My Goodies

Back from yet another business trip to New Orleans. Don't think I'll ever tire of the city. Of course no trip is complete without a visit to Acadian Corner in Metairie. And once again the stash enhancement experience (s.e.x.) did not disappoint.

Lots of charts on sale (making room for new stock), so I got Bent Creek's Glory; Never Forget by Jeanette Crews Designs; and Gabriel the Messenger from Stoney Creek. Fabric choices were the Twilight 100% Linen, Blue Whisper Cashel Linen, and Plum Blossom Jobelan. As if that wasn't enough, the mailman left me a bundle while I was gone - Baby Georgia cotton yarn that I ordered from Little Knits. I'm so in love with their 10-skein bundles. The colors are sienna red, dark chocolate, and corn silk yellow that would make a beautiful striped something.

My favorite thing from Acadian Corner has to be this Damask square. Pic isn't the greatest but look close & you'll see a small circle in the middle for stitching. The owner suggested making it into a pillow...... what do you think?

Oh wow! Great stash! I'm guessing the rest of the trip was good, too? ;)

Please take me to New Orleans on your next trip! You find the prettiest things!

I really like the Damask square. What are you going to stitch on it?
