Keeping on.

Hello All!  I've been BUSY!  I've been working a lot and also the Mirabilia Retreat has taken up a lot of my time.  It was fun and great to meet Nora and 45 other like-minded stitchers.  Next year is going to be just as much fun!

Here is a picture of a lovely watercolor I got painted by Nora.  I plan to hang it next to my Persephone.

I also received a beautiful oil painting that I was post of picture of in my next post.

I like scissors.  I visited a Hobby Lobby in SC while we were at the retreat and thanks to the lovely Shannon, I have custom fobs for all my Ginghers and a pretty little stand to show them off.

Here is a current picture of Buttercup.  You will notice there is less stitching yet again.  I think I finally found the right colors since the ones I had weren't exactly what I was looking for.  And I found them at The Waste Knot!

LOVE this store!  They are located in Falls Church, Va and they are a Needlepoint shop.  They carry the whole line of Rainbow Gallery Petite Silk Lame Braid, which is one of my all-time favorite fibers.   And they have an amazing wall of Splendor.

Arranged by color family, this wall made finding the right colors so easy!  I want it in my own home hehe.

Well, TTFN!
