A post from Kelli–
A few years ago, I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. Although it was a bit hard to deal with at first, I feel so much better now. One lingering issue that I have though is that I have a hard time sitting still without anything to do at night without falling asleep. Many times, when Jason comes home, we watch a TV show together before heading upstairs for bed.
I had been looking for another stitching project since I finished my most recent project “Dog Lessons for People” and so I dug out this beauty.
I had purchased this pattern a few months ago on one of our wonderful visits to meet Ila and didn’t realize quite how ambitious it really was. After a bit of planning, I got started a few weeks ago and haven’t looked back!
The pattern is by Willow Hill Samplings and is called Quaker Bluebird Sampler. The only thing that I am having issues with is getting more thread as I originally hadn’t purchased enough. I planned on purchasing some online, but found out that you can’t purchase directly from the company and are instead referred to the stores that carry their products. I was happy to learn that there was a store in nearby Decorah that carried the line, but my happiness was quickly dashed as they didn’t have the color that I needed. I’m still on the hunt to get some, but am going to try to find some online tonight! Oh the joys of living in the middle of nowhere!
