Family WIP

At work today I “borrowed” my boss’s camera and took a picture of my new WIP :) Since I get to stitch a bit at work, I thought why not snap a picture? I started stitching The Trilogy: Family. I really like these small designs… can ya tell? LOL!

I’ve been bad in the evenings as far as being productive goes. Because I bought the book The Golden Compass by Phillip Pullman. I just could not put it down, it was sucking me in! I was even dreaming about it at night! So, if any of you like a good fantasy story, that is clean (great for older kids!), and full of wonderment, and just fantastical. Go and read this book. I am eagerly awaiting tonight to start the sequel to this book. I bought the whole trilogy last Friday as one of my birthday presents :)

I mentioned yesterday I dropped by Acorns and Threads, my lovely needlework shop that I just adore. I am always looking for excuses to swing by. They all know me by name, and know my kids too! :D It’s great isn’t it? So, I had picked up this pattern it’s called Harbor Lights by Hinzeit. They have SO many great ones I want to stitch up. But then I’d have signs all over my house! :D So, I finally went with this one for now. My LNS has their trunk show there, it’s awesome! Well, I bought all of the floss for it, and thought maybe I’d start this in the next few weeks.

Acorns and Threads seems like a really cool LNS - you are so lucky to have it close by!

I'm gasping at the thought of how my manager would react if I asked to borrow his camera to take a picture of my latest WIP. They already think I'm so strange at work. LOL! I love this project, btw!

Ohhh...your new WIP is great! And you are right Heinzit has so many signs that are really neat and cute that I too would have signs all over my house :)
I like your choice!

I'll have to look for the Phillip Pullman books... I love fantasy and have not read these yet... Thanks for sharing, Hun! :-)
