Elegant Stitch

I received my fabric yesterday from Elegant Stitch yesterday. They dyed it on Tuesday and got it to me just four days after that! Now that's service! I ended up ordering 40 ct. Elegant Bean for "And They Sinned." They no longer make the fabric I ordered (35 ct. Brimstone) and that's probably a good thing because I really like this fabric!

Now I just can't wait for the SAL to begin in June! I wasn't able to go stitching yesterday because my FIL is still recovering from some surgeries he had last month. Hopefully he'll be doing better soon. Dh did let me escape for a little bit before he went to work and I decided to run down to Golden Needle. He said he didn't care what I spent because it would be my Mother's Day present (that may have been a mistake)! :)

Mother's Day Stash!!

I got several charts I haven't seen anywhere else. La-D-Da "Mocking Bird," "Bushel & Peck," and "Miss Mary Mack" (which I love). I got some 40 ct. Vintage Examplar to stitch her on.

I also got two Brightneedle charts "Elizabethan Garden Sampler" and "Strawberry House," which I never noticed until I saw it yesterday, but I think it's so cute!

And I picked up a few new ones that I didn't have yet. Lizzie Kate "A Bit of June and July" and Little House Needleworks "Sampler Girl." They also had the limited Edition "Amercana Samplings" kit from 2005, so I picked that up too. :) Surprisingly I did put several things back. I know I went a little crazy, but it could've been worse! Dh is the greatest! I told him when Father's Day comes around next month he can go crazy at the tackle shop! :)

Well, not much else going on! We had a nice lunch today with my Brother, SIL and my niece Halle. We all kept yawning though, so they didn't stay long. I should've taken a nap, but decided to blog instead. :) Now I'm going to rest! Maybe watch "The Queen." Write later!

Mother's Day Roses for my mom from my brother.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there!
