I love shopping

Happy gloomy Saturday!!!

Yesterday I took a ride up to Anna's part of the woods in Wisconsin... to shop
We went to Lynn's of Madison and Country Sampler in Spring Green. This is my purchase
32ct jobelan white for the Jardin bee pincushion, old crow Belle Soie
Two frames one for Garden of Eerie and the green one for Dashing Thru the Snow by BOAF

I'll just let the pictures do the talking

I just love when things are kitted, NOT!!!!!!
At Country Sampler you see the model, then you see it's all kitted up, darn it!!!!
It's so hard to resist

We also stopped at a couple resale stores, I picked up these frames and the box for as little as 6.00, great deal
The gold frame will definitely have to be painted black, I'm sure of it

I feel like I'm missing something, hmmmmm

Now with this yucky rainy weekend, should I frame or stitch? That is the question

Yes, it's a rainy Saturday here as well. I should work on finishing pieces but I find that hard to make myself do...

Good on your shop visits in Wisconsin.

Rainy here yesterday and today.
I think you should make yourself finish something.

Phyllis said...

Maybe a little of both! LOL
Great stash addition. I don't think I've seen Dashing Through The Snow by BOAF. I need to look that one up.
Have a stitch filled day!'s raining off and on here most of the day and I have a sore throat. Still trying to stitch on my silk gauze a little.

I know just what you mean, Ranae!!! I can't pass up a kitted piece either. Great, great, finds!!!!

Barb said...

I love your purchases. I could not pass them up either. I want to do the Summer at Hollyberry Farm. I loved seeing the floss colors.

Margaret said...

Great purchases!! I am a sucker for kitted up charts. lolol! I think you need to spend the weekend teaching me how to frame. I envy those of you who know how.

Great finds and very nice finishes on your last post. So that's what it's called, "kitted". That's what I do to almost every pattern I want to stitch in my lifetime.

Myra said...

Wow! You have some wonderful new additions to your stash. Let's see...I think you should frame one and then stitch a little. :o)
