Ah, My Precious

WOOHOO! Today I got stash in the mail :o) It's been such a long time so I'm still ogling everything. This was a small order but hey, anything is better than nothing! DH had bought me The Garden Chair by The Cat's Whiskers and the order arrived from Needlecraft Corner this morning -

The fibers are so gorgeous! The pin for the parasol is just amazing and the pattern book itself is quite the instruction booklet. When you look at it, there really isn't a lot of stitching involved but putting the chair and parasol together is going to be time consuming. Oh well, it's a challenge I'm willing to try ;o)

Since Lizzie Kate came out with another pattern for breast cancer, I got Drema to throw that in the order as well. Yes, bad me. LOL! Peace, Love and a Cure is so pretty. I love the tuck the model is in and if we get down to Maine this weekend, I'll keep my eyes out for some of that fabric so I can make my own. Now that I think about it, this would make a great project to take with me :o)

Over the weekend, DH and I put our bedroom back to rights again. We now have all the new flooring down! Yay! Our bedroom looks so much better and I'll get some pictures up at some point. We also have the new bed that we ordered and it's now in the extra bedroom. I thought I would post a picture for you since the bed was missing when I showed you the renovation pictures -

I still need to get a duvet to fill the duvet cover. I still say this is a huge queen duvet but DH doesn't think so. We'll see once it's filled. The quilt on the end of the bed is one that my mom made me quite a few years ago. It won grand champion at the fall fair that year :o) It was too small for the new bed but I still wanted to display it so I compromised!

Glad you got new stash!

The quilt is beautiful!

Twenty Six eggs! How do you do it? You must love them much more than I do. I'm starting to get sick of them. No more cravings like I had in January.

Your quilt is stunning!

Love your new Lizzie Kate pattern. Looking forward to seeing it stitched up.

I'll have you know I'm getting e-mail updates on your egg eating count. I was busting a gut laughing this morning! You're crazy woman, crazy I say! :)

Are you so excited to start the chair? My chair progress is stalled due to supply and manufacturing problems, but I'm still all excited. Cant' wait to see yours. :o)
