I am spending the evening listening to "The Host" by Stephanie Meyers and stitching. I read the Twilight Saga and wanted to read The Host but it is such a thick book. I don't have a Kindle but, I found it in an audio book. it has 18 CD's. I also found Rhett Butler's People.
The Drawn Thread
32 Count Antique White Linen
I took the first picture this morning and it turned out real well. The second one I took later after I finished the band looks like crap.
The next band has butterflies or dragonflies (?) and no speciality stitches except satin stitch so I am kind of anxious to start on it.
I didn't have any luck finding the Samplers & Antique Needlework magazine. Looks like the only way you can get it is by subscribing.
I did get the latest issue of Cross-Stitch & Needlework. It has an Irish Blessing Sampler on the cover designed by Linda Bird. I would like to find time to stitch it by St, Patricks Day. There is a beautiful Spring Morning Sampler by Karen Kluba 0f Rosewood Manor.
I won a piece of Lakeside Linens Pearled Barley on Ebay. I am not sure what I will stitch on it, but can't wait to start, it is so luscious. I also won a beautiful Shepherd's Bush kit. It has beautiful silk threads and 32 count hand-dyed linen--French Vanilla. This is going to be so much fun. I can't believe I got a $60.00 kit for $21.00. I just couldn't pass it up knowing that I have my Crazy Fifteen to stitch. I am just going to have to squeeze in one more.
