Well, I kind of got off schedule. Instead of working on my rotation from Tuesday on I started Crocheting. I started an afghan kind of like this one made by Alicia from Posie Gets Cozy (except not as pretty). I actually started and restarted about three or four times. My ripples weren't lining up. It was pretty sad and that is why there was no stitching for a few days - I was just obsessed with getting ripples to line up. Well, I finally got it right, and I didn't take a picture because it's in my trunk and it's too cold to go out and get it (yes, I'm a big baby - cold here in FL is about 45 degrees - if that). I do have pictures of other things...

Friday I took a class with Susan Greening Davis at Golden Needle. It was a lot of fun - went way too fast, but was fun! Here's what I got done there...

And it was Nashville Night, so of course I had to pick up a few new things that were out...

I love the new Blackbird Designs Book. It has so many pretty designs. Here are a few of my favorites...

I got back on my rotation schedule today at JoAnne Nantz's with My Earth. I got a band and a sheepie stitched...

Well, that's all for now! It's time for bed now! :) Write later!


  1. Thanks for sharing pics of the new Blackbird Designs book. I love the look of 'Bluebird's Needles & Pins', especially the ric-rac. Too cute!!

  2. Ditto what Dot said! Thanks for the pictures - it looks really worth getting :)

  3. I think I'm going to have to get the BD book too - I do like the Quaker House and Sheltering Vine. Thanks for sharing the extra pics.

  4. I like that BBD book too. I love the Sheltering Vine design. I took a class with Susan Greening Davis a couple of years ago and just loved it and her!

  5. Great stash! I got the BD book too. Isn't it fabulous! I have Gathering Thread on order as well. We have similar tastes!
