Lazy Sunday

I suppose it's not very sabbatarian of me, but I've been enjoying shopping and stitching all afternoon long.

A little start . . .
My husband's cousin is having a baby in one month and her nursery colors are chocolate brown and tiffany blue. I had fun playing in my stash and coming up with this combination for the Lizzie Kate chart, "Bless the Baby." I plan to use these fabrics to frame it as a sweet pillow.

Impulse buys . . .


Hands to Work "I Wait For the Lord"


Carriage House Samplings' "Quaker House Samplers."

I could not resist these two beautiful charts this afternoon. I ordered them on sale at SBB--so who knows when I'll receive them--but I'm not planning to stitch either immediately so, no matter. I went ahead and purchased the silks called for in the CHS chart just as a special treat to myself.

What lovely colors your cousin has picked for her baby. I would have never thought of such colors and now they sound so wonderful.
I also love your new stash, I am wanting to get that CHS quaker houses design myself. I think I am going to have to order it today, I just love it so much. Enjoy!!
