Wow!! When my stitching Mo Jo came back, it came back with a vengeance!!! I decided to drive up to Ceilica's Samplers in Branson to join my friends who were at the retreat. I went into the store not intending to buy anything because I really haven't been in the mood to stitch....Wow...did things change!!!!! My purchases are below....
When I got home I pulled out my Summer Ball and sat down to stitch!!! I was able to finish page 4 of Summer Ball!!! It is looking great! I pulled out the last two page and they are not as detailed as the last page. Which makes me very happy!!!!
So I spent quite a bit of money in the store! I bought this pattern at the retreat this summer....isn't that bear so cute!!!! This is Lavender and Lace -Santa in the Forest.
I didn't like the fabric so I found Silkweavers Midas Tough. I chose 32 count opalescent.
I had to make a change thought...as you can see in the picture the staff is about the same color as the fabric. So I am going to use Gold Mill Hill beads instead of fibers and will out line it with this Gold Rush color below...I think it will make it just pop!!!
My next Disney project is Puppy Love....this is just so cute!!!!
The kit comes with 14 count white aida but that is boring. I wanted to something that looked like a sunset with sparkles. I decided on Twilight from Silkweaver...it has lots of Sparkles!!!! I think this will make the perfect background fabric.
I found this chart...and it just screamed my name!!!
This was in the half-price bin...isn't it cute????
Here is another one in the sale bin...love it too!!!!!
So....what do you think of my purchases??? Any thoughts on my fabric choices for the Santa or Disney piece???
