Colonial Dry Goods update

This is a piece I started way back in 2005. I must admit I got a bid bored with the border so I put it down for a while. I was thinking today what I could start next, then Colonial Dry Goods popped into my head. So I got it out and stitched the rest of the bottom border. It's a LHN design and I like the old fashioned look to it. I just have a row on either side and the top of the border to do now.

After this one's done I really want to start on LHN My Needle's Work. I'm just waiting on the fabric which should come in the mail next week. I'm looking forward to stitching it.

I'm really liking a lot of designs from LHN and CCN. They must be coming in second, behind Shepherd's Bush as my favourite designer. I've got some more of their charts on order at the moment.

An update on Thread Gathering kit... I've found a shop that has two left, so I should be able to get one. Next time they bring out a limited edition kit, I must take more notice of it and decide whether I want to get it in a shorter amount of time.
