Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I was so happy to read all the lovely comments about yesterdays post. I often worry about repeating myself - and the photos I post. My life or I should say our lives here in San Francisco are so regular and even. We do the same things and go to the same places all the time. We eat out at the same places shop in the same stores over and over..... Not that I'm complaining - I am just pointing out how boring I think it would look to someone not in my shoes. Last evening we where watching the Cooking Channel and Emeril Lagasse was hosting a show that travels around to different cities and he was visiting SF. A couple of the places he visited I have been to and a couple where places I want to go - this city is so big we need to start getting to a new place at least once a month - I have made the decision!! First up is we need to get over to that cafe on Nob Hill and try some of that Irish coffee he was talking about!!!!!
I'll have a camera!
The first stitchin' bit is as snap of my very own sampler.....
... or at least the linen - 36ct BoF "Sandpiper" - and most of the floss colours I am using. I started in on the border and may just have to change one of the floss colours now that I see it stitched up.
The second bit is a new chart that came out at the recent show in Baltimore. Now, I told myself that I certainly need never buy a chart ever again (who am I kidding!!) and most of the new things coming out I can resist - except - this piece. It is called Quaker Christmas II - Songs of the Season. Here is a picture...
This has two things in it's favour... it is Quakery and it is musical - I especially love Christmas music!! Now I know the problems with ByGone Stitches charts little issues here and there, but I loved the first Quaker Christmas!!! and I know I will love this one!!
There you go sports fans - thanks for stopping by, do come again!!
