Greetings! Thanks for all the well wishes about my parent's move. We have been home since Tuesday but head back to MD this afternoon for a couple days. My parents are moved and settling in. So far, so good! My niece's brother and Dad moved all the large/heavy furniture and took items to the dump. We made trips to Goodwill, the dump and their new place. Thank goodness for my one brother and his wife; we are a good team. Sadly, my other two siblings haven't been able to help much! :(
I have been tired and recuperating this week and have managed to get some stitching done. First up is my 1997 PS Santa. I love his little blocks spelling out 'Christmas".
Next I worked on Samplings No.1 by With Thy Needle and Thread. I felt like something 'Easter-y', since I didn't have much of an Easter with the move. I'll be ready for next year!
Lastly, I started Be a Friend by Needlework Press. I'm doing it over one on 29 ct. Glenshee linen with Vikki Clayton silks. I love Glenshee linen and am sad it isn't available anymore. This 29 ct. is perfect for over one!!!
I follow Scrap RVA on FB and IG and they showed a bunch of cigar boxes on Friday. I've been thinking about one for the Linda Vinson project
and drove up to check them out. Here is what I got for me and a few friends:
|I think I'm picking the green one with the buffalo for me.
I love their new sticker and have to find a spot for it!
I will end with my boon from my parents move....their old china cabinet....perfect for a smalls expansion!!! I've been waiting a while for this!!!
|My old cabinet with a little space relief.
|My new cabinet pretty much filled to the gills!!!
Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship! Have a great week!
