  1. What wonderful shopping you have done. Is that Auriful wool thread? I’ve heard that is just dreamy to work with. By the time I was ready to try some, my shop stopped carrying it. I should order some from Karen.

  2. Oh dear, what loveley fabrics! You know perhaps that I love repros, and have a nice collection already, I can hardly use them, they are so wonderful. Thank you for the link to this fantastic shop! I defenitely will give it at least one try….!

  3. Don’t you just love shopping and getting great new things? I love the fabrics and that the book you purchased looks fantastic! Hope you have a wonderful week.

  4. Hey Stina! So pleased spring is starting to creep closer for you – it will take you a little while to thaw out after such a cold, snowy winter! And what better way to cheer up in time for spring than to SHOP!! Tee! Hee! Hee! Your book looks like it would be great just to look at, not to mention the hours of stitching fun you’ll have. Can’t wait to see what you create – carefully to protect your poor recovering finger! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS

  5. I love the fabrics you bought! And the book looks so interesting, I have one from the same author and I like her ideas too. Lovely little parcel, hope you can show us your stichting! Have a great weekend!

  6. Love your blog! Your “strangest day” story was very interesting. Once, about 20 years ago, my husband and I were driving home on the highway, when I got a bad feeling that something was going to go wrong. I told him about it and asked him to be extra careful. He was like, OK… Within a quarter of a mile our timing belt broke and the car died at the side of the road. Now he thinks I’m psychic. It *does* happen to people occasionally. 8)Happy stitching,Susanhttp://www.susanintexas.blogspot.comgentle_poster@charter.net

  7. Those fabrics are yum yum yummy Stina – not sure why, but I just love the pink and brown fabrics, but have yet to start a collection – hmmmm maybe soon, LOL. Glad you got the thread. I’m going to start a redwork project using the red Sulky.Hugs – Karen
