Recommended linen and DMC thread
I bet you didn't even know I owned this did you? Well as of last week, I didn't! But when I read on the Needlecraft Corner website that Just Nan was coming out with another box, Barnabee's Bride (wasn't that a bee?) I knew I had to go find the ladybug kit and get on the list for the new one. I found it at my LNS. How lucky is that? I was also very bad - I spent close to $200 on stash. I purchased the Cranberry Sampler from the Needle's Prayse (Kelly - yeah! :-) ) - I've wanted this chart forever and was having a hard time finding it. And there is was, just sitting on the shelf. :-) And now it's mine. I also purchased Two Red Houses and Two White Houses from Little House Needlework's to go with my Two Blue Houses. Since I was there I purchased the over-dyed threads for Two Blue Houses. The three houses are charted for DMC but I want mine to pop a bit more so over-dyed it is. And lastly I bought the coolest LED stitching light. It clamps right onto Q-snaps and hoops. I'll take a picture of it when I have a chance. It will be perfect for stitching at agility trials. Lastly, I picked up M from Haberdashery Designs. This is a new designer for me. You can see A through M here.
I also finished my scissor fob for the Hooked on Exchanging exchange. It's going in the mail today - all the way to Europe! I'll post a photo after my partner receives it. I also worked on St. Reatham. I'll share a photo of that tomorrow. I got started on my Peacock Stitching Chair from Cat's Whiskers since the new one will be out soon. I'd like to have it completed by the time I get the chart and supplies for the new one. It's a super quick stitch. I'd like that part of the project finished by the end of the weekend.
And for those of you working on Sampler of Stitched from The Drawn Thread - STU is now available!
