Well i did some more of love notes i went back to the top and filled in single stitches and did some more of her hair I find her very soothing to stitch
the mystery sampler starts tomorrowish and i don’t have my silks until next week sometime..
i am going to pick through my HDF’s and hope i can find something that i can add in to the mix that actually fits the combo i went with.. i make life so hard for myself…
talking about HDF’s i got 2 more mystery hanks which are 50 yards one is a midish grey , very nice but just not something i will use.. if anyone thinks they will have a use for 50 yards of mid grey HDF sort of 414 dmc equivalent but a bit lighter , but not as light as 169… if that helps
My Silk weaver fabs turned up and i LOVE wandering Ivy, i am so glad i finally bought a piece i have coveted it for ages, apart from porcelain i would have to say it is my fav silkweaver fab so now i have the fabric for Birch fairy… but not the floss so i am still safe from temptation
a big to sonya for sending me mor echocolate.. but i am bad.. they are ALL gone i can resist wrapped up blocks ( hence most of Vikky’s stash is still in the cupboard ) but loose chocs sitting there smiling at me was fatal especially the one that came from the Alberto kitchen yummmmmm
the item i am resisting buying today is … well actually there are a few all at Volarium..
are the mini designs from a new finnish designer Periphaeria
I especially like Tribe and The Courtyard of Alambria, there are also 3 new mags on the site i am coveting but especially the new Blackwork edition of Mains and Merveilles
spose i should go and stitch Elenia.. been frogging her a lot… i seem to have had a brain fade on how to stitch more than a single stitch of colour i ghave frogged her sleevemore than any other part of her EXCEPT the bodice, which is also bigger blocks of the same colour.. go figure
and finally Belinda has a new bookmark in her Assissi bookmark series..all her freebies can be found here i love the new spring one, the flower silhouettes are perfect
