Monday Musings

I am on vacation now, so don't forget to enter my giveaway for Jodyri threads and I'll post about what I stitched on November 26 (U.S. Thanksgiving). 

I visited a LNS in London, Ontario, Thread & Eye and it was fabulous!! I wish I could get there more often. It's beautifully organized and has lots of new cross-stitch finishes on the walls. They have a custom framers as part of their store as well, and they have an exclusive Ink Circles design, Reflections of Canada!
from Thread & Eye Facebook page

Isn't it fun? I've resisted the temptations of Ink Circles Reflections of London and Reflections of Paris, but I couldn't resist this one. So far I've found oak leaves, maple leaves, totem poles, Parliament buildings, hockey sticks, inuksuks, Mountie faces, snowshoes and eagles I think. I picked up some ecru/beige fabric to stitch it on and I plan to use Jodyri Ruby Slippers. I only have one skein, so I'll need to order a couple more. It looks pink in the photo I linked to, but it's a lovely rich red colour in real life. 

As for stitching, well I can't show you since my contest isn't over until Thanksgiving, but there hasn't been a lot yet anyway. Very busy with everything going on for birthdays. There are some big ones this year with my older brother turning 50, my dad turning 65, my Grandma turning 92 and DD turns 2! 

I hope everyone had a great weekend and don't forget to check out the Stitchery Link-Up!

Happy Stitching,



  1. What a beautiful cross stitch! Thank you for sharing it! Christine x

  2. I've been debating over Reflections of London myself!

  3. Love that piece - it keeps trying to come home with me and it just may make it.

  4. Oh that's beautiful. What a fun piece. Can't wait to watch it grow.

  5. I'm not personally keen on Ink Circles but for some reason I love this one, Paris and London. Weird eh? I shall look forward to you starting this with your gorgeous hand-dyed thread. :)

  6. I'm not surprised you couldn't resist this one! It's lovely. Your hand-dyed thread will be perfect for it too.

  7. Wow that is gorgeous, so elaborate. I can see why you had to have that one.
