It's been a busy week but I've been able to get in some stitching time.  I went up to my LNS "Needle Orts" and came away with my next project.  I mean come on.....I'm standing there looking at this pattern and off to the side I see that Debbie has the WDW Wool that goes with the pattern.  What's a girl to do?  Buy it!!!!
Taby's Needle Cushion
by Priscilla's Pocket
 I was able to finish "The Three Spinners and I love it.  Ya'll know that I never stitch a pattern twice, so if you're interested in purchasing this, it's in my store.

 Then I mentioned the  other day that I like to collect needle minders.  Here are some that I have.  Sorry for the lousy pictures.
Dog, Jeweled Acorn and
Wooden Needle Orts 
Metal Folk Star, Paris
and Wooden Needle Orts
Jeweled Acorn, Bumblebee,
Halloween Cat
 Then of all things I get an email from Fat Quarter Shop saying their Charm Packs are on sale so of course I had to purchase some.  
Autumn Lily (BBD), Faded Splendor
and World of Romance
We have all the plans made for our trip to Pa. but the closer the time gets the more anxious I become.  I haven't been home since my father passed away in 2006 and it's going to really hurt to see that they aren't there anymore.  As long as I've stayed down here in Florida, you can play tricks with your mind and pretend everything is the same.  I know I'm nuts but I also know I'll be okay once we get there.

I almost forgot to mention Rebecca.  Is she not the cutest rabbit!!!  Can't wait to get a needle into her.

Blessings for a perfect weekend, Barbara
