Moments Of Joy

Life is too short to stitch what you ready do not want to, so I'm sorry but The Rose Of Sharon and Storykeep Seasons Spring are now on the wip pile. The best part, I can get away with it. So you might see both later or you might not.

On Sad news my nana died, she was 92 years old and loved my cross stitch, always asking what I was working on. 

I picked the following chart because of her, I love the words "Moments of joy to treasure" as I have so many with my nana. She would have love this on her wall. 

I don't know what I'm going to do with it as yet, I'm thinking of putting a few family photos with it in a frame.

So the chart is from Cross Stitch Collection, August 2012. I've used Sewitall fabric 14 count aida called Bluescape. Its green, white with a little bit of yellow. I got the fabric for another chart but don't think I will be stitching it for a while and I can get more later.

I would like to thank Miamina for telling me about the sampler. Its not for me but thanks.

I got more stash with the HEAD sale 

The chart I was going to get Entire Alphabet Series

Mini Golden Rose

Qs Queen Of Hearts

Pocket Fairy

Unicorn BES

I love all of them.
Now I'm going to stitch QS April Fairy. Happy Stitching!!!!
