Confession: I have no idea where I heard that saying but I like it.
I got an email this morning from Jen at Little Scraps of Happiness letting me know I won her "The Kitchen Linens Book" giveaway. I have been wanting to try hand embroidery and this is the kick in the pants I needed!
Also, this weekend while we were in LA for my friend Asma's wedding (beautiful bride, I'll post pics later), I got Jenny Hart's Sublime Stitching newsletter. She just got a few final copies of the Stitch-It Kit and the publisher will not be making anymore. I wanted to get this last year and the last time I tried to find it, I could only find expensive used copies on Amazon. So as Mr. Crafty slept in our oh-so-comfy (cough, cough) hotel bed, I ordered one. Shhh, I'll tell him soon. But not after spending money on gas, food & stuff in California.
