Got new stash

I received this package of goodies from my friend Tara in one of my Yahoo groups! It has my favorite 28 count fabric, 4 fat quarters of fabric and several charms, including some cute angels and some ribbons to use on my SFAC project.
I can't thank Tara enough for her generous exchange package. I hope she likes the one I have sent as well!

A Vacation

My grandsons and daughter are coming to visit me the end of the month. My husband James is also going to be off for the week with me so we have lots of fun planned.
But one of the best things we are going to do just involves my husband, myself and some wild women!
Now before you get any kinky ideas, we are going to see Roller Derby in Austin! Check out this site:
I have been a huge Roller Derby fan since the 1960's when my parents, sister and I would watch them on TV on Saturday nights. Then A&E did a reality show about the Texas Roller Derby girls. Oh my! My favorite team is the Holy Rollers. With names like Miss Conduct & Punky Bruiser, who can go wrong?
My daughter is going to stay home that evening with my mom so we can go down the road to Austin to see them. It is like a dream come true! Ok, to some it might be a nightmare! But I CAN'T WAIT!

Is it really almost July?

I cannot believe it is almost July and I cannot believe I haven't posted since May 30th. Time has just gotten away from me.Now, on to the stitching world. Several weeks ago I participated in an embellishment exchange with my Yahoo group. This is what I got from Lizzy.

There are some great eyelets that I can use with my Crop-a-dile and some purple ribbon. Then there are these beautiful silver, lacy looking butterfly charms that I can't wait to put to use. Thanks again!
I am also participating in Rene's hardanger online class. Here is the fabric, threads and beads I chose:

The fabric is 28 count and is called Waterlilly. In case you can't see it, the color is this really pretty light green. The threads and beads are ecru. I can't wait to see how it all turns out!
Well hopefully in the next weeks I will work out my issues. In the meantime, keep stitching!
