I went to Memphis this week with my husband. His office is headquartered there and I dragged along for something to do! We had a good time. We stayed in Tunica, MS, because he had a free room at a casino there--aren't we thrifty!?!?!? Then we got up and were in Memphis in less than an hour. I dropped him off so I could go do something. AND, I was able to find a real cross stitch store!!! It was heavenly!! Stitchers Inc. is the name and it was so much fun! I stayed in there for a couple of hours, looking at everything in the store! I bought quite a few things and some were even in the sale bin! That just makes it even more fun! The employees were so nice and I plan to go back soon! My husband goes pretty often and I've never even thought of going with him to look for a stitching shop! Oh well, I know about it now!
I've been stitching on some little New Year's ornaments, so I'll be ready for next year! I stitched this cute little freebie in the car, and it's pretty cute! I found it here and I will finish it soon with some sparkle and glitz!
It hasn't been ironed yet...sorry! I think it will finish up really cute. This is on a small scrap of Cobblestone Aida and I used Crescent Colors Apple Fritter. It's much prettier in reality.
I have almost finished two others, for a grand total of four! That will be a good start and I can hopefully add some during the year! I also got a cute little Snoopy New Year's ornament at the Hallmark Store and some glittery stars in gold and silver! What fun!
Today I ran by the local Hancock's and grabbed several shiny fabrics for finishing these. Of course, while I was there I had to go through the stock quickly to see if there was anything I couldn't live without....I found several! And the beautiful new fabric store in my town is having a big sale, so I intend to be in there on Monday to check for necessities!
Thanks for stopping by and do come back soon!
