I bought these two new BBD charts too. Don't know when I will stitch them; but one has to have them to ogle don't you agree????
I did not intend to start another series. However, did you see the upcoming release for the LHN Christmas village??? It is a train station. I saw that and I was in!!!! Love, love, love trains and Christmas time. My friend Teresa had the idea of stitching all or part of the series in a straight line on one piece of fabric. Of course, that means I will be doing the same thing. We got some 30 count Northern Cross fabric to stitch on. I love the look and feel of this fabric.
That led to kitting up this LHN sheep virtue with the same fabric. I did not buy the first one in the series; but that may change.
This is not a new chart; but I recently saw it done on linen (instead of perforated paper) on the Inspired Stitcher's blog!!! Gorgeous! Click here to see it on her blog. It was just so cool looking on the linen; had to add this to the stash.
Here is my progress so far on my Santa's village, Poinsettia House. I also got the next one in the series. Mrs. Claus' cookie house.
My friend Brenda has these cool needle minders......whale and spool of thread. I have admired them for months. Our friend Teresa went online and found where they are sold in England.....so we all ordered various ones. These are the two I got. Love!!! Here is a link to the shop: CLICK HERE
Teresa made this amazing scissor keeper for each of us at Christmas. Isn't it just too, too gorgeous!!!!!!!!! She included the gorgeous scissors too!!!
All of the pictures up until this one really look cool, crisp, clean and uncluttered don't they???????? Well, here is the real truth. This is the table next to my stitching seat. What a mess! I should really go straighten that up before I start stitching today!!
Hope everyone has a good Sunday and a great week!
