Fabric!

I've found a local fabric shop! Hurrah! It's Fabricland - a chain in southern England. Does anyone have any views, good or bad, about them? H and I are going to go on Saturday and pick out some fabric for the back and lining of Orlaith's stocking. H is really following the progress of the stocking avidly as Orlaith is his first niece (he isn't normally be so keenly interested in the rest of my stitching! LOL), so I think he'll have some views about what to choose. Probably the only time I'll ever get him inside a fabric shop without protest :)
Last night was the Snowbird SAL night, so here is my Paradigm Lost update:

Slowly but surely getting this motif finished! I've got renewed energy for it, though, and really enjoying stitching it. This SAL is my first, and I'm finding it really motivating for such a big project. I think it might be the way to go for larger projects in the future as it's so much more fun doing it with all the other wonderful stitchers to keep me motivated.

I spent some time on Wednesday stitching Spanish Wine - the grapes are starting to appear.

Wishing you all a happy Friday and a most wonderful weekend - happy stitching!

Stephanie - Your Paradigm is looking wonderful!! You will keep us motivated with your progress. When I see what you have done and how lovely it is I want to keep stitching. Nice work.

Excellent news on the fabric shop. I hope that it proves to have a large selection of very nice choices. Thursday and Friday, Patty Anne and I went to a sewing (etc) expo and did manage to find a few half yards of fabric to add to our collections. (:-?) You may have already explained, but Orlaith - is that Irish?

Next week is Thanksgiving (here). I'm hosting, so you know what that means! Yikes!

Hugs.
