A good day of shopping

Good Evening!!

Anna and I spent the day on Thursday in Wisconsin visiting three needleshops
The first one was Country Sampler in Spring Green

We had lunch at Rookies

Then is was on to Mt Horeb to Witchery Stitchery

See the sampler on the lupin linen, Anna kitted it up. It was the first thing that caught my eye
I can't remember the name, but the designer is Rosewood Manor

Then back to madison to visit Lynn's of Madison

I forgot to take pictures there.

Each needleshop was terrific in it's own way, different charts and fibers

This is the stash I picked up

40ct lt vintage examplar for Christmas Garden (maybe, having second thoughts) w/ CC threads, charcoal linen for Colonial Garden and two packages of chenille

Dead Man's Chess

Sledding in Connecticut, Proverbs 31:13 and Oh Christmas Tree, a trade I did with Cathy(pumpkin patch) for Sergei that got tossed in there

It was a fun day.

Thanks for stopping by and Thanks to all that commented on Easter Parade

Good Night!!!

Road Trip Minnesota

Happy Wednesday!!!

A short road trip took us this past weekend to Bloomington, Mn.

to the..

I uploaded more photo's of the inside of the mall, but they are coming out sideways, urgh!!!

We visited a Cabela's store,

Look at these silly girls, Yes! they are with me

I have no idea who that man is, he just whipped around the corner to get in the snap

Then we headed to...

OMGosh! this store has the most models I have ever seen in a store. And all the accessories for your stitching needs, its so awesome.
I did get a few things...

Four charts were fifty cents with green stitckers, 30ct confederate Gray and 32ct pecan butter linen, two charts from With Thy Needle & Thread.

I did see two OOP BBD Loose Feathers there, they were #2 With My Needle and #4 Pumpkin Blossom Needle Case, so if you are looking for them you better make a call fast.

Here's an update of Molly that I started on New Years Day

It sounds like we have a major snow storm coming our way to northern Illinois tomorrow, stitch time is all I'm thinking of, lol

They are saying 4-6 inches, yay!!!

My plans...

I need to finish Sergei and start Easter Parade

Happy Stitching!!!!!
