Happy Hermitter

New Start?!? I am blaming Juls for this one, she provided the fabric (bad influence I tell you). I had bought 2 other fabrics for this project (one was unstitchable and the other was used for another project) so I had put this pattern aside. Then I went to Julie's this weekend for an amazing stitching day and there amidst her enviable stash was the fabric that was meant for Silver Moon Tea: 32ct Belfast "Silvery Moon." Magically, every element fell into place and I broke my own personal record... 1900 stitches in 3 days!!!
Silver Moon Tea is perfect for me because I am a HUGE tea drinker. The little pig above is a gift I received from my friend Kristen, it is a tea buddy. Why? Because you should never drink alone.
While at Julie's she also gifted me with a pattern I have coveted for some time now, "Promises" by Nene Thomas! It will make the perfect compliment to "Pretty." And....
This STUNNING piece of fabric from Silkweaver called "Poltergeist!" I have been imaging what I will put on it all weekend! I was so excited after returning home from Juls house and thankful that I have such amazing friends to share my stitching with! The Maiden.
