Hello, fellow bloggers! Can you believe February is almost over already?!
I also started and finished a little Erica Michael's freebie for an autumn themed block exchange in one of my groups:
Two more blocks/themes and I'll be finished for the year...for this group, anyway.
We spent last weekend visitng DS (UT student) in Austin. He took our younger son on a camus tour as we may have another Longhorn in the family in the future. While the boys were touring the campus, DH and I went to visit Ginger's in Austin for my LNS "fix". I bought a few things there (including a bluebonnet design that DH would like me to stitch for his office) but they didn't have some of the floss I wanted. I vaguely remembered a needlepoint shop in Austin but couldn't remember either the name or the location but thanks to my smartphone, I found both. The shop had moved since we'd been there but we found it. It's called The Needleworks and has beautiful canvases and TONS of floss/fibers. They carry full lines of lots of the overdyes and silks that we cross stitchers use. I was in heaven looking at it all. (The closest thing in our little town to a LNS is a Hobby Lobby.)
I finished Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last weekend (I'd like to read the other 2 in this series too.) and started Thunderstruck (Erik Larsen). I also picked up the Steve Jobs bio using a B and N GC from Christmas. I'd read some of it from a library book but didn't get very far before I had to return it and decided since DH showed some interest that I'd just buy this one.
No big plans for this weekend....I'm hoping to get a lot more done on my sampler.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and...happy stitching!
