Yesterday I got 3 new charts in the mail from my LNS ( a place I've actually never stepped foot in). These are the first charts I've ever purchased outside of kit form. I've only ever been to Michaels and JoAnns for cross-stitch supplies, but Michele talked me into branching out. And, since I still don't have the guts to go visit a shop in person, I ordered the charts online. My heart was aflutter when they arrived yesterday!
(Please forgive the poor lighting. It's overcast and snowy here today. I couldn't get good lighting inside so I took them out to the back porch, and that was only a little better)
I'm not ready to start these just yet. I want to work them on linen like they call for and I have no experience stitching on linen. So I'll put them aside until I've done a few small projects on linen to test the waters. But they are so lovely, it makes me anxious to get to work!
I need a user-picture. It seems like many people use pictures of their work for their user-pic. I feel like I don't have anything suitable for that. Maybe I can find a small project for that purpose.
