Hope January is treating everyone well! I've had a good one so far.
I won a Little House Needlework pattern from CJ over at Tea-n-Stitches! I think the card is handmade too, which is totally awesome!
I also had $50 to spend over at 123stitch so I picked up the following:
Watercolors and Wildflowers cottons for some hardanger, the thinner strands look like they could be used for cross stitch too. Has anyone used them?!? The Watercolors seem to be thicker than the DMC pearl #5, maybe I need to pick up some smaller count fabric? I don't know, I'm still trying to figure this hardanger thing out!
Some cute valentines day charts (the other one was out of stock, hopefully it'll come later this week), black anchor, a heart button for a different chart as well as some snowflake charms.
This Weeks Dye Works fabric was on clearance too:
Then The Drawn Thread released some new patterns that I just had to have:
I bought the full kit for both of them. I'm hoping to do the Love Birds one for my husband for V-Day.
I also have some progress (this was as of Sunday afternoon), Plum Pudding:
and Winter Wishes:
I also purchased a LOWERY STAND. I'm so excited. It arrived Wednesday last week so I've been using it with Plum Pudding and trying out two handed stitching. It's been going well as long as I pick up the correct color. Whoops! I'll try to do a review for everyone if they are interested after I've used it more than a week.
Does any one else use a needlework stand?
