"New" Old Stash

Here's my progress on the Guardian Angel for Sophia's quilt at Cole's Quilts. This is going more quickly this time than the first time I did it. I'm enjoying it, too. I don't usually like doing the same pattern twice.

DD's Dad was cleaning his room yesterday, and he found a box of old cross stitch magazines that I had forgotten were in DS's room. After I did my cleaning, I had a ball looking through the mags. It was like I had never seen them before! So that's my "new" old stash!

And the piece above is what I am going to start today! (I have a big stack of pieces I found that I want to do!) But this one really caught my eye! It kind of reminds me of the Seasonal Samplers by JanLynn. It's called "Patchwork Garden," and it was in the Aug., 1998, issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework. I'm going to do it on white 18 count Aida. I'm one of those rare people who still likes stitching on Aida! lol It will fit perfectly in an 8" by 10" frame! I have too many started already, but I can't wait to do this! It looks so springy and summery! I'm going to take turns working on this and the Autumn Sampler.

Well, nothing but stitchy news today! Better go and fix lunch! Have a day full of happy moments and may God bless you!

P.S. - I was reading through my last few posts and realized that I failed to mention that DD's Dad finally got DD's car fixed. Yay! Yay!

"Patchwork Garden" is gorgeous! I'd ask if I could have the handmedown pattern when you are finished, but my own stash pile is 5 shelves high at the moment. I look forward to seeing your progress on this one.
