I have one finish this week but a final finish will have to wait while I get my house back in order!
I also want to thank Jeanie, one of my sweet readers, who sent me a Valentine with two freebie Valentines Day charts in it. I had mailed her a copy of a freebie that many were having a hard time finding and she so sweetly responded. Another reason I love our Stitching Community. It is full of wonderful needleworkers.
Robin in Virginia asked how I like Colour and Cotton threads. I really do like them Robin. I have been a member of their floss club for about a year now and I have built up a nice supply of their flosses. I do wish Amanda would do more reds. That would be my only complaint. I am wondering if red is harder to work with in the dying process. Colour and Cotton flosses have a lot more thread than Gentle Arts and Weeks Dye Works. So to me, they are a good value as well.
It seems that FARM is the big trend in cross stitch right now. This suits me fine as I am doing some farm themed pieces for Grimmwood.
My sisters gave me this one...
And here is my recent farm stitch..
I have to share this pattern...not farm at all...but...
And I am sure by now all you stitchers know that Lizzie Kate is retiring. Boo Hoo. I understand they have been designing for years and years and the time has come to enjoy life but I will miss them. They will put out one last design at Market...their Spring smalls which will complete that series. I am calling Marlene at the Cross Stitch Peddler to get my name on the list for that chart.
Happy Stitching Friends. Have a good weekend.
