Blogoversary secret revealed

Happy Sunday!!
I heard from Julie across the pond that she received my stitchy gift.
La D Da freebie

You can hop over there and see the rest of the package I put together for her.

And I heard from Sharon that she received a beaded scissors FOB. You can hop over there for a photo of that, if you already haven't seen it.

The city where I go to shop just opened a new library branch on that side of town, woohoo!!

I went there yesterday and picked up a few good books. Here are the stitchy related books.

Birds And Beast by Hugh Ehrman & Elizabeth Benn

Gloucestershire Hen Pheasant by Ann Blockly

Flowers, Birds & Unicorns by Candace Bahouth

The Medieval Hunting Rug

English Garden Embroidery by Stafford Whiteaker

Lots and lots of eye candy, And even though they are needlepoint, they can easily be worked cross stitch. Good thing I have these books for 3 weeks.


1.. You walk pasta da bakery.

2.... You walka pasta da candy store.

3.. You walka pasta da Ice Cream shop.

4.. You walka pasta da fridge.

You will lose weight!

The most wasted day of all is that in which you have not laughed

(author unknown)

It has been raining for two days straight here. I haven't even picked up needle and floss.

Thank you! Thank You! for all your precious comments.

*Melanie, I see you leave me comments, but can't find your blog link.

Happy stitching!!
