A Bit of Eye Candy

Hi Friends,
Thought I'd show you 
what I picked up while at 
Dyeing to Stitch last weekend for 
their birthday celebration.
Yes, wonderful R & R linen.
My true obsession.
In some colors I actually didn't have : )
Mink and Coffee Bean. 
Along with some of their beautiful trims
and a few pretty new silk threads
by The Thread Gatherer 
and Crescent Colours.
x x x x x 
Today I spent a bit of stitching
time on the Primitive Needle
Kindred Spirits piece I've been 
working on.  
 Slow but steady.  I'm pretty sure I'll
have this done by next
Halloween :D.
I stitched this on the recommended 
color linen, Days gone by, but 
now I wish I had just stitched
it on some of my R & R linen.
It always goes along so much
 faster and more enjoyable.   
Either way though,    
stitching always seems to make 
whatever little worries I have
fade.  Don't you agree?
x x x
Well, I hope your day is full of
things you love and no worries too.
Smiles,
~Nan
