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!!!

Hi Ranae!! We missed you last Sunday at IN! How fun- Country Sampler- isn't it great? Mt. Horeb- how close is that to Madison and Country Sampler? I visited the town when I was younger- would love to go back though. Happy Stitching...
