I've been busy on my other blog, http://www.embroiderbee.wordpress.com
Peanut, one of my stitching buddies, pictured at left, thought it would be a good idea to re-post that blog's address, as there's much more activity over there ... and several free sampler designs which you might like. Just a thought, but then, Peanut's always thinking!
I am so grateful to Traci Horner of Ink Circles for sending me a copy of Wiehenburg's Butterfly! Long story, but it's here and all thanks to Traci's intervention. She's a great gal and a wonderful artist.
I have to add a few designs to my growing list of HoTS and WIPs ... in addition to the freebies that I can't resist. I fell in love with Cosmic Handmade's, By the Sea. I love it and it should stitch up quickly. I especially love the verse by Anne Bronte. I'm going to copy it out and put it into a little pocket on the back of the frame. As Theresa of the Real Housewives of New Jersey would say, "I love, love, love it!"
Still no Butterfly, and no response from either of the emails I sent last week, one to Martina and one to Rodger. However, I see that it is now being sold on Ink Circles, so it must be available in the USA.
Am STILL waiting for Wiehenburg's Butterfly pattern to arrive. I paid for it in January, and since then I 've written several times to enquire about when it will arrive. They say they're waiting till they have enough patterns to mail to the USA, to save on postage. Hmmmph! I love the Butterfly design, but I do not love waiting four months to get it.
