A slump slows you down

but doesn't prevent you from acquiring new projects.  Not when they are this great.  I haven't received a new sampler chart in a while and don't really need any, but when I saw this from Merry Wind Farm, I couldn't pass it up.  Different.  Small.  Not complicated.  Fits a standard frame but would make an excellent sack too.  Plus, wool threads.  I tried them once and my uncontrollable tension caused issues and breakage.  Being sick has made me weak so maybe now's the time to try again!
 
I pulled colors for Notforgotten's Blue Belsnickle and will start after meds kick in, followed by Melinda's Ellen Ford.  Click either title for their Etsy sites.  I will order the wool threads this afternoon.
 
I want to mention that several readers have told me that they are no longer getting post updates through email.  I have no idea why, but if you are having this problem, add your email again in the right side bar, or email me and I can add it to my settings so you will receive the posts.
 
Have a good day folks.

I hope you are feeling better today my friend. Your new chart looks great!

Every year I say...buy no more patterns until you make in dent in the stash. Then I remember hunting for a pattern that is no longer available because I waited. I just buy when I see something I want to do, so my stash is large. Who cares? I plan to live long enough to finish my stash, my Mother made 98! She was still quilting until age 96, arthritis. I must keep up the family tradition. Love the frame on the new sampler.
