Visit to my LNS

The boys started school on Thursday despite the fact that alot of people in town are still without power.  The schools have power so they started a day later than expected.  Everyone seems happy with their teachers so far so I am keeping my fingers crossed.  Since they had school I decided to pay a visit to my LNS which is not so local.  It's about 50minutes away and the traffic is always ridiculous.  I picked up a few Halloween goodies and some fabric and threads.  Here is the project I can't wait to start. (As a matter of fact, I had to put a few stitches in right when I got home)  It is Halloween Party by Just Nan.  I am stitching it on 28ct Cauldron by Picture this Plus with the recommended threads.  I will post progress when it actually starts to look like something.  I bought some other goodies but I won't post a pic, I don't want you to see how out of control my habit is.  Just Kidding!  I didn't think to take a pic.


Hope you have a lovely Stitching Weekend.

I love all the bright colors laying on the linen. Is the LNS shop one we would pass on our way up to the retreat? We are looking for some from Boston.

love your new WIP. Which LNS did you go to? We now go to Hoops and Needles in Walpole... it's the closest to us since Deb closed her shop.

Janice Boucher said...

oops! Never mind... I enlarged the pic of your new chart and saw her label on it. Isn't that the cutest little shop? Ellen is so pleasant. "Hoops" is about a 45 min drive for us too here in the Swansea/Somerset area, but so worth the trip!
I look forward to seeing your finish. Love the colors!

Great pick, Nataly! Just Nan is just fabulously talented - especially when it comes to Halloween.
Love your pic with all those colors together; it looks so pretty!

I love Halloween designs and this one is a great one! It must be so nice to have a LNS withing driving distance of your home. I miss being able to see fabric up close. The online photos just don't seem to cut it.
