This weekend several of the ladies from my EGA chapter got together and drove down to Indiana to go to a stitching store we all love. What is it about stitchers that we’ll all drive 3 hours to get to a store when there are 3 within 1/2 hour of us 😉 We went to House of Stitches in LaPorte Indiana which has long been a favorite shop of many of us.
I finally broke down and got the Lavender Rose Accessories to go with my Lavender Rose Sweetbag. I’m still not excited about all the queen stitches used but its a cute set so I guess I’ll live 😉 I also got Strawberries so Faire from Ellen Chester and a Lamb ornament from The Stitching Parlor. The lamb is cute but not exactly my taste, I have an ornament exchange for christmas and the person I drew loves this type of ornament.
I also scored a few old magazines that I liked. Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue from 2000. The first year I got one of these was 2005, I think I have found them back to 2003 so I was excited to find a new issue. One can never have enough ornaments. 🙂 The Sampler and Antique has a very nice Quaker Sampler as well as a Bellpull and a blackwork sewing case I liked.
