LNS Trip - A new SAL

Well I managed to get out of work at a decent time yesterday so that I could make a trip to my LNS as some of my patterns had come in that I had ordered. So that was great.
I've been working some crazy hours this week... two more weeks to go of the overtime to go. So stitching will continue to suffer... sorry ladies.
Okay with that said though I signed up for a 12-hour stitch that they do at my LNS on Dec. 5th. So looking forward to that!

Okay... enough talking and more pics. :)
Here are the supplies I picked up for a new SAL I am going via the Stitcher's Showcase. There is a link on my sidebar if you want to join this group and get in on it.
The pattern is like an Ink Circles (but not) and so I picked a variegated (top 3 skeins in the pic) for the middle parts and one variegated for the border (bottom skein). This SAL starts on Jan 1, 2010. So I will hold onto it until then.


I also got the latest pirate design from Sue Hillis. This is one of my faves from the set:


I also picked up my PIF gifts for the three ladies who won last week. I will be sending them tonight. As I don't want to ruin the surprise for them I won't show you what they got until they let me know they've received it. ;)

Thanks for visiting, sorry I don't have any WIP pics today. Just haven't had any time to stitch. Maybe have some time tonight or tomorrow for a bit, so maybe ducky will get some time in.
Thanks for visiting and commenting! :)

Just checked out the SAL and discovered I have already stitched it. I did it in reds and really loved doing it.

I just adore the Sue Hillis pattern - and agree with the sentiment!! Lovely fibres you have and fabric you have for your SAL, can't wait to see it started.
