Speaking of weekends, I am off tomorrow to Houston where I will visit my dear friend Kerri. She is my travel buddy. We have taken 2 trips to Elegant Stitch retreats together, and are very compatible. We have tons of fun together & I am looking forward to this weekend like crazy. We are going to the Quilt Show - I am sure I will buy things I don't need, but since our moving poundage just got upped by the Army ( 16,000 lbs - WHO has that much???), a little indulgence is called for!
Since we are on the subject of Stash here is my armoire that now holds everything stitching related I will take with me - tadaaaa:
Ok, well there is a little bit more in here:
And just a wee bit more here:
Oh, I forgot to mention my stitching basket, which at this point will remain a mystery since it is a mess. Geeze, now that I think about it there is that basket on the other side of my stitching chair with some of WIP/UFOs ( the only reason they slip into the UFO category is because I am such a sloooooow stitcher).
Now that I have mentioned WIPs - here are the few that are getting any attention at this time. Giving up on waiting for a nice sunny day to take artistic pictures, I am admitting defeat, & just taking pics by the patio door to get some natural light on them. First is the newest Christmas Ornie by Milady's Needle which was released during the Online Needlework Show - I am stitching it off a draft since I begged Gloria to let me have it early so it would have a snowball's change in "you know where" of getting done for Christmas. This one is for Adam, my 13 yo son who always gets an ornie with an animal on it. This one eventually will have 2 deer in the middle. This is stitched with Belle Soi on 35 Ct. Vikki Clayton linen. It is so darling. Oh dear, it is also sideways, I rotated it in the original file, but it keeps importing sideways & I am tired of messing with it.
Next is a Prairie Schooler Santa for my oldest son also on Vikki Clayton linen:
Finally here is Jenny Bean, who has not seen the light of day in a week.
So that is it for today. Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend.
