My LNS in almost a year

Today I went to my LNS for the first time in almost a year and I loved it.  I will be starting 3 different cross stitch projects in the next couple of days....
I saw this Lizzie Kate boxer and I felt it tied up in a few words how I've been feeling for awhile.  I know Lizzie Kate loves overdyed flosses but I'm going to do mine in either DMC or pick out some HDF silks that I have.  No more building up of a stash.

This is one of Nora Corbett's witches called Gigi.  I bought a 28ct. hand dyed linen by Picture This Plus called Nocturne to stitch her on.  It will look like she's standing in front of a storm cloud.  Can't wait to start this one.

And last but not least is this sweet design by La-D-Da that I've always admired.  This one will be done on a light grey with a HDF silk.....maybe.
So I'm going to try to get back in the swing of things and get some stitches on some fabric.  Since I won't be storing anything, everything that I purchase will eventually be given away when I'm finished with that pattern so look forward to that.
Wish me luck.....
Barbara

Good for you Barbara. You controlled yourself too. Easier to do with less cash, isn't it? I know!

Very nice. Nothing like going to the LNS.

Nice choices Barbara, I especially like Spring Hare, it has a certain old fashioned tone to it, a bit like the vintage "Alice In Wonderland" vibe.
