Unfortunately, in many ways, my local cross-stitching store is going out of business. December 22, 2012 Creative Stitchery and Frame in Richmond, Texas will close their doors unless they can find a buyer beforehand. This has prompted me to take a closer look at all my cross-stitching pattern horde and see what supplies I will need. I've special ordered a few items, and am making a list of some that I want to purchase during the clearance sale. I've heard from several of my fellow stitchers at the weekly Tuesday night "Wine & Stitch" that they are planning the same thing. The shop also carries wool fat quarters if you know anyone that quilts using wool, or uses it for any other craft.

By the way, I made the fabric protector around the Q-snap frame myself. See, I can finish a project! I just used remnant fabric and remnant baby elastic. Speaking of finished projects. I have a photos of two other projects completed in the last few months. The first is "Rose Motif Sampler", also by JBW Designs. Eventually it will become a pillow with a pink border, but I probably will take my time about it as I stupidly washed the project after completion. The Weeks Dye Works (Strawberry Fields) thread bled into the linen. This photo was taken pre-washing. Weeks Dye Works claims that their thread is colorfast but I'm here to tell you this is NOT TRUE.
