Stitches and More
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands... Proverbs 31:13

Hello again!!I

I've been away for a while, finally back and trying to catch up on blog reading, emails and everything else!!  BUT, I have been stitching!  I think maybe a finish or two, and a few new starts :)

Our latest out of town adventure was over to the St. Louis area for our nephew's high school graduation.  It was fun seeing him and the family again for a few days.

I've been acquiring some older charts that have been on my want/need :) list for a while, and some that I just ran across that I liked.  I managed to find a few old Sheepish Designs charts at my LNS stuck behind some newer items that I just could not pass up!!  Already stitched one of them :)  I could really kick myself for not getting more of them while they were easy to find.  I just love most of what they published.  There are two designs especially that I want to do--Anonymous Woman and The Garden Path.  Off and on I've tried on eBay, but have not had any luck.

New today-7/22/12:
 Can't believe that it's been so long since my last post.  Have been busy, busy!

Also, I've been stitching a lot.  Here are 2 finishes.  I've begun a couple more, but no pics.  Also finished a canvas piece but can't show that one just yet! ;)

This pattern was from an old Leisure Arts Magazine.  I just tore the pages out and don't know when it was published.  If anyone out there knows the date, please let me know.  It would be much appreciated.  :)

Lovely!! I also enjoy the Sheepish Design charts. It must've been a thrill to find some hidden at your LNS!
