Angry Muriel

Well.  I'm quite annoyed with my hostess right now, friends, and I think it might be time for me to move on soon.  Remember that renaissance faire she promised me?  We DID go....but thanks to a change in plans, I was left in the car all day!!!  Hmph.  (Hostess: The original plan was to put Muriel in her travel pod in my purse, and then use the wagon to tote both my purse and Wee One around for the day...Wee One quickly abandoned the wagon, it became a huge hassle to pull around , and DH took it back to the car.  With my purse.  My apologies!)  She claimed I did not fit in her little belt pouch, so I am sadly missing from pictures like this one.
Ah well.  Perhaps my next host will be more considerate.

On to other topics.  I noticed that several of  you asked for pictures of the stash my hostess brought home, and I am happy to report that I WAS able to procure these for you.  
First, a couple of pattern books from the 1980s, including the Gerda Bengtsson one she mentioned in a previous post.
A huge bellpull depicting some sort of nautical history, a magazine, and 2 packets of pattern sheets that reminded me and my hostess of the patterns on the Tante Zolder blog site.
My favorite pages from the magazine.  I can't decide...the little mushrooms that match my attire, or the lovely blue wildflowers on the left-side middle of the right page?
And finally, I took it upon myself to prod my hostess into starting the annual ornament for her daughter.  I like this - I think I match it nicely.
This is the Carriage House Samplings "Toy Shop Sign" from the 2007 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue.  My hostess is stitching it on 32-ct. linen -- she didn't have the 36-ct. used for the model, and she is substituting all the flosses as well.  She does that a lot.....

Madame Muriel! You mustn't get too angry with your hostess. Remember your next stop will be amongst those who read your comments and they may become fearful of your wrath.
I loved the introduction to the stash. Your hostess has great taste - or perhaps it was your splendid assistance?

Poor Muriel to be so neglected. Perhaps you would like a visit to a nice warm climate where you would be appreciated. How does Arizona sound?
