May Wipocalypse

This month I worked on 3 projects

 My bumble ornament got some attention the first week of the month and I plan on stitching on him some more this last week
 Dandelion Kingdom Fairy was the project I worked on during the week this month.  It is moving right along.  Still on page 1.
And of course I worked on Little Fairies at Play on the weekends.  I did 2,519 stitches.  I should finish up this page next month as Little Fairies at Play is up for the whole month until I get my 1,200 stitches in.  My new rotation is working good.

This month we are to talk about where we like to shop for stash.  I am lucky and have a local needlework shop Stitch N Frame.  I stopped in there Saturday to get some thread - 938.  And of course I browsed the new patterns, took a spin up and down the aisles, looked at the wall of models and pawed thru the clearance charts.  Here are a few that came home with my DMC 938.

I found this old Gnomes chart by Pat and Gloria.  I thought they did just Precious Moments.  I am starting to collect gnomes as my husband looks like a gnome (in a good way).

Here are some more of the projects inside.  This one is moving up to my sooner rather than later pile.

Then I found this sheep pattern by Kit & Bixby.  I think I was attracted to the colors in this one.  Note the floss is in the picture that was the main reason for going to my LNS.

And finally I picked up this Toad/Frog pattern from Stitchy Kitty. 

I am off tomorrow for Memorial Day.  It has been raining for days and we still have at least another 5 days of rain in the forecast next week.  I have not got any flowers planted yet. Told the husband we are planting next weekend no matter what the weather.

I have been enjoying floss tube.  I watch at night once the husband falls asleep.  Sunshine Stitchers, Just Stitching with Pam and Steph, Amy Loves Toads, Kansas City Girl in Colorado and then I pick others to watch based on how long they are.

Until next month.

Great work on everything. I need to get my stitching that needs framed to Stitch N Frame. I'm glad you found some new things. We all need new goodies every now and then. Good luck planting. This weather has been crazy. My hubby can't mow the yard it's under water.

You have some amazing projects on the go. I love the artwork of Ching-Chou Kuik and have quite a few of her HAED patterns but haven't stitched on any, alas. The colours are incredible. Looking forward to watching this beauty come to life. I hope the weather clears up for you. But at the same time, it might mean extra stitchy time. Happy planting on the weekend too.

Great progress on Little Fairies- that one on this page is adorable. I love your gnome chart, how fun! The comment about your husband was funny. My husband's alter ego is a dwarf which is a joke considering he's tall. I hope the weather clears so you can plant, but if not, enjoy the extra stitchy time.
