At Last Another Stitchie Update

I've finally done a bit of stitchin' this year, unfortunately it's only been this one piece. It's cute and oh so primitive, I just LOVE it and have a few more I want to stitch.
Sampler Pear VI
A freebie from Samplers-And-Santas blog.
It's stitched on 28ct. Natural Linen using DMC Threads.
The line around the pear is where I intend to hand stitch it before stuffing it as a pin pillow.

I did manage to do a little stash shopping this month. Stitchin' stuff around Billings, Montana is in short supply lately. I hadn't been in Micheal's, Hobby Lobby or the new Jo-Ann's Superstore in quite a while, but was not really surprised by the lack HUGE lack of stitching supplies available. Micheal's and Hobby Lobby have dropped almost all of their DMC specialty threads and Pearl Cottons as well as any Mill Hill beads they used to carry. Hobby Lobby has added some of the Sullivans threads and supplies.

 This is my total haul from all three stores minus the one pack of Mill Hill beads I already put away. The 28ct. fabrics, Pearl Cottons and Milliners needles came from Jo-Ann's.

 These beautiful Sullivan's Scissors came from Hobby Lobby.

 This totally adorable bank came from Micheal's. 
I have a thing for the old sewing machines ya know.

I'm still really concentrating on getting my Genealogy done up on as well as on my computer. My hubby bought us a newer version of Family Tree Maker that you can download what you've put on to the Family Tree program, which will be a Godsend if my computer ever has problems. 
I've put my Genealogy on my old computer at least 4 times and every time it went down I lost everything, even the back up disks had problems and I had to start over.
This year my Hubby put together a brand new computer for me, I'll have to take pic's of it later, since I always forget when I have the camera out. He likes to start from scratch and buy the pieces he wants in them instead of buying one at Wal-Mart, takes a bit longer, but I have a much better computer that he can upgrade it when he needs to.

Well, that's it for now, hopefully there will be more stitching in my future.

Take Care All and Happy Stitchin'
