Hey! I had a wonderful time yesterday with my stitching group! And I was totally wrong about what anniversary the Chickadee Guild was celebrating, it was actually their 30th anniversary. They are a lovely group of talented ladies and I am happy we decided to go over and celebrate with the.
I also had a very good time shopping at Because You Count, I was able to get the fabric and threads for Plum Streets Samplers 12 Days of Christmas freebie. I can't wait to get a start on this one. 4 or 5 of us from the guild are all planning to stitch this so it will be fun to stitch along in person instead of just over the internet. I wasn't able to get the called for threads but I am pretty happy with the 2 I chose and I really wanted to try 40ct so wish me luck on that.
In the 50% off bin I found these 2 jems! $1.60 each! And there was at least 1 left but it was the same as one of these and there was also a few other Prairie Schooler charts. Great find as this designer is retirering. So if you are in Moncton have a peek or if you are not I do know that Because You Count will mail an order to you at actually shipping cost.
I have decided to stitch Celtic Christmas for a Lavender and Lace SAL starting in the new year and while I was looking at conversions I fell in love with this one. I don't know if I am prepared for the amount of work it is going to be but I bought the metallic and Wisper thread I will need and 4 out of the 5 beads. So I feel like I am committing even though the thought of it is scaring me.
These are some of the thread for Halloween Rules by Lizzie*Kate. Sorry for the cruddy picture they are really much more bright
