I don't have OCD

because I continue to stitch on "Their Song" and it doesn't bother me one bit, if it'll have bleeding flaws. I love the old and primitive look anyway
Here is Kellie at her 8th grade banquet with just a few of her friends




Hot Springs, Arkansas
The_Shepherd's_Needle Little Rock, Arkansas
Look! no customers


Oh! Here they are

Anna and I
This store was fabulous and the owner even better.
I bought Jenny Bean Pin Tuffet and the pedestal for it


Next up Anna and I hit the The Stitcher's Garden in Conway Arkansas.
I bought some older PS for half price 4.00 each

Anna and I got into a traffic jam from an accident of some sort, so missed had to miss one other needleshop. We had to make it back to Hot Springs in time to see the guys live weigh-in.

Here is DH with FLW host Charlie Evans and Ranger Boats Forest Wood.


Dan come in #20 out of 55 boaters. I forget now what his total weigh was for the days. Did anyone see him live on FLWoutdoors.com? This one airs on November 28th. He won't be on that one because he didn't place 1st to be in the Forest Wood Cup Tournament.

This was really a neat experience to be up close to the stage, lights and camera's. Kellie and I had a great time in Hot Springs with Anna. Her better half was there too as a co-angler. Dan just happen to know him from Wisconsin fishing tourneys. So we got to hang out and explore, while the guys did their fishing thing.

We plan to keep in touch and get together to stitch or shop. She even showed me how to thread my needle by wrapping it around my finger, too cool!

That's it for this post.

I am so far behind, like 600 post. I try to catch up a little here and there by reading and commenting, so please bear with me.

Nite-nite!!!!

Glad you have decided to carry on with Their Song. Great pics of your trip. x

Their Song is coming along nicely, you could always 'bleed' the rest of it for a distressed look when you finished and no-one would be the wiser. How cool that you met Anna and plan to keep in touch, you will have to get her to start a blog. There is some lovely new stash there, I wish that I had a shop like that near me, ohperhaps not such a good idea especially for the budget.

Christine said...

Sounds like a fun trip. Their song looks great just as it is, I can't actually pick out the "bleed" in that picture

Nancy said...

Their Song looks beautiful, and good for you that the bleeding doesn't bother you! Way back when they wouldn't have started a sampler over if there was a flaw so it makes it authentic. I love your picture with the cherries.

Your daughter looks so pretty! Oh how I wish I could go to a needlework shop like that! We don't have one where I am unless you drive for two hours.

Good for you for continuing on with the BBD piece. There was bleeding on one of my pieces too, but I continued with it and finished it and it looks like it was meant to look that way! Love the pics of your daughter. And the LNS trip -- great stuff!

Sherry said...

The stitching looks great. You can even add some juice from those luscious looking cherries for authenticity.

You daughter is a doll. And that shop looks terrific.. I envy you.

Love the cherries photographed with your WIP, clever idea.

Sounds like a fun trip for all, great new stash too.

Your daughter is lovely!

Looks like you had a wonderful trip, Ranae--half-price Prairie Schoolers!!! Woo hoo!!

I love "Their Song" and I agree that the bleeding will just add to the wonderful rustic, well-loved look that you're going for...

Congratulations to your darling daughter on her 8th grade graduation!

Siobhan said...

Your daughter is a cutie patootie! :) Congrats to your husband! I am so glad that you have a stitching buddy to hang with--it looks like you guys had a blast. I was just over at Michelle's (Cozy Egg) blog admiring her Jenny Bean tuffet--omg. I must get that for myself! Love the progress on Their Song.

Linda said...

I'm glad you decided to continue. I need to get back into cross stitching because I haven't done much lately. Where do you get your patterns? I think I would like to try the Prairie Schooler. Looks like you had a great trip. Thanks for sharing!
