Comfort House

As mentioned in my last post, I had another small design in the pipeline.

When I ordered Mrs Darcy I was sent this sweet freebie chart. It is called Comfort House by The Sampler Girl. It was a quick, fun stitch.

If anyone is interested in this chart, please leave a comment on this post - and if there is more than one person interested I will pick a name at random. Just the usual giveaway spiel :-)

I have ordered my fabric for Mary Wigham (32 count Belfast in Antique Ivory) from the Silver Needle. I was a litle ticked off with a short, unhelpful response to my query from a Kiwi ONS that I decided I'd shop internationally.

It was a blessing in disguise really, as something else fell into my cart while I was ordering the fabric (the Kelmscott Pink Lady needleminder which I have had my eye on for ages). I am sure you all know how that goes!

I got to cuddle with my niece this afternoon. She was the most alert I have seen her yet. She was lying on her playmat kicking her legs and making the cutest noises. She is 7 weeks old already... time flies!

Have a great weekend!

Comfort House is adorable, I'll put my hand up for it :)
Also where did you order Mrs Darcy from? Been reading the book 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' and it's bringing back some good memories :)

As for local shops, yeah, not always impressed by the selection we have here... and the Silver Needle sends some really cute freebies!

The Mary Wigham sampler is such a wonderful piece!! I'm still debating on what fabric and thread to use.... Can't wait to see your choice!!!

What a nice little finish. I love Tanya's literary charts. Well, I love all her charts, lol.
I also plan on stitching Mary Wigham. What a great SAL!

Siobhan said...

What a cute finish. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has the cart falling problem LOL

I love freebies, they help me forget how much money I spend on stitching! Wonderful finish.

I love the sentiment of Comfort House. And yes, everyone here lives for the weekends, too. The only problem is, they just aren't long enough! :)

Lovely finish Rowyn!

I don't blame you for shopping elsewhere if you weren't getting help from the other place. It's a shame but good customer service is hard to find lately :o(
