Sometimes it is necessary to re-think plans we have made. That is exactly what has happened to me this past week.
When I signed up for this RR I planned to stitch my favorite city in the entire world - San Francisco. My love for San Francisco has not changed but the time available to design my city has so I've decided that I'll keep things a bit simpler.
'Hometown Holiday' is a design I've been wanting to stitch for some time and this is truly the golden opportunity. The town has everything to make me feel right at home - a lovely house to live in, a post office, church, library, bakery and of course a stitching shop. On the pattern it actually shows a toy shop but renovations should be no problem.
I will be stitching from 'A Christmas to Remember' Book 200 Collector's Edition by Stoney Creek. My fabric will be either a 28 ct bluebell jobelan or 32 ct twilight blue linen. I still have to toss my floss to see which will give the prettiest results.
What a relief - I can now look forward the this wonderful RR without design worries. Who knows - perhaps San Francisco in 2010.
