Day 13 of 15

So yesterday I went to the LNS and JoAnn's and Michaels. I got a lot of cool stuff. Got my swap partners v-day gifts, and stuff for my v-day giveaway (keep an eye out). I can't show you everything I got but here are some of the things I got at the LNS.

The last time I was in there she had gotten some really gorgeous sparkly fabrics. I couldn't think of anything I needed them for but they were just so pretty. So I came home and went through my stash and found something I thought would be really cute on it. So I picked up some 'Seaside Twinkle' and started my 13th project. 'Mermaids'

I also have never used any of the hand dyed threads so I pick up the recommended colors and I am having a lot of fun using them. I really did not want to put this one down at all last night. I think this will be the first one I pick back up. I am so thankful since I started blogging it has really opened my eyes to all that is out there for cross stitching. I'm finally starting to branch out and try new things.

Yay only two more projects to go! I really don't want to pick up either of my last couple of projects. But I don't want to pick something new. So off I go to figure out which one is getting worked on today. Happy Stitching!

Looks like you got some great stash goodies!! Yes, blogging does enable you to widen your stash. I think your Mermaids is going to be darling.

Crescent Colours are my favorite hand dyed cottons. If you love those, wait until you try the Belle Soie silk line. The silk is to die for!

I love those mermaids. Maybe I will change things up again and make that one tonight's start for the crazy challenge. Thanks for the inspiration!
