Stash Enhancement Alert!Other Crafts
I didn't mean to. Really. I went to A.C. Moore to stock up on yarn for charity knitting because they had all their yarn 25% off. And I did get plenty of yarn. (More on that later. This is a stitching post.) But I also saw some ornament kits on sale. They ended up being even more on sale than I'd thought--25 to 40 cents each. If I'd known that, I might have gotten more. As it were, I thought they were around a dollar and got three: "Mistletoe," "Log Cabin," and "Glad Tidings." Oh, hey, it just occurred to me that I could just stitch those three little ornaments and meet my goal for the year. ;-) Something to keep in mind come December. Anyway. I also saw Needleworker at Heart and just had to have it. I like how it incorporates various kinds of needlework. (Hmm. My boyfriend's mom might like it too. Interesting.)
Then we went to the Borders store where I used to work. There I found the Easy Cross-Stitch Pattern-a-Day Calendar 50% off. I hadn't gotten it at full price because I wasn't sure how many of the projects I'd actually want to do, but at half off, why not? I looked at the patterns for the days I'd missed when I got home and I like them pretty well so far.
And then (still at the bookstore), I was looking at the craft magazines and saw Cross Stitch Crazy. And right there in the top right corner of the cover, it told me I could STITCH MR. DARCY. MR. DARCY. Be still, my heart. I can't find a picture of this miraculous chart online, but believe me, you'll see it soon enough. Mr. Darcy. I get to stitch Mr. Darcy. The Colin Firth Mr. Darcy. I simply cannot believe my good fortune.Posted by Kat at January 7, 2005 11:57 PM
