When Kelli and I went to Osage we found ourselves in the Cross Stitch Shop. I know you’re thinking I don’t cross stitch. I have and I even did recently…just not enough to show off quite yet. I do love cross stitch though. I keep hoping and hoping that once things just settle down a little bit I’ll be able to pick it up again. I have vowed that once I get to the new house I am taking some time for project for me, for our house. (We’ll see if that actually happens)
Anyway…The place we went to is the Stitchery Nook. I have to say first off, one of the reasons we loved it so much was the gal that was working at the store. She was wonderful-sweet and welcoming. The owner is lucky to have her working.
They have samples and samples and samples. It was amazing to see them all. Kelli and I like the ones with saying a lot. This saying we both liked.
They had goodies from a local designer that really caught our eye….
In the end we really loved MANY of the ones by Lizzie Kate. The inspirational ones are my favorites.
I had such a hard time choosing. I ended up with this one….
and this one….
Kelli got this one….
None of them are super time consuming and we love the colors in them LOTS.
The shop was a treat and I didn’t even tell you that they have lots of scrap booking stuff too. I am not a scrap booker anymore but from what I saw…there’s lots….I didn’t tell you about the retreat center either. Let’s just say, they have lots for crafters!! If you’re in Osage, Iowa or anywhere near it’s worth the extra gas to stop.
I so want to sit down and take some time for myself and start working on these but I am so bad at that. Give me a couple months and if you don’t see me post anything about cross stitching, send me a little note to remind me to stop and take some time. If the stitching is half as fun as the whole day of shopping it will be wonderful.
