Here is my St. Reatham start. I completed a dog and a tail! I love the silk I picked out. I'm so excited to start this piece. It will be hard to only work on it once a week but maybe that is what keeps it fresh? Next week I won't have much time because I'll be getting ready for my vacation and the following Thursday I'll be on said vacation and currently I don't plan on bringing it along. Unless I have room in my luggage of course. ;-)
Yesterday was also a good mail day. My Lakeside Linen fabrics arrived from Needlecraft Corner. Now I'm almost ready to start the Girl Series from Carriage House Samplings (just need the silks). And Quaker Study is all ready to go. Now do I bring Quaker Sampler II from With My Needle or Quaker Study on vacation?
Also my My Picture This Plus fabric arrived for my Cirque des Cercles. I'm not sure what to make of it. The swatch of Phantom I saw at my LNS was so much darker, which is what I wanted and the swatch online was also very much darker than what I received. But how many more times should I try to find what I'm looking for? Or do I try to re-die this piece to the dark shade I want? Or do I just try and give it a go and see how it looks after I start? I thinking I should have waited until I found a piece in person - then I would get what I wanted for sure but I so seldom go to places where the linen is sold I could be waiting forever.
Here is my scissor pocket when it is open with the scissors. I still need to make a bob.
Here is the back.
Thanks for all the comments I have received recently! And a few new people stopped by - thanks for that also. :-) I haven't had much time to check out other peoples blogs lately but I plan to catch up while I'm on vacation.
