My January stash acquisition to kick of the new year with was the chart and supplies to stitch My Token of Love by Rosewood Manor, along with a few extra packs of my favorite John James Needles because you can never have enough extra needles.
Over the past year I’ve been eyeing several of Rosewood Manor’s patterns and they’re quickly becoming a favorite for me. If you’ve been following my window shopping adventures here on the blog you’ve probably seen them pop up a few times.
This first little bit took me about an hour and a half to get done. I always have this strange self-doubt in my ability to count when I’m placing the first handful of stitches into a new start. Also, I’m really liking having a needle minder, I’ve only been using one for the past month or so but they’re pretty handy to have.
(I picked my needle minder up at the Ship’s Manor Etsy shop ~ Erik makes some pretty awesome stuff)
All right – today is Ethan’s birthday (my youngest son, turning 12) and I need to get myself off this computer and put the finishing touches on his triple chocolate birthday cake before he gets home from school.
Have a fantastic day and happy stitching!
