Shepherd's Bush

I went to my all time favorite LNS yesterday, Shepherd's Bush. I love wandering in that store and looking at all their wonderful charts and everything on the walls. The only thing is for the first time ever I felt like they failed me. I went in for 3 very specific things and came out with only one of the three. How disappointing!! I went in for the items I needed to finish up my Stoney Creek Mini Series "Spring".

I needed to get Waterlilies Celadon, didn't have it. The Colorwash 519, don't sell Colorwash. The final item I needed was Glissen Gloss blending filament, (score!) something I needed. I also purchased some embroidery scissors. I love the little decorated scissors and these were only $5. I will probably purchase more at a later date. The ones I got was the little blue and white ones.

Because they didn't have the things I needed I had to make a purchase from 123stitch. I love their website but I tried to support my LNS first and even though I wasn't able to find everything doesn't mean I won't be going back. They were eager for my business and was going to order the items but because I'm really close to a finish (first one in a loooooong time) and I know that 123stitch will have my order to me by Saturday or Monday latest. (Living within an hour from them means that I get a real quick delivery time, not to mention that they have a real quick delivery time anyway). I decided to order from there instead of waiting.

I will be making a scissor fob for these scissors as they are quite small and I will lose them really quick without one. I will also be making a scissor case because the tips are quite sharp. But they are really cute!

April Snow and Spring Showers

Here we go another snow shower! I'm constantly amazed by people who live in Utah. I went into a store the other day and the person helping me was complaining because it was once again snowing. She wanted it to be spring already. People let me tell you it is early April, snow is expected!!!! And in this case still desired! I know I'm strange but I love Utah in the early spring. One day it is nice and warm (not too warm) the next we can have snow! The snow doesn't last long and makes the world beautiful again. Soon we will have the beautiful flowers and the world turning green. So let's continue with our beautiful spring weather for another month. Come May we can have our good spring weather.

I'm also back to posting after my tonsilectomy. Don't do this!! It is not fun! I think I would rather have child birth again. I have been in pain for the last two weeks. Hopefully it helped and I will start to sleep better soon.

On the stitching front not much done. I have progressed to page two on Aquamarine and done maybe 500 stitches on it but no more. I might just have to stick in a small here and there to have a sense of accomplishment but I do still really enjoy working on my HAED.

Enjoy your spring!!
