Just Nan Flying Colors

Ok, I was bad again - I just can't hide it from you all! I was so happy the other day. I met up with my brother and his accountant to see how we were doing so far with Quickbooks. He was very impressed with everything I had done. It was so nice to get some positive feedback for once! I know my brother cares, he just doesn't say much. So on the way home I decided to treat myself. This is a model stitched at Silk Road Needlearts and I've always admired it. It's a ton of colors for such a little design, but they are so pretty! I also ordered a few things...

Little Witch - by Shepherd's Bush Linen and Silks for Little Witch - so yummy!

I didn't make it to that shop last night for the stitch-in. I drove almost there (over an hour) and the traffic was bumper to bumper. I'm not sure why? I don't know if it's always like that, or if something was going on. I may try taking a different way if I decide to go again, but that was just crazy! I even called ahead of time to make sure they had room, the lady must have been wondering what happened to me! :) I was on the road for over two hours (not fun!). I did get a little more stitching done on Pear Tree Inn though...
