When I went to Amy Mitten's Mute But Not Silent class on Sunday I admired the lady sitting next to me's scissor fob. I really wanted to stitch it. She told me the name of the pattern and who designed it. Hillside Samplings' Stitching Chair Necessaire. So when I got home I went straight to ebay to see if I could find it. No luck. So I thought I would keep checking hoping it would show up sometime. I kept checking and kept checking. Last night as I was picking up the Mr. Snowman book to see what color to backstitch the raccoon in, I noticed something under the book. It was a kit. A complete kit of - you guessed it - Hillside Samplings' Stitching Chair Necessaire. I'm sure I got it on ebay a while back. I had the kit all along! Good thing I didn't find it and buy it again! I think the universe is telling me I have too much stuff. DH tells me that all the time. He also mentions what will happen to it when I'm gone....
Of course, I had to start it.
I got the heart and crown cartouche done on Mute But Not Silent. Now I think I will tackle the sea captain's initials, HH.
The raccoon is done on Mr. Snowman. I want to stitch his tummy today. There is a big sea of white that will be mindless stitching during a soap opera.
I signed up for another class. I know, it is an addiction. I have been interested in Sue Spargo's embellished quilts. She is teaching up the road from me in September. I signed up for the needlecase to be specially designed for the class. I think it will be fun.
