A NEW START


Missing Yo"u"
by Prairie Moon


18th Century Brown, 30 ct
Using GAST and Weeks threads


Greetings guys and dolls!  We have sunshine today and it feels soooo good.  Weather here in Utah is crazy, snow one day and hotter than blue blazes the next.  I guess you could say Utah's weather is like a box of chocolates, you never know what to expect!  lol

Sunday I started this fun little pattern by Prairie Moon. As I was looking at these photos I thought how strange the colors vary, the linen in the first photo is what it actually looks like.  I have ordered some R&R, Copper Penny linen and I am anxiously waiting for it to come, so in the meantime this is what got my attention.  You will see later how neat the bird is on it.  I think that is why I decided to stitch this one.  All it needed was a little revamping on the colors and a rich choice of linen.

I am getting excited for Wednesday to get here as it marks the first day of Shop Hop.  Sweet Loraine and I are going shopping together to find more stash!  Everyone needs more stash, right?!   It is going to be a fun day.  I hope you are having a fun and creative day. 

Smiles....

Great start Jolene...love the colors. And you and Loraine shopping without me?? :( Just kidding...You two have a blast...I know you will.

And I have been seriously thinking about going to Utah around the SB Retreat time. I'll let you know for sure. The Sisters and I would love to meet up with you, Loraine, and Terri and her friend. Wouldn't that be a BLAST??

Great new start, Jolene! I love Prairie Moon patterns! I wish I could go shopping with you and Loraine. Wait, I will go shopping with you guys in October and Yippee!!!! if Cari and her sisters join us, too! Julie and I booked our flights today - we get in at 1030 AM your time on the 21st so we'll have all day that day plus the next. I can not wait!

Ooh, I love this pattern! I think the bird is my favorite part, too. I love the color changes so far. I'm looking forward to your progress.

Yipee!! Can't wait for our Shop Hop tomorrow. It is going to be a blast!
(Do people still say blast anymore? I guess I do! LOL)
I'm driving the MINI, and hoping we can go top down for some of the day, if the weather is nice for a change. Wear your sun screen!
Love your new start. I can't wait to see more progress! Have a great day.
See you tomorrow!

I just found your lovely blog and have to tell you that your needlework is just beautiful. I have recently rediscovered cross stitch and am having such fun. Your start on 'Missing You' is wonderful. Love your color choices and I look forward to seeing the finished piece. TFS.
