I just got back from Country Crafts and Curtains downtown. It was nice to have a little fun chit chat about crafts with Diane. But I have to tell you, it's like Christmas in there. Lots of new stock and I just fell in love with this "Trim the Tree" stitching pattern. I can't wait to trace it off later this afternoon. I might even start working on it this evening.
For a long time, I've had two quilts on my to-do list that require templates. They are the Winding Ways quilt and a Storm at Sea quilt. Monica W. from our guild will be leading a Storm at Sea class in April, and I'll be the first to sign up for that one. Got my templates, got lots of fabric, now I will have to hold myself back from doing it. I'll play with the Winding Ways templates to see how easy or hard they are to use.
And finally, a blue spool of thread, it's Sulky 12 weight. Exactly what I love to do hand embroidery. She also has a fresh supply of Sulky Christmas Red if you've been looking for some.
