This and That....

This is Carriage House Samplings "Helen Bell" multiplication chart... I'm doing it on Picture This Plus linen in a shade called "Relic"... not quite sure I like it, but I think the more I stitch, the better it will look. I didn't know that the "lines" around the numbers were not cross-stitched in. They are backstitched in! I don't do too well at backstitching, but I figure it will give it even more of a primitive look!

Pray that my deposit that I made at the bank today gets put in there tonight. No reason it shouldn't, but pray anyway! I went to Target after work for a "few things"... Ended up spending $60.00 which I paid for with my debit card - not even checking first to see how much money I had in my account at present time. Well, I now have $7.37.....

I went to Starbucks for a vanilla bean frapp after my trip to Target and a trip to the grocery store to look for a specific item that they didn't have at Target. Well, the grocery store didn't have it either! To fortify myself for the drive to the drug store, I needed a "drink"!

I cleaned the bathroom when I got home and got out for my walk. I haven't been walking the past few days due to the rain we've been getting. But a look in a three-way mirror in the dressing room at Target will get you out for a walk faster than you can say - Oh Lordy, please tell me I don't really look like that - LOL!

My husband is fixing dinner tonight - that is a nice treat. Grilled cheese and tomato soup - perfect for a " slightly chilly, getting ready to rain again" Wednesday night dinner....

I think that the Relic is going to work wonderfully for Helen Bell. I don't think that you're going to be disappointed in it. That fabric will really give it a great aged look.

I had to chuckle at spending all the money at Target. I love that store and it's definitely not hard to give them your paycheck.

Crossing my fingers and toes for you that the deposit goes through. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt!

I like your start on your new sampler. Relic is one of my favorite linens.

You asked what linen I'm using for Sarah Woodham, and it's 36 ct Pearled Barley. It's not marked as vintage but there is just a hint of marbling on it. I *think* it was the regular PB, anyway. HTH!

Linda and I figure that if our Target talley is less than $100, we haven't had a successful shopping trip!

...and, you can't beat a tomato soup and grilled cheese dinner!!
