A New Fixation

I have to confess, I've always had a bit of a weakness for the muted colors and the roly-poly little people in Shepherd's Bush charts. So when I saw "Father Yule" on eBay for .99 yesterday, I HAD to bid.... Then I went to the Shepherd's Bush website.

BIIIIIIG mistake.

Now I have to add to my wish list "Shepherd's Earth" and "St. Peter's Fair." And I have to try not to bid on either of these on eBay, should they pop up there......

Who am I kidding. I will end up buying them, and probably sooner rather than later!


Last night I worked on my Dragon Virtues afghan - I started the "Generosity" square. Right now it is just a green blob, so there is no picture yet.

Oh, and someone asked what the Woodland Sampler would look like when it is finished - here is a picture from the designer's (Something In Common) website.

The design was first released in an issue of The Gift of Stitching, but I think you can now buy the leaflet at various ONSs. My mom saw this picture when I was home - she has a terrible time envisioning a finished product from the pattern - and told me she "liked it all except for the skunks." hehehe I think the little skunk family is cute!

Hey Erin... drop me an email at flosslady99@yahoo.com. I've stitched St. Peter's Fair, and I *think* I still have the pattern. If it's still in my possession, I'd be happy to pass it on.

I am a fool for those cute Shepherd's Bush chubbies too :-) I hope to stitch Shepherd's Earth someday... if I do it fairly soon, I will let you know - you could simply adopt my chart afterwards :-) I have had it for at least 10 years, probably more. Guess this motivates me to stitch it now!
