Yup, I had to drop by Papier! And you know what happens if I do, right? Yup, spend! LOL! *blush*
Well, I bought a piece of lovely flowery 12"x12" scrapbook paper, a heart shape stamp, like as if I don't have enough of heart stamps *LOL!*, a cardmaking magazine and, the one I like most, is the multi-shaper punch. It can punch around cicles!
I have yet to use it though. I got back late from the outing, and had so many other more important things to do first. I'm planning to give it a try this weekend. I will definitely put up some photos of the end result using the punch as soon as I get one done to my stisfaction.
On another craft note, I have already started on the top most band of the Long Dog Mystery Sampler which we are currently doing a Stitch-Along (SAL) at NNC. Although I have reached the top band, I have yet to complete all of the bands before this. Out of the 14 bands, including the mini bands, I have thus far only finished 2 bands completely. I will be going back to the last band again to finish each band completely. Like BJ, I am hoping to finish the LDSAL by August.
I promised myself that I shall not start on any new project until I at least got to the top band of the LDSAL. And, since I did get to the top, though I have yet to finish it, I thought I'd give myself a break and start on the much awaited project I have been wanting to do ever since receiving the yummy Carrie's Threads from BJ which I bought from the Sanguine Store.
Yup, I started on Cheryl's Bouquet yesterday. I am stitching on 14ct aida rustico oatmeal using Carrie's Thread's New Vision. I just simply love the way the colour changes subtly. So sweet! My favorite colour too! Pink in combination with green and a touch of yellow/beige, on my my favourite type of fabric - rustico oatmean! Simply awesome, don't you think so? *wink*
I just couldn't stop stitching. It was exciting to see the colour changes with every stitch! I just didn't want to put it down to work on my LDSAL. LOL! However, I know I had to put it down if I want to finish the LDSAL in August as planned. I would feel much better actually once I have finished the LDSAL. It's coming to 4 months already since we started on this SAL. I want it to come to a close soon so that I can concentrate working on so many other projects I have lined up! LOL!
I am pleased so far with the way this weekend is working out. I am hoping that this coming week will be a great one, though busy I will be.
