Statsh and update

I thought I would share the latest on the ongoing birth sampler:

The top has been completed and the name added. I had hoped to finish the back stitching on the name but I think that will be tomorrow evening and then roll up to the next section. Progress is being made!:)
Yesterday I decided to venture over to South Bend, IN and go to another favorite LNS and check out the quilting store! What Fun!
I stoped at Erica's a sewing and craft store. The fabrics are so yummy!! I will definately be back!
This is what jumped in my car:

Two lovely Australian embroidery magazines. I am a sucker for mags! Some pink and green fat quarters and a little kit to make a quilted wall hangin.

I also stopped at Needles Nest. I picked up the canvas and thread to do a Laura J Perin desin that was in one of my mags:

Then I picked up another of her designs and the canvas and threads to stitch it up:

Now if I could finish up the sampler I could start one of these!!
Until next time,
May you be blessed with stitches,
