I stopped in at the fabric store yesterday to pick up a bag of batting and as usual I came out with more than what I went in to get. However, I just couldn't resist this mug especially as it was 60% off.
I also could not resist this bit of bowling fabric as well. I'm thinking mug rugs or a table topper. Dad and both of my brothers are bowlers. There are several colors to choose from to create something spectacular.
I want to share about a new cross stitch designer who has an Etsy shop. Her name is Teresa Murgida and her Etsy shop is called Primitive Acorns. She designs primitives and I like them very much. She was running a promotion today that if you buy 2 designs you get a third of your choice for free. I, of course, did not stop at 2. Her prices are extremely reasonable and she was a delight to work with today. Just click on the link and check out what she has to offer.
Feeling a little bit proud of myself today. Thanks to our first measurable snowstorm I found time today to spend an afternoon with Lorenzo (for those who don't know someone named my sewing machine Lorenzo back in the 80's and it stuck). Not only did I work on Christmas presents I figured out how to bind the project for the first time ever. I am now down to blind stitching the binding on the back side of my project. Yes, I did a little happy dance when I had the AH HAH moment when I finally understood how to bind!
I also got a pretty good start on what all these strips are going to become. I can't wait to share my completed project.
