Sun Oh Sun Where Art Thou?

We have been having rain and colder temperatures the past few days. It is better than snow and ice, but I am waiting on some sunshine..
I went to LNS to pick up a couple skeins DMC. Big mistake. I have been wanting Blackbird Designs Pumpkin Time. I just love the colors in this design. Guess what I came home with?
They also had a basket with discontinued colors of Weeks Dye Works. I got 18 skeins for $4.00.


I have a little progress on Sixteen Birds by Karen Kluba of Rosewood Manor. I put Real Roses away for a while so I wouldn't get burned out on it.

 I am stitching on something for a gift. I cannot show a picture or say what it is or who it is for because I think the recipient might read my blog. I am also going to see if I can get another band finished on this one.
I am setting more goals for February.  I really would like to stitch at least one Valentine design. I would also like to finish one of my Fifteen Challenges.

Buffy and Abbey have two beds but this is the one they fight over. Neither one will sleep in the other one. Abbey settled in for a long nap while Buffy was looking so sad.

I am wishing for some sunshine here too. Love the gift piece you are working on - very pretty. Awesome buy on that Weeks too.

Deb said...

Great score on the Weeks threads! I wish we'd get some sunshine here too - all we seem to be getting is cloudy days and snow.

Now that was a great stash haul, wasn't it? There's some lovely stitching you're doing there! I'm seeing the sun today; hope you are, too.

Bargain threads, such a shame we dont have stitching shops here in the UK like you do there.
