Two Kooler Design Studio charts I must have!!

I adore carousel horses and this one looks familiar so I need to check it out before I buy.  I also like the 12 Days of Christmas.  It's a little different than what we usually see and should be a faster stitch.  (I hope!) 

I finished my first eBook yesterday: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  I'd never read it before because I loathe the movie (especially that rainbow song).  I knew that in the book she has silver slippers not ruby.  I find I really liked the book.  Toto is quite growl-y in the book.  I don't know if I like it enough to read the rest of the series, but who knows!  Time will tell.  Maybe I can find it at the library.  I wanted to read the book before seeing the new Oz movie that's coming out this year in theatres.  I'm thinking the new movie might be closer to the true story.

Finished Spring Cove by By the Bay

I finished this piece.....finally!!  I love herons and this is just chock full of them.  Next stitch night I'm going to see what Terri can come up with for framing for this.  I started the Aunt Emma Snowkins by Sisters & Best Friends because "I have all the threads already kitted."  HA!  I go to stitch the chocolate bunny and no GAST Maple Syrup.  I was so ticked.  Turned out I was missing Pine and Buckeye Scarlet in order to finish the six or so designs I have. 

I ordered them all from Stitches N Things this morning and they are already on their way to me!!!  Now that's my idea of customer service. :)  I may piddle around with this until the threads arrive or I may just move on to a new piece (Soar - has eagles and was a special.  Dang if I can remember the designer today.)

Okay, I've looked it up: With thy Needle & Thread is the designer of the eagles piece.  Web site is

Found a Shepherd's Bush kit this morning

Of course, I can't recall the name of it, but it's theme is patriotic and it cost $44.00.  It was released in 2001 so I'm guessing I've let it age long enough and it's ready to be stitched.  Ah, ha!  American Sampler is the name of it.  Not that I remembered; I took a moment to look it up. :)

Stupidest. idea. EVER.

Found out that people are sending emails, etc. telling people they are NOT invited to the wedding.  Wouldn't not getting the invitation accomplish the same thing???  So rude no matter what this site says.
