First, once I ordered that Just Cross Stitch DVD with all the issues from 2001-2010, I changed my mind on some of the ornaments for Emily's box. This also meant I had to order some materials that I didn't have, including Fuzzy White stuff from Rainbow Gallery (and I found out that both 123stitch and ABCstitch don't carry it). Second, the cottage I have been working on requires By Jupiter! charms (also not carried by those two stores). I ended up ordering everything I needed from Needle in the Haystack in San Francisco. The store comes highly recommended from Edgar of Blacksheep Blog so I decided to give it a try. They were out of stock of a lot of stuff but are ordering it for me but I won't see most of it until late December or early January. It's fine because I think I was running out of time to get everything done.
Honestly, I'm getting tired to ornaments so I'll shoot for Emily's birthday instead to get the remaining ones done. I decided to do some more stitching on the cottage.
I am also starting a project that I am hoping to finish by February for my wedding anniversary. Here's what it will look like:
I cut the linen yesterday. It's 28 count Waterlily Linen
