Fabric and Stash


Deb sent me some beautiful fabric to do the finishing on my Wool Needlebook. I know there are several that will look great with it! I'm so excited to get it finished now!


I also placed an order with Nordic Needle. They are the only ones I know of that have all the colors of DMC Pearl Cotton and they were having a sale. So I got the green pearl cotton and the "Autumn Stitches" leaflet and thread pack. I have been coveting that leaflet for awhile and when I saw it on sale on the Nordic Needle website I knew I couldn't resist any longer!

Well, I have decided to take the Photoshop class. I'm very excited about it. I'm so glad I decided to do it. Thank you all for your encouragement! I also got this book today. I thought I could use it as kind of a text to go with the class.

My other news is that I'm going away this weekend! Martha organized a get together for the whole weekend - Camp Stitch-A-Way! I'm very excited about it! It's going to be so great just to get away and stitch all weekend. My MIL is going to watch the kids, which is so sweet of her! I doubt there will be internet access, so I probably won't write again until Monday. See you then!


  1. Camp-Stitch-A-Way sounds like so much fun! I can't wait to see your needlebook all finished! And what fun new goodies, too!

  2. Oh wow, hope you have a great time on your weekend away. Love the stash too.

  3. Enjoy your stitching camp Nicole, sounds like fun!

  4. Have a wonderful time with your friend!
    Your MIL is very kind, isn't she!
    I'm looking forward to seeing your photoshop tecnique and also your stitching progress, too!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  5. That was wonderful of Deb to send you all those goodies to help finish your needlebook. I love pink and green, so I'm loving the fabrics she's chosen. Your picture of them looks terrific too!

    Your weekend away stitching sounds fantastic. I'm sure you'll have a great time.

    Don't you just love a needlework sale? Even better when you've been eyeing a special something.

  6. Have fun at your "camping" retreat, Nicole!

  7. Gorgeous, Nicole. Love the photos in this post - they look really professional. :)

    Enjoy the getaway!

  8. I have that chart (along with spring, summer and winter) on my wish list - it really is lovely. Yours fabric is great too.
