Good morning from your local Starbucks!
I am not a huge fan of Starbucks. I may love my coffee, but I'd rather make it at home than buy it somewhere else. However, I have a doctor's appt. this morning and DH and I have date night tonight so I drove him to work and am sitting at Starbucks until my doctor's appt.
Yesterday while running errands I found this cute tin bucket for $1. I couldn't resist it. You know how much I love unique containers. This fits the bill. Anyway, it's perfect for temporarily holding my Cyber Stitching items until I have time to start stitching. Last night I traced all the patterns from Anni's book onto the fabric. When I get home later today I'll pull the threads, needles and scissors together so I'll be ready to start stitching. I hope to get some time in today stitching, but first I have to paint our pantry. Tonight DH and I are going out for dinner and then we are going to see Get Smart.
Here's a peek at my other new quilting endeavor. I've decided to take the plunge into embellishing my quilts with beads. I bought the book Beading on Fabric to guide me. It's a great book. Rather than spend lots and lots of money on many packages of beads I bought a package of mixed beads, a beading needle kit (came with needles, needle holder, finger pad and threader), beading thread and this small container. For around $13 I'll be able to test how well I like beading on fabric.
If you're Cyber Stitching this weekend, don't forget to post about it. I'll be sharing my progress once I get started. Otherwise, have a great weekend!
