A Finish & New Stash!


Thanks to everyone for the get well wishes,  I still have a sore throat and a cough but I am feeling much better than the beginning of the week.  I will just have to let it run its course.  As you can see I have been stitching the past few days.  This is Spring House by the Trilogy.  I looks nothing like the original of course as I chose my own colours using my yummy new threads.




I took my daughter Heather prom dress shopping on Friday, thankfully we did find the perfect dress but don;t anyone ask me about the colour.  It is called Berry Metal but is very hard to describe.  I will try and take some photographs when we go for a fitting in May.  Not far from the dress shop there is a patchwork store which I just had to visit.  I bought these lovely fat quarters and while browsing I found a large basket of ribbons on sale,  so pretty I just had to have a few.



Thanks to Siobhan who gave me a lovely gift certificate  in exchange for a magazine I sent her I was able to get these wonderful charts from the States.  I am in such a tizzy I just can;t decide which one to start first...lol.  Hugs!

Love your colors on Spring House! And wow, you sure bought some great charts, ribbons, and fabric, Elaine--those will keep you busy for a while.

Glad you had luck finding your daughter a prom dress! Hope to see a photo of it soon. Having had only three sons, prom dress shopping is something I never got to experience, unfortunately...
