Baby Blanket Update
Do you all remember all the problems I was having with the baby blanket and the letter B? Well I decided to try and do the letter C by going over 2 instead of 1. I like the way that it came out so as it is so much larger than the letter B. So I frogged the letter B and it took me 3 days to get it totally ripped out. What a pain!!!!! I think I finally got the hang of stitching on evenweave but I still don't like it!!!! I still like my aida!! Stay tuned as I will post more pictures as I complete more of the letters.
On another note I was a bad girl and ordered some new patterns. I ordered the new Big Toe Designs Amazing Grace and I ordered two Dinky Dye patterns, one called Celtic Cross and the other one is Celtic Sister. I am anxiously awaiting their arrival in the mail. Now I just have to find time to do all this stitching!!
Today I found a local cross stitch shop about 25 miles from my house. When I went in the shop I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I have never seen so much cross stitch in one place!! It was a small store but the owner had many patterns, lots of different kinds of floss, and lots of different kinds of material. I behaved myself and only bought flosses for my two exchanges I am in but I will definitely be going back.
