Some of you may have seen in nicki’s blog that i sent her some pretty overdyed cottons..
wel i decided last night to order some pretty cottons from Crescent colours and Weeks Dye works for myself lastnight..
Dragonfly Dreams added The Workbasket cat and Mouse Quaker chart and i just had to have it.. I wanted the cat for me and the Mouse would be perfect for my friend Vix’s birthday ( eek end of this month) gift, i always make her something, but i only wanted something small this time as i am sending her a Knittery Gift voucher
So anyway i ordered that and then i thought well lets be bizarre and stitch it in overdyed cottons so then i went and played and ordered 6 cottons.. now about this point i guess Sue is rollingher eyes and wondering why i did not get them cheaper at SBand B given i have an order of silks heading to her to post to me.. what can i say.. i wanted the for the weekend… i definately want one for the mouse and that will need to be finished before the SB and B order even arrives i suspect.
So what colours did i order, including what silks are on their way via Sue..
From Dragonfly dreams i ordered ( mainly using using SBand B links cos they are bigger)…
Weeks Dye Works – 1329 Blackberry
Weeks Dye Works – 2274 Romance
Crescent Colours – 056 Pink Champagne
Crescent Colours – 098 Jelly Roll
Crescent Colours – 151 Bing Cherry
Crescent Colours – 148 Pickled Beets
The Workbasket – Quaker Cat and Mouse
on a side note if anyone is ordering from SBand B or another site that has Raspberry Tart or Love from Weeks Dye Works i would love a skein or two.. Those ones were not on the Aus site and i had already done my SBand B order etc..
then on the way via Sue is..
Belle Soie Elegant Eggplant
Belle Soie Fresh Raspberries
Colour wash Silk Blueberry
Colour wash Silk Cherry
Colourwash Silk Antique Rose
i think that is it.. i know bad bad fudgey.. i was meant to be buying fab for AMAP..
bad bad fudgey
so i just have to decide which would look good for the mousey from the top 6 colours and which one to use for the tribute to cheryl.. i am leaning towards Jelly roll for the tribute piece, or maybe i will usr my Orchid Gloriana still… must decide…
my Volarium stuff arrived less than a week after ordering.. must be the best service in the world IMO
spose i should go stitch elenia.. i doubt you will see pics from me this week i have nothing to scan until monday/tuesday
