GR&DF I'm back from a 3 day hiatus. Not too much to report.
On the stitching front - I worked on a few pieces this weekend - one of them was driving me crazy so I tossed it into the "bag of no return" and put together something else - as it will eventually live elsewhere I am hoping my starting another more likable piece will be a good thing. I also worked some on "Shores" - here is a a snap of the little but I got done on Square 5...
Its a bit wonky but you get the idea.
I also finished up the "February" square on monthlies. Here is a snap of where that piece is....
I also stopped off at Borders to pick up another magazine. I have been waffling back and forth on buying the most recent issue of Cross-Stitch & Needlework. I wouldn't usually get one but they have reprinted "The American Sampler" and since it is OOP and next to impossible to acquire a copy of the chart I thought I might as well go get a copy for myself. This is what all the hub-bub is about ....
Although not really something I want to stitch anytime soon, I would rather have it in the stash heap waiting than try and find it later on at 10 times the cost it is now. This was the last copy they had so I guess it has been very popular.
The Estate Sales and Consignment Shop shopping was a total bust on Saturday. Here is a snap of the few things I picked up....
Three books and a heavy "Federal Glass" drinks glass. I loved the illustrated "Christmas Carol", and the Santa Book looks good. The "1000 Days in Tuscany" should be excellent - I am reading Marlena de Blasi's other book "Lady in the Palazzo" and really enjoying it very much!!
I think that about wraps it up for today sport's fans. Thanks again for stopping by and for your kind comments. Do come again!!!!
