Old covered bridges aren’t something we see in too many places anymore, a few small towns and parks might have them but we’ve moved on to sturdier construction and longer lasting materials. When you come across one they sure are fascinating to look at, definitely memorable at least.

Plight of Fancy from Long Dog Samplers is available at 123stitch.com
I’ve been craving a big sampler to work on so I started a wishlist for patterns. This one caught my eye today because of all the bright happy colors. Though, I confess if I stitched this sampler I would leave the alphabet rows off and either repeat one of the existing rows or add a personalized row instead. Alphabets on samplers just aren’t my thing.
We’re snowed in here, which really doesn’t take much in Virginia, but just looking at this pattern made me feel a little bit warmer.

Today’s pattern pick is a twofer. We had been discussing the Mill Hill Owlets that came out and how we’d like to see some new decorated egg designs instead.
Well, here they are
The Spring themed eggs from years past featured more “Easter-themed” things, which is fine and makes sense, but I have to say I’m really happy to see flowers on this year’s designs. Spring, renewal, flowers, growth. I love Spring, except for the allergies and the sneezing LOL
Looking closer at these two eggs, I realized they’re entirely beaded. Usually the little Mill Hill kits use the beading to highlight an area or to make something stand out, but these are beads from top to bottom. Shiny 😉
Each kit includes Mill Hill Glass Beads, Mill Hill Perforated Paper, Mill Hill Treasure, floss, needles, magnet, and chart with complete instructions. Just because a magnet is included doesn’t mean you have to make it into a magnet. You can add a hanger and use as an ornament for a spring tree, you can add a pin back, you could display it just about any way you’d like. Get creative! I look forward to seeing what you do
