Just popping in to say...

....I don't usually rave about things, but....I LOVE the latest issue of The Gift of Stitching!! (cover pic/link in my sidebar) The peacock sampler on the cover, by Papillon Creations, is gorgeous, and there are some super-cute designs inside as well. I love the Prairie Schooler charts inspired by Ukrainian eggs, and the autumn design by Marie Le Gouis. I actually stopped at my LNS on my way home from work today and picked up some of the hand-dyed flosses for Marie's chart! (You know, because I need to start something new....)

As for my current stitching projects, I finished stitching my Halloween exchange piece, and just need to do a bit of sewing to finish it up. I originally wanted to make a drawstring bag with it, but there were issues. :( Never fear, though, I had an alternate plan! Sadly, I can't post pics yet, but soon.

Isn't it great?!?! I swear I had to wipe the drool off my keyboard when I was finished looking at it, it's that exciting! ;o)

I so agree! I love that peacock sampler too and the peacock feather bookmark and oh, lots of other stuff too!
Look forward to seeing our Halloween exchange.
