Ok, so I am supposed to be "on the Wagon," meaning I am supposed to be stitching from my stash and not buying anything new. But I stumbled on "Sampler Wreath" by Mary Beale and couldn't resist it. I got it for $25 on eBay and was happy to get it for that price.
Lovely, isn't it?
And then I heard of a needlework shop closing in the Washington, D.C. area. I believe the lady who runs the shop also designed a few pieces (under the name Merry Designs). So I had to buy her Day Lily design before it becomes unavailable. I saw it in person at a needlework exhibit a year ago, and it was striking.
Well, so much for staying on the Wagon...!
