Stitching inspiration...sigh!

What a great day! Off to the movies with a friend to see "Julie & Julia"...a great movie, lots of fun & lots of laughs about the world of blogging too!
We really enjoyed it & I would recommend it...not so much for our hubbies, more of one to enjoy with the girls...Stanley Tucci is delicious as Julia's husband...lovely to see those supportive husbands on screen...but, hey, we live with them every day...smile!
It is a 40min trip down the highway to the movies, so we needed to take advantage of being near a very good patchwork shop too...here are some snippets....


to make some beautiful coathangers which I saw on Linen & Raspberry's blog...designed by the delightful Marg Low! I also have seen them on Bloom...all very inspiring!
so I am going to do a big cut out this afternoon then I can stitch quietly tonight.
Oops...better get a move on as the lawn needs mowing too!


Liz from Broderie recently sent me some checked Jobelan...beautiful....I already have plans for it!
 I purchased it from Liz through her other blog.
Hope to post some pics of some completed "Dressy hangers" tomorrow...
hope you have some stitching time!
