~~This Past Weekend~~

Happy Wednesday to everyone. Gee, I have really fallen behind with my visits and before this week is totally gone let me tell you about my weekend. Both days were busy and great fun too. On Saturday, Lisa and I took a short day trip to Modesto to the Elegant Stitch. I've talked about it before...well any way it is the neatest stitchie shop and on Saturday they were having a sidewalk sale. What fun! We both found goodies. I found some tuck pillows and charts for future projects and something I just love, love, love..... A scissor beanie! Now while I'm stitching, I'll rest this little cutie on the arm of my chair and my scissors will stay put...how cool is that? Here are some of the charts I got for my stash. The Zippity Do Da chart might be our next stitch along, but first we need to finish our current project. On Sunday....
was the WX Peddlers Faire. We were there and shopping at 6am. I found some sweet little things and this little girl is one of them. I love her...she has the prettiest face and her dress is just so festive, I think she is going to a Christmas dance. I also found these precious.......

little Goebel chicks for my Spring decorations. I found a couple of other cute things I'll be sharing later.

After shopping we headed for breakfast, at a new (it's old, been there for over 50 years) spot...The Market Club diner. Not a fancy place...but it has the best food. The chicken fried steak breakfast is to live for it is the best.

Well on that note I think I'll fix lunch....I've made myself hungry...Hugs, Linda

Sounds like fun! I guess I missed the fact that you cross stitch. My daughter has been doing it for years and makes the most beautiful pieces. I'll share some soon. I have just been learning. The pattern for the garden sampler looks difficult.
Blessings and thanks for your visit.

oooh congratulations on finding the cute little chicks to add to your collection! I like the sissor beanie, I am forever loosing the sissors down the sofa! ha,ha my mum and me share a large pair when we stitch together and still manage to loose them! I look forward to seeing the girl in your christmas decor, she is very festive. Love the cross stitch kits! The sampler looks very elegant, it will really suit your style of home decor....

See you again soon linda
