I got good mail yesterday. I got the last kit for this year's Silver Needle club, A Little Help from Our Friends Stitching Circle. I really like Drawn Thread Designs and I have been waiting for this one. I was very tempted by her latest releases but I wanted to see what her club design looked like.
Along with the design we got a couple of other presents, an ort jar (perfect size) and a Stitchy Dot needle minder.
I also got my Paper Pumpkin kit.
I have a birthday card to make. Speaking of birthdays, today is a very special day. Evan turns one year old. Oh my, has it been a fun year to see him grow and develop and to see his personality emerge. He is just so cute. It is such a blessing to have a DIL who is such a great mom to our grandchildren.
Also in the mail yesterday was the latest issue of Just Cross Stitch.
I tried out my Omanik frame. I don't think I put the linen in right. I'll have look at a tutorial on Youtube. I think I had the linen in backwards. So I need to try again. I had a question about how long it took to get the frame. I ordered it and was told it would be two weeks before it was sent. And it was. After it was sent, I got a tracking number and was able to track it to New York but I couldn't get any information after that. It took about 8 or 9 days for it to get from New York to me. I presume some of that time was spent in customs.
Still working on my pre-stitching. I'll show you tomorrow.
