Busy few days

Mary was in Hartford for a few days for a Genealogy conference. I went up to see her on Thursday and we went out to the Thistle Needlework. We both got a lot of nice stash.

I want to at some point do Renaissance Lady that was in the March 07 issue of the UK Cross Stitcher so I got the beads I'll need for her. I also got a few items' that were on my wish list. "Unguns the Dragon - Butterflies" and "Make a Wish" by Lily of the Valley. Mary got me Illustrative Blackwork Fantasy by Dragon Dreams that was also on my wish list. I also got Britty Kitties V and a cord spiner to make cords for things that I finish.

Then yesterday I went back up to see Mary again and we went out to dinner and then we hung out and stitched and watched TV. It was a fun night and I'm looking forward to getting to do it again next week in NH.

Mary told me about the Ch√Ętelaine Designs Mystery XI: The Celtic Mystery that is going to be starting in Jan of 08. I've been waiting for this one so I signed up for it when I got home Thursday night. (I forgot to tell you that yesterday Mary)

I also have been doing some stitching. I finished 2 gifts but, I can't show them to they arrive safe and sound at their destinations. Hopefully soon I can show pictures. I did do a little work last night on my Little Snap Dragon. I didn't get much done but it did feel so good to work on him again after so long.


I also worked on Celtic Hart a little while I was waiting for Mary on Thursday. Sorry it's not the best scan. Looking at this piece I know I didn't get a lot done but, I feel like this piece is moving a long quickly. Sorry that you can see all my extra floss though the fabric.


I hope that everyone is having a nice weekend.

Great stash, the Britty Kitties and others are so cute. I've looked at a couple of the fun new patterns by Lili of the Valley, but don't have any yet.

It was fun seeing your Little Snap Dragon again, that one is so pretty, the little dragon is so sweet looking.
