...June? Already? Where did May go?
It's been a busy week. It was my birthday on the weekend, and I had a wonderful visit at the LNS and treated myself to a couple of new charts I'd been eyeing - Courtney Collection's Garden Fair and Prairie Moon's Red and the Black II. How could I resist? Brenda was working on it and I could fight it no longer. :) They had a cake for me and everything. I was absolutely touched. I got some stash money from my mom and which I'm using to pick up supplies for MMG2 ver 2.0 and AL version 2.0, and thread for my brother's Christmas present. AND I got a GC from Jon's mum so I ordered the Cricket Collections Spring, Autumn, Winter and Summer (thanks to Karen and Wil for their enabling) and Glendon Place's Sleepy Hollow. When will I stitch these? Lord knows. But I thought they were so cute! And Sleepy Hollow is just plain cool. I'm not usually one for Halloween stitching, but I love that story - it terrified me when I was kid!!
Speaking of MMG2 (My Mother's Garden II for those of you who are new to my blog), it's June 1st and that means that the new issue of The Gift of Stitching is available. I'm soooo excited because Tracy Horner has an amazing new design in this issue. I know I have to do Growth Rings first for my brother (I can say that here because he doesn't read my blog!), but this one will be hard to resist.
I'll be away for the weekend, having a little getaway with my mom. We're going up to Bancroft to relax and visit my aunt who I never get to see anymore since my grandmother passed away. It'll be wonderful to visit! Mom has already ordered to bring ALL my models. And I'm sure she'll insist on a bunch of other things too. I should just let her pack them all then! lol
And another small note - I'm having no end of problems with my email of late. Things I send aren't getting to their destinations and I'm also not receiving messages at times - yet they're not going to spam either. It's extremely frustrating. If you have sent a message and not heard back, it's because either A - I didn't get it, or B - I replied and you didn't get my reply. If this has happened, try sending again. I've been back and forth with the gmail tech support (who aren't all that helpful I'm afraid) and I'm looking into alternatives.
And finally, a little shout out to my new followers - I'm up to 49!! I might have to have a little draw when I reach 100. Thank you to all of you!
