Romantic Weekend

This weekend my husband and I went on a romantic trip to Columbus. I call it romantic because it was Valentine’s weekend.

We managed to do a ton of things on our 4 day weekend, including the Franklin Conservatory (for wine & chocolate night) and the Columbus Zoo (in the snow, we had the park to ourselves basically, it was wonderful)!

Of course I had to look up cross stitch shops and lucky for me there was one! I called ahead to make sure they were in before we made the trip on Saturday (since the Nashville market was this weekend too, I wasn’t sure if they were going to be open). The picture above shows what I purchased!

The beads are for the Glendon Place project I posted about not too long ago and the threads were all on the suggested colors list for a bunch of Little House Needlework patterns I have hanging out in my stash. I needed some new needles so I picked up the Bolin ones (new to me, I’m loving them so far, they have a HUGE eye which is great).

For February’s stitch from stash challenge I added $16.20 this weekend (the needles don’t count against me since I did actually need them, and I would have had them on hand anyway).

I have two more posts in the works so I will leave off here with the question on how you are doing on the stitch from stash challenge? It’s only month 2, 10 more to go!
