Good Afternoon Ladies, I have to tell you about the store I visited on Saturday.It was way too cool. My dh had a job in Cyrstal Lake in by Chicago. This store Welcome Stitchery had so much cramed in a store it was just bursting :). They had mega ready made frames, fabric, kits, charts and threads. I was in there 1 hr and that wasnt enough time.I wanted everything, but I did get a stash on fabric's, which i needed so bad. I dont even have the charts for a couple fabric's I bought. I loved the Stitch Every Day series which was packed with chart, fabric and buttons, woohoo. But the two I really loved, they were out of (figures) but this is a good thing, cuz in a couple of weeks I have a reason to go back. I did buy the Bee True . I wanted the April Fools and Flip Flop Summer. They have such fun fabric colors. I bought gingham material for a couple charts, two frames, I dont know misc stuff,heres a pic. it come out a little dark b/c I took it after I got home that late afternoon and the lighting was not too good. I had so much fun, I just love my LNS though (30 mins). Jill is so helpjul and nice. I will be visiting her b4 school gets out though. I wish I had a friend to enjoy all the excitement with me. I have made a little progress with Palomino, not enough to brag about, and have not even worked on L'Autumn. I do have June Berries (BBD) ready to stitch, maybe start tonite on it. I have been so busy just going through my recent buying sprees, figuring what I need and what I dont. I do like to buy somethings online shops b/c of the sale discounts, free shipping and no tax, every little bit helps to buy another chart, lol. The other day while it was raining, a rare Common? Flicker hit our big windows and knocked it out :( The other two flickers that were playing were trying to get it up and going. I finally went out there and scared them away, so they didnt attract a cat. We watched it for awhile keeping it safe, while it came to. After it got up I snapped a close up pic.It finally did fly away. It is a beautiful bird, looks kind of roughed up from the other birds and raining. We have them in our backyard by the river, they like to dig in the dirt for bugs and larve, just like the darn moles. Let me know if you read my posts, as to I can enjoy yours. Happy Stitching!!!!
