My New Stand And Some Headless Quilters

I am so happy to announce that my fabulous stand arrived yesterday, and I love, love, love it!

 Oh, she is so darn pretty that I just cannot "stand" it! (Get it? LOL) But really, this stand is divine!

 It has an attachment that includes a daylight low watt light, a chart clip, and a magnifying glass that swivels easily for when it's not in use.
Look at the magnification of the ladies!

As you can see I am way more excited than either of the dogs are.

I stitched the night away with my stand, and have made some great progress on "The Quilters," however I just wasn't loving their heads as charted, I felt that they looked more like beanie wearing gals than Amish women, so I frogged their heads and have been playing around with different bonnets.

I unleashed my inner Tudor and  in my best King Henry VIII voice, I proclaimed "Off with their heads," but in the end every woman needs her head, so, I will show you what I come up with when they are all finished.

I am just giddy with love for my new toy from Santa.
Thank you, Santa my sweet!
