Some Good Stuff

This past Sunday, Danielle and I met up and made our way to In Stitches for the lock in. It was a good time with yummy food and quality stitching (and shopping)!

As I had been on a bit of a stash diet lately, I went alittle crazy. I have the three charts for the birds of a feather mystery sampler so at the lockin I got all the threads needed. Now, to find the perfect fabric.

I also picked up a pack of needles and quilted garden from blue ribbon designs.

That was my first trip to the register.

See, In Stitches has all their lovely models displayed ALL over the shop. And, I mean all over. There are so many, you see something new everytime you go in.

On a previous trip to the shop to the shop I had admired a lovely sampler that is displayed, in all places, the restroom. But, alas, I was on a stash diet so I didn't ask about it. This time though I just kept telling Danielle how much I liked it, so she had to go in and see for herself. She saw a model she also liked so she went to the counter and the nice lady was able to look up the model numbers and wrote down the names and designers of the pieces we were looking for.

My second trip to the register I purchased growing like a tree by moira blackburn. A beautiful sampler, the cover picture does not do it justice. In Stitches restroom display is way better! Lol!

Well, I finally settled down to some stitching and then I see a nice lady a few chairs down with the cutest scissor fob.

My third and final trip to the register I got shepherds bush sweet stitches fob kit.

Lest you think I got nothing done but shop, I did stitch. I worked on lizzie kates snowman from last year. Almost done!

Next up, in a couple weeks, Danielle and I team back up for the retreat. Yay!!
