I am preparing to begin stitching this sampler. (Yes, I am happy to announce that I have officially finished off my red sampler. )
This sampler holds a sentimental memory behind it. When Rob and I went to Victoria in the fall of 2009, we accidentally stumbled upon an amazing little cross-stitching shop. These shops are so few these days as this amazing hobby seems to be sadly fading away. There was boxes and boxes of individual patterns for sale. I decided on this one as the sentiment, "A little house, a little tree, A neighbourhood for you and me" seemed perfect. We had just signed the papers to purchase the condo that was yet to be built. I am looking forward to stitching it up and having it up somewhere in this home. We have been here for almost a year now and it is finally starting to feel like home. I never leave one place easily and seem to struggle to adjust to my new nest. ;)
In other crafty news, I am having fun working on this scarf.
I was really wanting to give this new pom-pom style wool a go! It is really fun to work with. You only knit with the small string in between the pom-poms. It knits up quite quickly but I am still trying to figure out how I will be weaving the ends in?? Once completed, this scarf will be put in with the woolies for charity. I am thinking that a little preteen girl will enjoy sporting this winter woolie.
I have also been enjoying some scrappy bargain hunting. With the new CHA releases around the corner, there seems to be lots on sale at the local stores. Susan and I are so excited to be going to an invitation only sale at the LSS this Sunday. The entire store is 40% off. I am hoping to stock up on adhesives, cardstock and Thickers!
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
