I was online tonight checking out some of the new charts. Has anyone seen the new Mirabilia Christmas Tree? I like this one a lot more than last year's. I love the doves on it. I'll have to add it to my wish list which seems to be growing quickly! I should have some new stash arriving either this week or next. I was successful bidding on a couple of older Prairie Schooler charts. I'm also waiting for some fabric to arrive.
It seems my love of cross stitch is generating some interest at work. During breaks I take my stitching with me. Several women have come up to see what I'm doing and I've learned that there are a few who also stitch. One of the older ladies in housekeeping commented on my Gingher scissors. Since she doesn't have a computer and is not computer literate, I offered to buy a pair for her online. She just wanted a plain pair not the designer ones. I managed to find a pair for her for only $11 including shipping and she is just so thrilled! I've also got one of my male coworkers stitching now! He is just about finished his first piece, a snowman, and he tells me he's hooked. Also one of our secretaries is now bringing her stitching to work. She's currently working on one of those computer generated charts from a picture of her daughter. We're slowly starting to take over the table at break with all our charts, etc.!
