Found A Small Kit to Work On

It was a long day today with the homework, studying and test I had to take for my classes. It took the better part of the day. I had big plans of kitting up my Farmer's Alphabet, but when I finally finished my schoolwork, I was all but drooling. I got the pattern out for FA, but tried to comprehend the fabric needs. I was not sure I have 32 count in my stash. I have mostly 28 count, thanks to a door prize that hubby won several years ago at CATS. It was a bag of fat quarters, which he promptly gifted to me. But as usual, I digress...

As I stood there, pattern in hand, I was not sure I could summon the strength to kneel in front of the fabric drawer trying to find the perfect piece of fabby. Then I could not form my mind around the question of whether to stitch it over 1 or 2. I figured that given that I was drooling out of exhaustion and saturation of schoolwork, that it would be best not to be near fabric. Especially overdyes. LOL

So instead, I went to box of kits and found a lovely Lori Birmingham kit of the Sarah Belle Nantucket Basket to work on tonight. It is small and pretty easy. I love Lori Birmingham! Her work is so pretty and feminine. Plus she is an absolutely lovely person. I had the pleasure of taking a class at CATS and just thought she was a joy.

I am trying to stay off 123stitch tonight. LOL Today for some reason, people were posting finishes of the Shepard's Bush patterns. Oh my goodness, they are so beautiful. I love the colors and style. I have a few in my "collection." (I am afraid though that if I stitch them that I can not possibly frame them without the fabulous Jill Rensel mats!) The patterns are so lovely and really affordable. Plus they do look lovely finished as pillows. I just love their work!

I like LB too...but I LOVE SB! I think I have most of their things. I had plans to do an entire bedroom in SB designs, but so far that has not happened...
