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!

Nice stash. It's always nice to come home with fabbies, that's always the best part for me.

I just love those new fabbies! I'm impatiently awaiting the arrival of my JCS issue. Can't wait to get it!

Great trip! I've yet to be to Gitta's but I stop by her booth each time I'm at the CNSF. A stitch -a- long? I miss my stitching buddy Christine already...sniff, sniff.

Great new fabrics!! Isn't it wonderful just dreaming what you'll be stitching on them?
Your 4-Saisons is so lovely. What a beautiful piece this will be when completed.

Great projects! I'll come back to have a look!
The blue fabric will certainly look great with the Bent Creek spring snappers! Their designs are such fun to stitch...
You're bookmarked!

I am still patiently waiting
for my ornament issue to
get here. I renew the magazine
so the ornament issue is a
bonus. It is fun to shop in a LNS
for sure. I don't have any LNS
close to my house anymore.
