I bought some linens recently from Wyndham Needleworks since they were on special. Mostly R & R linens as they're not always available 'on hand' at a lot of needlework shops. You know, I find it hard to buy linens online because sometimes when you receive them the colour looks different to what you were expecting. Overall I'm quite happy with these.
It's nice to have a few linens on hand to go with a new project. Keep in mind though that R & R linens tend to be on the stiff side.
Now onto Nashville Market. I'm sure most of you are up to date with what's been released by now? So what's your favourites? I absolutely love SB Blue Snowman!!! I'm a real sucker for these snowmen series they do and this one is just gorgeous.
Other favourites of the new releases are:
SB - My Land, Liberty Pincushion, Liberty Scissor Fob, and Lucky Sheep
BBD - Honeysuckle Manor book, and Snow Garden
SHAKESPEAR'S PEDDLER - Jenny Bean's Humble Servant Sampler
They're the main ones I like. I'm not going to race out and get them now though. I can wait.
Onto my SAL with Melissa. I really didn't get much done yesterday as I didn't have a lot of free time. I've stitched a few letters to the left of the woman and made a start on the tree. Melissa hasn't been feeling the best so she didn't get a lot done either. Hopefully she'll be feeling better soon and next time I'll have some pictures to show.

These pictures are from my progress of a couple of days ago. I completed the wording on Angel In Your Heart.
Angel In Your Heart - 18 February 2010
The chart calls for two DMC thread colours. I decided to change to a variegated GA Sampler Thread called Cidermill Brown. It's softly variegated but I am still happy with the way it looks.
I've been working some more on it last night (as it's now early Saturday my time) but have not been able to finish it yet. I'm going to be starting on another project with Melissa, so I'll try to complete Angel while I'm doing the SAL at some stage.
More pictures to come...

I'm working away on the Angel but there's more to her than you may think. It seems to be taking me a while to complete her. The whole project has been so enjoyable and I can't wait to see how it looks finished.

Another thread change for her face. I chose WDW Whitewash which has a soft cream tone running through the white. Oh, and I haven't put any eyes on her yet. Don't worry, they're still to come.
I'll have to get a wriggle on to get it all finished because Melissa and I are itching to start our SAL. We're going to make a start on it by the end of the week. Melissa informed me that Kellie has done Be Kind & Be True, so I had to have a look and it's turned out terrific! So I hope you'll join us on our fun little adventure and keep up with our progress on it.
