I finally started the LK April Stamp. I didn't have all the WDW colors called for in the chart so used some DMC and other overdyed from my stash. A few hours more and this should be ready for the April Shelf.
Friday was a busy day for us. Tracy had to have lab work done in the early AM. This normally takes forever since he has to wait and wait and wait. Well this time I decided I would try making a appointment for the blood test and boy am I glad I had that brain storm. We got to the lab and instead of going in with him I went across the street to Starbucks for coffee and some quiet time to just sit, read and enjoy my coffee. I barely got settled and my book open before he was done. Like anyone after fasting blood work he was hungry so we headed for the first place he saw for some breakfast and I started stitching on the LK Stamp while we waited.

Another chart completed and only 2 more to go for a finish. Unlike my normal stitching habit of switching project almost daily I am going to continue working on this until it is finished. I was thinking of making it into a Bell Pull but Tracy said he thinks he would like to see it framed so that is what we will do. I'm thinking of using a double mat with red on the inside and green as the main color and then a simple frame but we will see when I get it to the framers.

From Carla Rizzie I received a wonderful Thank You note with this adorable Froggie Key Chain. I just love the note card with the froggies and even the envelope had froggies on it. She said that it came with 2 froggies. One says Best and the other says Buds. I guess we are now forever tied as Best Buds as now we each have one. Thank You Carla
Next was this wonderful Thank You card from Becky J. Inside the card was a cute Snowman chart that I hadn't seen before. It will be in my "to do" soon pile, I just love it. Also included was 2 WDW's in colors I didn't have. They came at the perfect time, I'm going to use them on my LK WIP "Great Things...". Thank You Becky

Being the Serial Starter I am I get to start at least one new project for every finish. I just couldn't resist starting one of the newest charts in my stash. I just love this little stitching angel and thought about how I wanted to do it all day yesterday. It just kept calling my name so last night I opened my box of fabric and this piece of Silweaver jumped right out into my hands. I then opened my box of overdyed floss and right on the top was this Dinky Dyed silk in just the perfect shade of blue. This is my progress from last night and early this morning. I think it will be completed very soon since it's one that is easy to stitch but hard to put down. I'm seeing it in a white frame with a mat to match the threads but we will see what I can find when it's finished. Like most of Sue Hillis designs it will fit into a pre-made frame so I'll be able to do it myself.

We both did a little damage to the pocketbook and was able to enable each other. After this we went to the Super JoAnn's. Mary works in a regular JoAnn's and had never been to a Super Store. She knew they were having a clearance on some of the fabrics and we couldn't resist a clearance sale could we. She found several pieces of Aida and I found a couple pieces of Linen.
It was one of the best days I've had in a very long time. A girls day out with someone I hope I get to spend time with again. I only wish I could meet more of my online stitching buddies and that we could all get together in person for a wonderful day like today.

The first one, "Monogram Collection" has 3 different alphabets in it along with numbers. There are 3 different designs also. Don't think you have ever have too many alphabet choices. The second one, "The French Hen" goes with the Rooster one I already have and I'll be doing those to go in my kitchen. The next two are for seasons and I hope she will be adding more in this series. "A Very Merry Winter" has the cutest snowman with a little red bird. His body is made up of the words "A Very Merry Winter. I just love the egg in "A Very Merry Spring" with it's little bunnies. Of course I couldn't wait to start on at least one of them and here is the finish....
I also finished another section on the LK Christmas Flip it. "Tree" was a little quicker to do than the others and I am almost half done with the project now. I'll get back to it on Friday for the Santa Day SAL. When this one is finished I'll start on the Halloween Flip It's. I'm going to do those in the same manner, all on one piece of fabric and finish as a bell pull.
Back to working on "Home...." and hope to get at least the words above the house if not more done this week.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching
