I absolutely adore cross stitching. It is what I would chose to do any day of the week and twice on Sunday. This is my cross stitch journal.

2013 Downstairs Project - Quaker Addict
This is my new downstairs project. I started on this right after the first of the year. It is called Quaker Addict. The pattern is done by the same company that published as I referred to it "the lady on the swing." I can tell you the pattern is written in French. I used 30 Ct. linen, in a mauve/pinkish color. I also used the gentle arts threads. I am down to the last little corner. Which is probably a good thing, as my plans for tomorrow is to go to "IN STITCHES" in Alexandria to purchase fabric for some of my projects. Last week, we went to a cross stitch store in Haymarket, the name was Needle in the Haymarket. I was lucky enough to purchase 2 patterns, which were marked 60% off, which totaled around $9. What a bargain. Speaking of bargains, we have a used book store in Manassas, called McKays. I go in there occasionally as you never are quite sure what you will find. I found another Rosewood Manor pattern called American Flag Quilt Sampler. Originally it was $8.50 for the pattern at "In Stitches," I got it for $1.62. WHOPPEE
