Sat. I didn't get many X's in at all. We had a real fun day. For over a year now, a friend of my husbands has wanted to go up to my parents house to see my dad's woodworking area. It just didn't work out until this weekend! We got up to a ground cover of snow. We called my parents & they had about 6 inches....but...away we went anyway! We ran into whiteout conditions a few times, but made it safely in just a little more time than normal.
What I haven't told you yet thou.....this man's wife used to cross stitch & wanted to try to get back into cross stitching!!!! So....while the guys went down into the workshop, us girls headed to House of Stitches.....
This shop is my very favorite shop to go to. The girls who work there are always so friendly & helpful. Since the weather was so bad that day, only one was working, but that was fine! She was able to help each of us with no problem.
I immediately went over to the WHAT'S NEW bins....that is always my first stop. I found a pattern & showed it to my friend..I knew it would be something of interest to her. She loved it & asked how hard it would be. I told her it shouldn't be too hard at all....She decided that was what she would get, so over to the specialty flosses we headed. As I was picking the colors for her, I grabbed a second set of each as well. I had decided I would do the pattern also....it is part of one of my favorite hymns. I will work with her on getting her back into stitching, once she gets to Hobby Lobby to get the other supplies she will need.
I also got 3 of the 4 LK Sweet Tooth Boxer Jrs. ( an online friend is sending me the 4th one!!) These were on the clearance table..I got them for half price. I am anxious to start these.....maybe today!!!!! I must do some housework first thou...
Also, while we were at House of Stitches, my aunt came into the shop. I had made arrangements with her to meet us there. We had a piece that she stitched & we framed for her. We were excited for her to see this one, because we were real pleased with the frame that my husband made for this one. We felt it really made the picture pop.
Ok, I must get onto that house work that I mentioned, but boy, would I rather stitch!!!!
