Do you remember that I won a $100 Visa gift card opportunity basket at the closing banquet of the regional EGA seminar about 2 weeks ago? It has been burning a hole in my pocket ever since then!
Here are the results of my stash enhancement moment at my LNS. (It only takes a moment to spend $100) Doesn't look like much, does it? But I was able to indulge myself for the first time with some Belle Soie silks for kitting up Mary Roe.
Also, I was able to kit up the new L'Atelier Perdu Mystery SAL. It is a large sampler and I didn't have a big enough piece of light sandstone linen. Good thing because I received Part 1 in the mail today!
There was also 5 pair of stretcher bars (one pair was already in use on Merry Cox's So Dear to Thy Heart before I took the picture :) And there was a handful of DMC threads not shown.
Here is my progress on SAL Sopresa 2. Part one is finished!! I love the tree design on this part. Now onto Part 2.
I am off to an all day stitching class tomorrow hosted by my LQS. It is being taught by designer Meg of Crabapple Hill. Don't know much at this time but she is bringing a special design for us to do. Not sure if it's an existing pattern or something exclusive for us??? I'll update you on Monday. Looks like the rest of my weekend will be picking and canning green beans :)
Have a great and stitchy weekend!
