I've come to the conclusion that I really need to stay away from sit and stitch gatherings that involve me being in a needlework store. Last night I was at one and I had to get a few threads for the Shaker Spool Holder from Sampler & Antique Needlework and the 50% off box was calling my name from across the store. The Scare crow Wabbit from Sheeping Designs is something I've been eyeing for a while and there it was I just couldn't pass it up ;) Then just as I thought I was making a break for the register I spotted the New Charts... Ooooh new Drawn Thread :) I've seen this Red Lace needlecase a few times and always thought it was cool and I could... not... resist LOL! Like I really need anymore charts.
Last night at sit and stitch I brought my stitching pocket along. I think several of the ladies wanted to check to see if I had a fever for working black on black. I really wonder what I was smoking when I thought this would be a good idea as it is going to make me go blind but it WILL look fabulous when its finished. I got the outline stitching done on the outside one now I have to repeat the process on the other piece of linen for the inside. After that there's only a small bit of stitching left before I can finish it.
