As mentioned in my last post, I spent most of yesterday hanging out with Mom at her house. While Dad was busy framing the four pieces I pinned a couple of weeks ago, I spent some time checking out the new goodies Mom had picked up at the Baltimore market (and no, I didn't realize there was a Baltimore market until she announced she was going... I think it's a newer market). I got to see some beautiful new overdyed cottons from Weeks and Sampler Threads, and some delicious looking silks elizabethan silks, but I've forgotten who they were from! Horn books, new linen fabrics, there were so many lovely things to admire.
I showed her some of my newest finishes, including this little guy from the 2010 JCS Halloween issue:
I was also able to pick up an issue of this year's JCS Christmas Ornament issue while at Mom's. I loved so many more ornaments in this issue than I have in recent years. As you can see, I've picked out quite a few that I'd like to stitch up this year... wonder how many I'll actually get around to stitching!
