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.
