Happy long weekend everyone, we have a real confluence of Abrahamic religious holidays this weekend, so I hope you are getting to spend some time with your loved ones if you can, or just enjoying the long weekend. I was hoping to use Friday to get all my chores done since everything would be closed and we would be snowed in still, but I will have to go grocery shopping, take the cat to the vet, get the mail from my PO Box, and do any other errands today since everything is going to be closed Sunday and Monday, so it will be slightly less of a lazy Saturday than I had hoped!
These two needlepoint canvases in the cover photo are so exciting to me! So the @ndlptnation Instagram community started doing a White Elephant canvas search on the first of each month, and I had ordered these Princess Diana Warm and Wonderful sweater canvases in February 2021, and they never came, and the designer ended up closing their store. I got refunded via Etsy, but still I wanted the canvas. I had even considered painting them myself. But then I thought I’d try this out and someone got them to me almost immediately (not with the shipping from Texas to Ontario) and I still cannot believe I own these. I’m so excited to stitch them!
