Had to buy Stash!

What is a person supposed to do when the medical staff says, "Ok, go have lunch and come back in 3 hours." Go home? Nah, shopping - of course!

Let's back up - I got the newest JCS magazine yesterday. Normally, I like a couple of pattern. Rarely do they scream I must be stitched NOW! This month - not 1 or 2 but 5 demanded attention. I'm weak and let them talk dirty to me.

Knowing I had the bone scan today and that I would have time to kill. I picked up the floss required for those patterns and some fabric.

Here's my haul ~




Now, to find the right linen. Time to shop again - oh the life I lead. lol

Hope this finds you well!

good work my friend, good work. Hey, I finally got the boards I have been waiting for, coz you know putting off is a second to only stitching. Sew with that said I must get my butt in gear and get a certain something in the mail.
Be always in stitches.

I have to agree, both those patterns are great. I'll have to see if I can find the magazine in any of the stores, since I know someone that would love both of them as a gift.
