Wow I have 2 new followers!  Three if I count myself.  I was trying to follow someone else's blog and I wound up following myself.  And now I can't figure out how to un-follow myself! 

My friend and I went up to Bellingham, Washington today to check out a cross stitch/knitting shop.  Yikes it was just as bad as the shop where I live.  I really envy the gals who have a really nice shop in their areas.  We drove an hour plus to get there.  I'm thankful for the internet more everyday.  My friend decided that she wanted to try her hand at counted cross stitch.  She bought a kit.  I got a couple of small charts.  I went in with 2 colors of DMC on my list that I needed to have for the project I'm working on and she didn't even have those.  Actually she tried to get me to buy Anchor.  I refused because I don't want to change brands when working on a project.  I guess I'm worried about one not being as shiny as the other or one being duller than the other.  Same difference I guess.

Happy Stitching,


  1. Hello, just found your blog.

    Such a shame about your visit to the LNS. Ours is about an hours drive away and even then no guarentee they have what you need. I use the internet all the time now.
    Love your L*K baskets finish and your SAL is looking great.

  2. Sandy, you were right not to buy the Anchor floss...I had to do a floss substitution in one of my earlier projects and I could tell where I did not use the same brand. The shade was just "off" enough to annoy the crap outta me :)

    1. Thanks for sharing that with me. It would do the same thing to me.
