots left, but it was close to being full so if you are interested call right away.

Well, I feel a little less panicked about my lost camera battery.  I could do about 40 posts from my Pinterest page!!!

Have a great weekend!!!!

Good Old Vera!

Recently I went to the Vera Bradley outlet store.  VB sent me a $20 gift card for my birthday!  They are such a nice company.  Anyway, I did not want to spend a lot more than $20.00 because I have been buying stash like a banshee and I really need to stop spending money, BUT, one does not let $20 in Vera money go to waste!

So, I was looking at the lower priced items with an eye towards using them for some kind of stitching purpose. Pictured above is the 17" laptop case.  They have a 15" one too.  At the VB outlet these are in the $25-$30 range.  So, I bought the 17" size in Twirly Bird Pink and I am going to use it as a project bag!!!  Won't it be just divine to travel with my project in such a nifty container???  So, if you have every Vera bag you want and you just have to spend more money is a great idea!!!!
