First and foremost... any of you that pray please say a pray today for John's Aunt Effie. She is having a tumor removed from her brain. We are sitting by the phone waiting to hear any news. Thank you!
Today I received my other two things I ordered from my birthday money from dad.
I got sick of losing my needle all the time so I got a needle minder. It's a cute kitty silhouette. I also ordered a Biscornu kit. I've never made one but I see you blogging/stitching friends making them from time to time and I want to try one. The fabric it came with is so pretty. It's 32 count Opalescent Raw Belfast Linen. I've never used linen or a count so high. Please share any words of encouragement, tips, or experiences on this count, using linen, or making biscourns! I'm kinda scared to try it.
I also went to JoAnn's yesterday for a quick minute. And it really was a quick minute because I came down with a migraine! I saw in the UK magazine I had gotten, an article about painting your fabric instead of dying it and I wanted to try it. So I bought a little bottle of fabric paint. (I just let John pick whatever color) I also got ladybug fabric to take a stab at making a needle/scissor book with that ladybug pattern I got. (think Emily is going to receive it, I know how much she loves ladybugs! *smiles*) Also right by the checkout they had huge baskets full of little spools of ribbon marked down! Man if my head hadn't been pounding so I could of sat there for a half hour just going through the two baskets. As it was I managed to grabbed a few that I thought were really cute.
Also John finally finished his video game! I have my tv back!!!! I still didn't know what to work on at that time so I started this.
It's from the UK magazine also. It's suppose to be a British Flag with the Love underneath.... but I decided I really liked the patchwork Love and i'm thinking of making it into a pillow. Didn't really see any fabric for the pillow while I was at JoAnn's yesterday so hopefully i'll find something I like.
