Gentle Friends we've made it to another another Friday and the weekend is here. We really have no plans - just the usual running around, stopping off for breakfast somewhere, dealing with the grocery store and then on to the thrift/consignment shops. I got emails for at least two Estate Sales I may have to stop in and check out. Today let me catch you up on last weeks Thrift/Consignment/Estate Sale buys....
.... at an Estate Sale there were a few shelves of DVD's that I couldn't resist. Most of them were of the "Horror/Comic Book Action/Thriller" Genre so I passed on the bulk of titles, but the ones I did pick up I am happy with. I also found a book and a cookbook from the great Masterpiece Series "Upstairs Downstairs." It is written as if Mrs. Bridges wrote them, there are little antidotes from the show, a fun little book - and Rico found the nice Icon of St Paul - over all a pretty good haul.
I took part in an HOE Ornament Exchange and my partner, Lynn - from over at OK Stitching News That Counts - The only parameter in the Exchange was that it be a Prairie Schooler Design, and Lynn picked a wonderful design.....
... this is the Church from Book 14 "Holiday Homestead" - it is stitched on a piece of stash linen using the recommended DMC thread, and filled with the most delicious lavender from Lynn's on garden. What a super piece and it will look great with all my stitched ornaments. Thanks so much Lynn!!!!
...... and I thought I would leave off the week with an quick update snap of the LK "Hallowe'en Mystery" sampler.....
... as you can see I made a slight change in the flowers, they are supposed to be done in the light "Honeysuckle" floss, but that was not working for me so I just frogged the pale yellow and then finished them off with the "Bullfrog" that the main stem was done in - and now they don't pop off the linen. it looks like I am getting down to all that satin stitching and attaching the bits and pieces, it wont be long before I have this sucker all wrapped up.
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again.... have a super weekend!!
