Tiny Finish and Start


This is a photo of my CHS Alphabet piece. I'm working this with Vivian who has completed far, far more of the letters than I but she's stitching them individually so that's the excuse I'm going to stick with. Once I get going on this piece, it's hard to put down. I love how tiny each letter turns out. I've finished A as you can see and started B is for Bird.

Today I went down to NH for a haircut and stopped at a new cross stitch shop, Colonial Needleworks, in Bedford, NH on my way back. It was quite a nice shop, open, spacious and well organized which I love. I also got to see my friend Ann who has done a lot of framing for me which was an extra bonus. I was very good and only came out with things for my two exchange packages. That's not to say I wasn't tempted but I was strong!

It's lovely Patti! I've been waiting for an update - I think it's going to look fantastic :)

Hi Patti - I hope you enjoyed Colonial Needleworks. I am so sorry I didn't get back to you about meeting up there. I am disappointed in myself for forgetting to do that. I thought DH had one of his MD appts yesterday and was waiting for word... I should have told you that :-( Sorry. I actually ended up over there to pick up needles, but did not see any ME plates in the parking lot. So sorry I missed you - even sorrier I forgot to reply to your email - it would have been fun..

Just found your blog - linked thru Elfinlady's Forest to Racaire to you. Saw Lobster (should be Lobstah) Land and as I'm from seacoast NH originally, I'd thought I'd say hi! I live in Virginia now, but I do get "home" for visits which always includes a stop at Yankee Cross Stitch for my tax-free shopping.

Thanks for the report on Colonial Needleworks. Hope she'll stay open around Christmas, I won't be at my parents' for long! (They live just over in Amherst.)
