I did it, I placed an order for all 4 pixies in my last post, plus a couple of other things that have been on my wish list for a while - including Miss Crescent's Crowne - Love Birds and All in a Heart. Those are what I ordered from Stitching Bits and Bobs, however my shopping didn't stop there! I also placed an order with Traditional Stitches (a somewhat local LNS) for the July/Aug JCS magazine as well as pre ordered the annual ornament issue, plus a couple of patterns... and my clicky finger still didn't stop... I also ordered the quilt block by Cinderberry Stitches (click here to see) for their Blue Bird of Hope quilt.
Not quite sure when I will do this, as I don't know how to quilt, but those little embroidered birdies have been calling to me for quite some time. I just love how she incorporates stitching in with her quilts. I really would love to do one of her full size quilts, but I thought since the sewing machine scares the heck out of me as it is, a small square would be a good place to start!
I will post stash pictures when it all arrives!
On to the dance part of my post... I have a happy dance to share! I finished off Home of a Needleworker too! I sort of cheated, in that I had a good 1/2 hr left of stitching when I finished for the night last night, and I didn't want to leave that little bit for next Sunday, so I finished it off today.
I really enjoyed stitching this one, and I loved the Crescent colour threads except for the white/bamboo one... somehow no matter how careful I was, when I stitched with that one, my stitches all seem to be wonky... next up starting either this Sunday or next is LHN's Neighbourhood. It will all depend on when and how I can get my supplies together. I'm really looking forward to working on this one as well.
I also have a little progress to share on my Mirabilia's Autumn in my Garden...
I'm getting pretty close to a finish with this one as well, so stay tuned for another happy dance!
