Inky has had a good week this week! A bit ago, I saw that Anne had gotten one of these floor stand from Michaels. I asked her about it and she gave it a good report, and so I grabbed my Michaels coupon and picked it up - for only $31.00!! It's lightweight, but perfect for me - I can move it room to room. It was fairly easy to put together, although it was missing a bolt on the bottom. Never fear, though, the nice lady in customer service said she would send it out the next day.
You'll notice that I'm taking a break from the Cabin Fever piece. My back and shoulders have been so sore and working on that piece in hand has really aggravated them. I was just going to work on this L*K ABC Lessons for a night or two, but then I got the stand and I can't stop! I've made tons of progress since this post!
Can you spot Inky??? He's by the scissors...
I'll probably leave Cabin Fever on hold for a little bit, because I have the hard to find LHN Busy Needle chart in the mail from Lynda and it needs to be passed on when I am done. So, of course, it needs to come next. : ) I'm so excited to stitch that. It is such a pretty design!
Speaking of pretty designs... I was cleaning out under the sink yesterday and I found my very own scissors frog that had been my Great-Aunt's... it even has her name in her handwriting on a piece of masking tape on the bottom. Too cool. I put it in a sherbet glass that I had in the cupboard, and loaded it with all my silver, pink and red scissors. So pretty! I've seen a few of these frogs on the Scissors Scamper. Have you joined yet? I'm going to be picking up part of the prize today or tomorrow. Be sure that you are in the running!! : )
Now for a favor. I have this Shepherd's Bush Fa La La chart and leftover threads that I would like to trade for a used Shepherd's Bush chart. One of these charts would be really high on my list...

By the way, the stitched piece in the picture just shows what the chart looks like. I won't be sending it along, sorry! ; )
OK, one last picture. Here's the gorgeous St. Patrick's Day rainbow that was over our house. It was double on one side and went from horizon to horizon. There *must* have been a pot o' gold at the end of it, I'm sure!! ; )
