The hidden stash...

Ooh, I forgot to post about the stash I got while visiting my MIL last Saturday. I found a new LNS called Nantz Needlework in Holiday, FL. When I walked in there was several ladies stitching and they were all talking at once! They seemed like a very friendly group. I'd love to go back and stitch with them sometime. Anyway, I picked up a few charts while I was there...

I got Blackbird Designs Loose Feather #10 "Autumn Silhouette", LHN "ABC123" and "Pinetop Lodge," and Drawn Thread "12 Houses Sampler." It was a cute little shop and the owner was very friendly. I also got my "Jingle" kit from Elegant Stitch today - it's so cute! I'm seriously thinking of stitching this before Christmas...

I can't wait to get my Brightneedle class project! I think it's going to be a fun project. And I think I know one of my presents from my MIL that will help with the over one. One day I was looking at a Jo-Ann's add at her house and saw an Ott-lite magnifier lamp and said I'd like that for Christmas (not to her - I was basically just thinking out loud). I didn't mean for her to get it, but I think she did because when I was over there last time I saw a box with my name on it that looked like the right size. So even though I didn't mean for her to get it I'm still excited! I'm such a child! :)

Speaking of child - my child, my six year old, picked out Charlotte's Web today at the book store. It almost brought tears of nostalgia to my eyes. I remember when I was a little older than him and my mom let me pick out Charlotte's Web at a bookstore in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I remember it like it was yesterday. I remember how excited I was to have that book. It was so sweet hearing him read it to himself in a little whispery voice. I let him get the hardcover. I just think that's a book worth getting in the hardcover - it will hopefully last him a lifetime.

Ok, this is a very long post - and I guess I'm typing because I'm not in a stitching or knitting mood right now. Matthew is still fussy, although sleeping right now, I really hope it's just a phase he's going through!


  1. Hi Nicole, Yes, I will be stitching And A Forest Grew very soon. I plan to make it my January 1st start - still need to pick up the floss for it, and will be using a 40 ct linen, likely something by Lakeside Linens, I have several in my stash. I plan to stitch either 1 or even 2 nights a week on it - I just adore it!

  2. You'll have to take him to see the movie!
