Long time no hear! I have been back over a week now from our March break trip to Tuscon Arizona. Am behind on blog reading and the 3 hour time difference has made me more forgetful and out of it than usual!
We had a wonderful time in Tuscon . This is the second year we have gone to the Westward Look Resort . The scenery is beautiful. There just happens to be a wonderful cross stitch shop in Tuscon that has wonderful models everywhere and helpful staff. They were having a great sale too .
I was able to get a lot of stash from a $2 box that when I took it to the cash it was only $1!!
Things I might not have bought at full price.
I didn't take any pics of the inside of the store as the owner wasn't there but they certainly have a full stock . Here is what I purchased, If you
click on the picture you will see 'Tis Spring' by Homespun elegance. It came with a little gold ladybug charm. I saw the little house neighborhood done over one and it was beautiful. Got some linen for another future project.The Cricket Collection leaflet was $1 at a place called Bookmans that sold used books, records, magazines and a lot of craft mags with a sprinkling of x stitch leaflets. My son had a heyday in there as he found a lot of books he wanted. I also had a new start . I hope to do four of these and put them in my kitchen . The first one is 'Cupcake' , with tart, pie and cake hopefully to follow in the near future.In the picture are the new scissors I treated myself to. Elizabeth I with embedded with roses. I just love them. I hope to make a rose fob( in my dreams !!)
It is always great to get back home after a trip, but it has been a whirlwind since. Next tuesday I am having a birthday and my one year of blogging is coming up on April 29th. I am going to have a little give away to celebrate so stay tuned. Must get caught up on what everyone has been up to. Happy Easter everyone!!
