S.E.X.y Monday!








I had a wonderful day on Monday. One of the local needlework clubs took a field trip to a couple of shops in the east valley. I'm not a member of the club (I don't live in the area) but was invited to go by a member. We went to The Attic over in Mesa, a very nice cross stitch shop. I bought a couple of samplers and 3 pieces of Lakeside Linen. The gray piece is going to be for the pastoral piece. The other 2 pieces are just because I like them. After lunch, we went to another shop in Phoenix called Family Arts.. I love going there because it's non-profit with all it's profits going to women's and children's organizations. I found the 2 totes there (for half off) as well as the cat needlepoint canvas (also half off). The teal tote will be for Sherrie when she starts teaching. It has an area for your needlework and I found a nice quote from Plato that I plan on charting and stitching for the tote. The other will be for me along with the needlepoint canvas. Now I don't need any more stash but sometimes things are just too good to pass up.
