New Stash

I made an unexpected trip to an LNS yesterday and picked up a few things. Thought I would share them with you.

__________Splurge__________
Reminds me of Mardi Gras. You can check out some of the other beautiful designs at http://kelmscottdesigns.com/needle-minders.htm. They even have an Adam & Eve minder for those of you stitching your way through A&E walls.

_________Fabric__________
28 Count Linen (1/8 yard each)
(Lugana Summer Khaki (for Mother's TLC), Cashel Light Mocha & Cashel Antique Ivory).



_________New Charts_________
Ink Circles "Fleur d'Orleans"
I saw this on a couple of other blogs and had to have it! The owner of the LNS said one of her customers contacted designer requesting a fleur de lis pattern and this was the result.


Lizzie Kate
"Sons are a Special Joy" and "Home is Where Our Story Begins"
Want to stitch "Sons are a Special Joy" for DS's birthday and
"Home is Where Our Story Begins" for a journal cover.

__________Floss__________
For Theron Traditions "Mother's TLC"
Sampler Threads - Peach Ice Cream, Claret, Victorian Pink, Dried Thyme & Midnight
All kitted up and ready to go, hoping to finish this for DM for Mother's Day.


For Acadian Designs "Fleur de Lis #1"
WDW - Whiskey, Curry & Honeysuckle

(I am currently stitching this chart in Queen Bee,
but wanted to do it again in the recommended threads)

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Hoping to post some stitching progress after the weekend.
Stay warm (I think it is still unusually cold almost everywhere) and come back again.

  2. Marian,

    I have links for my LNSs at the bottom of the blog. Since they are all at least 50 miles away, I try to alternate locations since they each have their own "personality".

    •Acadian Corner (Metairie)- very nice staff & lots of floss

    •Accents, Inc. (Metairie)- great selection of local charts

    •Gary's Crafts & Needlework, Inc. (Metairie)- huge selection of charts & lots of older charts

    •Cross-Stitch Corner (Baton Rouge) - next on my list, but have not visited before, hoping to go in March/April

    •Threadneedle Street (Mississippi) - want to visit during the summer

    •Garden District Needlework (New Orleans) - mostly needlepoint & knitting, but love the needlepoint NO ornaments (just can't afford them)

    •Cajun Crossn' (online) - I have not made any online purchases yet
