Stitching and Reading

Lilly of the Valley
Free design from danybrod
It is no longer on the site, I e-mailed her and
she was kind enough to send it to me.
Lizzie Kate

Free design on Blackbird Designs blog
28 ct. Gold Promise from Sassy's Fabbys
DMC, can't recall the #.

Little House Needleworks
Thread Pack, I used DMC 409
in place of CC Vintage Violet and
used the Vintage Violet in place of the
32 ct. unknown (cream colored)
I really need to learn how to take better pictures, maybe if I take them outdoors the colors would be more true. My brother saw the Eiffel Tower one and since he had been there last year confiscated it from me. Just as well, I think I would prefer a different color.

I've been reading Nora Roberts, The Hollow and although it took me no time to finish Blood Brothers, this one is taking longer. I will pursue and also read The Pagan Stone, need to know how it all ends. Any Harlequin readers out there, if you have an e-book, check their site out, 17 books for free. Now I havn't read any of their books for eons, but think they will be quick and easy reads.
