Darn Stitching Bug Has Evaded Me!!! BUT I WILL FIND IT!!!

Hello Everyone ~

Well I must say I wish I had more stitching news to report. Sadly, that darn stitching bug has evaded me ever since I finished the Faerie Mushroom House piece at the end of September. There has been a lot going on. My kids & I took a trip to Southern California. I went to my high school reunion, which was a lot of fun! Plus I just have been going thru a lot. However, I have been doing a little bit of shopping on the website as well as on the Heaven and Earth Designs website, both of which are absolutely wonderful sites! I do highly recommend them both!!! And after doing some pattern shopping, I do feel the clouds beginning to lift and the stitching bug has started to come out of hiding. So tonite, after my husband leaves for work, and my kids go to bed, I am going to sit down & attempt to work on one of my WIPs. ***Fingers Crossed*** that the darn bug comes fully out of hiding once my fingers meet with needle & floss & aida/evenweave!!!

So I am very excited about the patterns that I have purchased. From Patterns Online, I purchased some holiday designs, which are very cute. And from Heaven and Earth Designs, I purchased Small Things in color and Small Things in black & white and also the Sol, Stella, & Luna Chart Pack, all of which are simply stunning. With the Small Things design, I like them both so much that I just couldn't decide which I liked better. So I decided that I would get them both. And since I already have some other black & white designs, I am going to dedicate a whole wall in my house just for those in black & white. So I'm curious, after looking at both of the versions of Small Things, which version do you like better? Color? Or black & white? Or are you like me & absolutely love them both?

Well, that's enough from me for now. Happy Stitching to everyone! I hope you are all having an excellent weekend. I'll report any progress that I make during tonite's stitching!

I like the color Small Things better. I can't really explain why, I think it just gives her more personality.

Good luck on finding the stitching bug, I'm sure you'll have it back in no time!

Thx for swinging by my blog Margie! Now, I totally love both versions, but I'm gravitating towards the color....
