Carrie and I went on a little shopping trip yesterday, mostly to scrapbook stores, in the Mississauga area, but since we were in the 'neighbourhood' of course I had to stop in Gitta's, one of the very few LNS in the Toronto area. I pawed eagerly through tons of leaflets and oooh'ed and aww'ed at lots of shop models. And even met up with a couple of stitchers that I know! I ended up leaving with the new JCS Ornament issue (yeah!) and 2 gorgeous hand-dyed fabric remnants. One is a nice sized piece 15" x 15" of Autumn Fields Belfast - this one I'm so in love with - and another piece 11" x 27" of a nameless blue fabric - the dying is very subtle so it looks like sky and clouds. I was thinking this might be a great piece for the Bent Creek Spring Snapper series.
I'm off to Marj's today for a stitching get-together. Must get my stitching, and of course food, put together!
