Thank You Riona!!!! New Stash and Hooky Happenings

I would first like to thank Riona, over at Oubliette for the amazing gift. What stitcher wouldn't love new stash.
Looky, looky, looky, at what I got in the mail today!!! I won Riona's Giveaway a few weeks back for a gift certificate to 123 Stitch. How I just loved pouring over the site, putting things in my wish list. Finally after a few days I decided on my purchase. I just added a few extra of my dollars and got these two charts that I have been eyeing for over a year or more, and some threads for the sampler.
Ink Circles: Cirque Des Cercles
Shakespeare's Peddler: Jenny Bean Sampler
Well, I could hold off and I put a few stitches in Jenny, and I'll have pics for your soon.
And I think I'll have a hard time deciding on the direction to go with Cirque. I have seen so many fantastic versions of this.

On the Hooky front, I tried out a new flower pattern for my hats. I think it turned out pretty cute. I also came up with another idea for embellishments that I think I will share with you soon.

As for the Sampler that I need to frog, well, I put that off for a while. I didn't want to but... well, another abandoned project for now. It's the story of my life.
Thanks for stopping by,

I love the flower on that hat! Super cute. Even my husband glanced over while I was on your blog and said how cute it was, and if a guy likes it, you know it must be good :-)

What a cute flower! It looks perfect on that hat.

Circles was such a problem for me since there were so many, many gorgeous versions out there! And when I finally went with red on yellow, folks kept coming out with more combinations! There's so many different versions of it and all gorgeous! Good luck picking one.
