Lazy Sunday

I took a shower and put clean pajamas on. It's just one of those days to laze around. I have been cleaning and doing laundry. But I've also been watching some baseball games (Tampa Bay lost and the Braves are losing unfortunately). I've also been reading my blogs. I saw that Andrea has started Drawn Thread's Sanctuary. Her stitching is so neat and pretty. She is really an inspiration to me! It made me remember that I've had Sanctuary kitted forever! So I got it out and pulled the silks and linen and took their picture because they are so pretty!

Drawn Thread Sanctuary with silks and fabric

Caron Collection and NPI Silk with 32 Ct. Elegant Bean Linen

The fabric is 32 ct. Elegant Bean from Elegant Stitch. I don't think I'm going to start this now, I was just in the mood to look at it. :)

I did go stitching yesterday. I signed up for a thing they do called "Stitches & Wishes." We have a secret partner and once a month we get them something off their wish list. I got a $20 gift certificate, which was very nice! And I'm in the process of getting their package together. I love doing stuff like this. I think I almost like giving a package more than receiving one. It's fun to get all the little goodies together. Anyway, I did pick up a new chart and a couple of silks while I was there...

A Diminutive Dutch Sampler

silks for Diminutive Dutch Sampler on 40 ct. R&R linen.

It's Barrick Samplers (now Carriage House Samplings) "A Diminutive Dutch Sampler." I'm missing one silk, which I'll probably get tomorrow. The fabric is the 40 ct. R&R I got from Handcrafts Online. It's so funny because Niky just posted her finished sampler today. What a coincidence!

I did stitch a little while I was there. I thought I would work on "A Bit of May." May is one of my favorites out of all the months. I love the color combinations.

"A Bit of May"

Well, not much else going on here. Bradley is finally over the stomach bug he had. He was able to eat normal food today. I'm still hoping no one else gets it!! Thank you everyone for all your nice comments, they really mean a lot! :) Write later!
