Stashing and Stitching

I had a fun day of stitching, chatting and shopping at Amy's yesterday. It was so nice to get away from it all for a day. I got a couple of Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterlies (Fall '11 and Spring '12) and two pieces of 40 ct. linen (Vintage Lt. Examplar and Antique White) from her online shop, Down Sunshine Lane.



While there, I worked on "Be Kind and True" a little bit.



After I get the house cleaned, I plan to get back to Sarah. I need to catch up to Faye and Margaret! :)
