My stitchy ORTs look good this month, but truthfully a lot of it is from the fraying edges of my fabric... I never take the time to do anything with the edges, I'm just too darn excited to jump right into my new projects! What about you?
And after talking about it for a long time, and then gathering supplies, gridding fabric, etc., I've finally started my first HAED. I'm loving every teeny tiny stitch so far!
Doesn't look like much yet, does it?
I've got some fun news to share, I found a new LNS in my area! Besides Michaels, I only knew of one needlework store in my city. My mom and I were out on our annual shopping day and stumbled across a new store! It was kind of deceiving as their name is The Frame Corner and so I'm sure I've seen the store again and again, but never knew there was fun stitchy stuff inside!
And the most exciting part? Are you ready? Stitching get-togethers! And retreats! I've been envious of the stitchy getaways and get-togethers I see around blogland, I don't really know any other stitchers that I can visit with and talk stitching. There's my mom, and my girls dabble with it once in a while, but that's pretty much it. I'm soooo looking forward to venturing out and getting to know other stitchers!
